I-centric services based on super distributed objects
The vision of pervasive computing and communication will shape individual lives in the future. Following this vision, the goal of 'I-centric services based on super distributed objects' is to provide a seamless computing environment on the basis of users' individual communication spaces. It controls and manages large numbers of autonomous and decentralized objects (super distributed objects), in individual living or working spaces providing services that can adapt to users' individual requirements (I-centric services). This paper introduces the I-centric communications approach and identifies the requirements and design of super distributed objects as the paradigm for future pervasive and autonomous systems. Results of this project have been adopted by the World Wireless Research Forum (WWRF) and Object Management Group (OMG).
