Pervasive computing is the next generation computing environments with information & communication
technology everywhere, for everyone, at all times.
Information and communication technology will be an integrated part of our environments: from toys,
milk cartons and desktops to cars, factories and whole city areas - with integrated processors, sensors,
and actuators connected via high-speed networks and combined with new visualisation devices ranging from
projections directly into the eye to large panorama displays.
The Centre for Pervasive Computing contributes to the development of
- new concepts, technologies, products and services
- innovative interaction between universities and companies
- a strong future basis for educating IT specialists.
Pervasive computing goes beyond the traditional user interfaces, on the one hand imploding them into small
devices and appliances, and on the other hand exploding them onto large scale walls, buildings and furniture.
The activities in the centre are based on competencies from a broad spectrum of Research
Areas of relevance for pervasive computing.
Most of the work in the centre is organised as Research Projects
involving both companies and universities.
