5.0Pervasive Computing
5.1 refers to the use of computers in everyday life, including PDAs, smart phones and
other mobile devices. It also refers to computers contained in commonplace objects
such as cars and appliances and implies that people are unaware of their presence.
One of the Holy Grails of this environment is that all these devices communicate
with that all these over wireless nnetworls without any interaction required by the
users see pervasive workplace.
5.2 Examples of pervasive computing
a) Smart TV
- Smart TV, which is also sometimes referred to as Connected TV or
Hybrid TV. (not to be confued with Internet TV, Web TV, or LG
Electronicss upcoming SMART TV branded NetCast Entertainment
Access devices), is the phrase used to described the current trend of
integration of the internet and Web 2.0 features into modern television sets
and set-top boxes, as well as the technological convergence between
computers and these televisions set/set-top boxes. These new devices most
often also have a much higher focus on online interactive media, internet TV,
over-the-top content, as well as on-demand streaming media and less focus on
traditional broadcast media like previous generations of television sets and
set-top boxes always have had.
The technology that enables Smart TVs is not only incorporated into
television sets, but also devices such as set-uop boxes, Blu-ray players, game
consoles and other companion devices. These devices allow viewers to search
and find videos, movies, photos and other content on the web on a local cable
TV channel, on a satellite TV channel, or stored on a local hard drive.

b) GPS
- The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based global navigation
satellite system (GNSS) that provides location and time information in all
weather, anywhere on or near the Earth, where there is an unobstructed line
of sight to four or more GPS satellites. It is maintained by the United States
government and is freely accessible by anyone with a GPS receiver.
The GPS project was developed in 1973 to overcome the limitations of
previous navigation systems, integrating ideas from several predecessors,
including a number of classified engeneering design studies from the 1960s.
GPS was create and realized by the U.S. department of Defense (USDOD)
and was originally run with 24 satellites. It became fully operational in 1994.

6.0 CONCLUSION
Open source can be used by anyone and because it has no copyright claims, so users are free
to use, change and improve the software, and to redistribute it in modified or unmodified
forms. Pervasive computing is to make our lives easier because we can interact with
computers. Besides that, we can easily give the computer commands and the computer will
grant your wish.
