Abstract: Pervasive Computing environment gracefully integrates networked computing devices from tiny sensors to extremely dynamic and powerful devices – with people and their ambient environment. Service discovery is an essential element for pervasive computing to achieve “anytime, anywhere” computing without users’ active attention to computing devices and network services. Privacy and security issues, however, have not been properly addressed. Therefore, devices and network services may be unprotected; personal privacy may be sacrificed; and devices and network services may be inconvenient to use. In this paper, we will present what is pervasive computing and its applications. In particular, I will focus on how pervasive computing provides various features like security, safety, convenience, telemetric etc. to a car.
