As multimedia-enabled mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets are becoming the day-to-day computing device of choice for users of all ages, everyone expects that all mobile multimedia applications and services should be as smooth and as high-quality as the desktop experience. The grand challenge in delivering multimedia to mobile devices using the Internet is to ensure the quality of experience that meets the users' expectations, within reasonable costs, while supporting heterogeneous platforms and wireless network conditions. ...
Vision plays a fundamental role for living beings by allowing them to interact with
the environment in an effective and efficient way. The Machine Vision goal is to
endow computing devices, and more generally artificial systems, with visual
capabilities in order to cope with not a priori predetermined situations. To this end,
we have to take into account the computing constraints of the hosting architectures
and the specifications of the tasks to be accomplished.
Mobile service robots are the class of robots that have tools to understand the environments
at home and office. The development of mobile robots is increasing world-wide due to the
availability of moderate price sensing and computing devices. Moreover, there is a strong
belief that the market for service robots is just about to undergo a radical increase in the next
Mobile communication has received a lot of attention in the last decade. The interest in mobile communication on the Internet means that the IP protocol, originally designed for stationary devices, must be enhanced to allow the use of mobile computers, computers that move from one network to another.

This book describes how to program mobile telephones, pagers, PDAs, and other small devices
using Java technology. It is about the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP), which is part
of the Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME). It is concise and complete, describing all of MIDP
as well as moving into several exciting advanced concepts such as 3D graphics and cryptography.
This third edition covers MIDP 2.0, and has been updated to track the Java Technology for
the Wireless Industry (JTWI 1.0) de facto standard.
Learn to build and optimize attractive, functional web sites for smartphones Today, mobile devices outnumber desktop and laptop computers three to one. Skill in developing web sites that work on mobile devices is in demand, and this friendly, step-by-step guide shows how to build and optimize sites using HTML5 and other standard web development tools.
Mobile telecommunications emerged as a technological marvel allowing for access to
personal and other services, devices, computation and communication, in any place and
at any time through effortless plug and play. This brilliant idea became possible as the
result of new technologies developed in the areas of computers and communications that
were made available and accessible to the user.

Information Technology is growing rapidly. With the birth of high-resolution
graphics, high-speed computing and user interaction devices, Virtual Reality has
emerged as a major new technology in the mid 90es, last century. An explosion has
occurred in our understanding of Virtual Reality, Virtual Environments and in the
technologies required to produce them in the last decade. Virtual Worlds and Virtual
Environments are produced for people, for users to interact with computer and with
complex information sets....
This book represents a sample of recent contributions of researchers all around the
world in the field of image restoration.
The book consists of 15 chapters organized in three main sections (Theory, Applications,
Interdisciplinarity). Topics cover some different aspects of the theory of image
restoration. But this book is also an occasion to highlight some new topics of research
related to the emergence of some original imaging devices (see “Applications”
The field of information and communication technologies continues to evolve and
grow in both the research and the practical domains. However, energy efficiency is an
aspect in communication technologies that until recently was only considered for
embedded, mobile or handheld battery constraint devices.
IN RECENT YEARS, MOBILE DEVICES have gained popularity due to lower costs, small and sleek
sizes, and the capability to act as a computer with you at all times. The increased use of mobile
devices has created new issues for developers and network administrators, such as how to secure
the devices, how to deal with increases in bandwidth, and how to make existing codebases usable
on a device ten times smaller than it was designed for.
This book discusses these problems and many more, with a detailed overview of how to get started
developing for a variety of mobile devices.
Mobile phones are convenient and frequently invaluable, yet exposure to their
electromagnetic radiation is invisible. Therefore, any danger this exposure poses
may be easily dismissed.
• Exposure is long-term and its effects on the body, particularly its electrical
organ, the brain, are compounded by numerous other simultaneous long-term
exposures including continuous waves from radio and TV transmitter towers,
cordless phone base stations, power lines, and wireless/WiFi computing devices....
With employees, rather than the IT department, now driving the decision of which devices to use on the job, many companies are scrambling to integrate enterprise applications. Fortunately, enterprise developers can now create apps for all major mobile devices using C#/.NET and Mono, languages most already know. A team of authors draws on their vast experiences to teach you how to create cross-platform mobile applications, while delivering the same functionality to PC's, laptops and the web from a single technology platform and code-base.
Due to its superiority such as low access latency, low en-
ergy consumption, light weight, and shock resistance, the
success of ﬂash memory as a storage alternative for mobile
computing devices has been steadily expanded into personal
computer and enterprise server markets with ever increas-
ing capacity of its storage. As it has been witnessed in the
past several years, two-fold annual increase in the density
of NAND ﬂash memory is expected to continue until year
Chapter 6 - Wireless and mobile networks. Regardless of the future growth of wireless Internet devices, it’s already clear that wireless networks and the mobility-related services they enable are here to stay. From a networking standpoint, the challenges posed by these networks, particularly at the link layer and the network layer, are so different from traditional wired computer networks that an individual chapter devoted to the study of wireless and mobile networks (i.e., this chapter) is appropriate.
