Executive Summary

Distributed computing provides a strong foundation on top of which a powerful ubiquitous system can be realized. However, distributed computing is not solely sufficient for the ubiquitous systems - a completely new era of computer world which is not based on the conventional mainframes or PCs but on the virtually intelligent silent objects/devices used for day-to-day human activities. This paper describes basics of ubiquitous systems at introductory level and discusses developing a ubiquitous system as an extension to DIICS (Distributed Intelligent Instrument Control System) - a temperature monitor and control system developed by the author.
