What is Pervasive Computing?
John Spacey, updated on October 24, 2016
Pervasive computing is the integration of computing into a broad array of everyday things. This may include sensors, communication devices and control mechanisms that can be built into virtually all objects at a low cost. Such objects can then collect data, communicate with users and be remotely controlled by centralized computing services. Pervasive computing has both the potential to improve quality of life or to make it worse by invading privacy or introducing unpopular features such as advertising into everyday objects.
