Data for Computing on Mobile devices and interoperation with stationary sensors and other data services.

This is a research course that requires active student participation and involvement. Each student will find 1-2 topics related to tracking, collecting, and storing data for mobile devices executing asynchronously. Data can be pulled, pushed or cached at various devices that can be either stationary or mobile. Mobile devices include sensors, GPS, RFID trackers, PDAs and any other device that has CPU and storage. The content data and the delivery requirements will be defined by the application.
