Ubiquitous computing is an advanced technology in the age of wireless networks that supports infiltration, activation and interconnectability of all the electronic and sensor-based objects related to everyday issues, and in this manner endeavours to empower a ubiquitous stream of information and data by coordinating learning and training. Ubiquitous computing is the method of enhancing computer-based computations by making use of many computers available throughout the physical environment, but making them effectively invisible to the user. The advanced technology of science and networks is instinctively welcoming the introduction of this revolutionary computing concept that guarantees to profoundly affect the way the authors associate with computing machineries, electronic gadgets, mobile devices, cyber spaces, and related peripherals. This new emerging technology of ubiquitous computing imagines a world where inserted processors, PCs, sensors, and advanced correspondences are reasonable products that are accessible at any time. Ubiquitous computing will encompass clients with an agreeable and helpful data condition that unites physical and computational foundations into incorporated natural surroundings. This living space will include an expansion of hundreds or thousands of computing gadgets and sensors that will give new usefulness, offer specific administrations, and lift efficiency and cooperation. The current research article projects technical and operational utility of ubiquitous devices with challenging issues in emerging ubiquitous computing.

Ubiquitous computing is a great contrivance that solves many challenges of current technology with its powerful features. It helps us in many different ways such as communication, geographical relocation, control and decision making, social connections and interaction, public and private meetings, invisible computing and virtual reality. This section of the article offers an effective point of view on ubiquitous computing that is still far disqualified hundred percent from the present reality. Many wireless activities such as remote access of web, email by means of cell phone, wirelessly handheld PCs and so forth may give the feeling that consistent, unrestricted trade of data is now standard, later on the extraordinary execution attributes of ubiquitous computing will empower an altogether new quality in the trade and handling of information, data and information. With ubiquitous computing, a considerable lot of these procedures will subside out of spotlight, and generally will happen halfway or completely naturally. Be that as it may, this new type of ubiquitous computing won't grow consistently and synchronously in all monetary and social territories. Or maybe, applications will be characterized and actualized at various speeds in various settings.

The growth in the field of ubiquitous computing has been mainly driven by the advancement in Technology. The revolution of smart phones and tablets, advancement in communication networks coupled with the wireless and broadband technologies (Rath et al., 2015), sophistication in the development of sensors, seamless integration through SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) and the emergence of Cloud Computing for the highly available and resource pooling capabilities taking it closer to the ubiquitous computing goals. Figure 1 denotes the associated technologies integrated to greater extent in formation of emerging technology of ubiquitous computing (Rath et al., 2016).

Associated technologies with ubiquitous computing

Figure 1 shows Associated Technologies with Ubiquitous Computing. Ten prominent associated technologies are mobile commerce, advanced sensors, Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud Computing, Big Data Analytics, Service Orientation and Virtualisation. Advanced Architecture and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are functionally embedded in every smart device in ubiquitous computing (Rath et al., 2017). The dispersal and utilization of present-day information and communication technology (ICT) are thought to be the preconditions today for dynamic industrial development and future practicality in worldwide challenge. In the meantime, the procedures of progress activated, empowered and celebrated by ICT are tremendous. The new advances have a consistently extending progressively outstretching influence on the economy, open organization, science, grant and private life. They apply impact on social and individual life. The improvement of versatile communication and Internet innovation amid the previous decade represents the transformative capability of ICT. Computerized data and administrations are going portable and can be called up from any area (Sun et al., 2017). A pattern towards ubiquitous computing is rising that is, the ubiquitous and imperceptible utilize, creation, handling, transmission and capacity of data. Regular articles are getting to be noticeably smart items, which are connected together into systems, respond to their condition, and interface with their clients. This paper explores the focal patterns in ubiquitous computing and thinks about them from specialized, financial and social points of view. It stresses the level of investigation that is situated between singular contextual analyses and the worldwide far reaching picture and that can be mapped onto the application regions of ubiquitous computing. It likewise features the possibilities of ubiquitous computing (Rath et al., 2018).

Ubiquitous computing-based activities have been an abundance of International Companies propelled the world over, two of the standard organizations in the computer industry and e- business today, Microsoft and Intel, have likewise held onto ubicomp as an exploratory heading in their examination labs (Khan et al., 2017). This subject presents most important projects and applications based on this important technology.
