Pervasive Computing

Ambient Computing, Inc. was founded in 2000 in Lawrence, Kansas to develop and commercialize technologies for pervasive computing and networking environments. The core approach was based on an architecture for coordinating sensor and control networks while maintaining preferences, location awareness, and security. The architecture was designed and implemented in 2000-2001. In 2002 we were awarded a SBIR Phase I project by the NSF to demonstrate the system architecture by coordinating wireless sensors and environmental control devices.

We extended the architecture proven with the prototype to develop our first product, a WiFi hot spot solution tailored for the cable industry. The complete solution included custom developed access points, captive portals, secure authentication and billing, support for subscription and prepaid accounts, provisioning, and management interfaces. The product was deployed in a field trial in September 2002, followed by a production system in March 2003.
