Description & Coverage
Description:

Ambient Intelligence (AmI) is a multidisciplinary approach aimed at enriching physical environments with a network of distributed devices, such as sensors, actuators, and computational resources, in order to support humans in achieving their everyday activities.

Handbook of Research on Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments: Trends and Perspectives covers the cutting-edge aspects of AMI applications, specifically those involving the effective design, realization, and implementation of a comprehensive AmI application. This pertinent publication targets researchers and practitioners in Ambient Intelligence, as well as those in ubiquitous and pervasive computing, artificial intelligence, sensor networks, knowledge representation, automated reasoning and learning, system and software engineering, and man-machine interfaces.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Activity Recognition
  • Ambient Intelligence
  • Architectural Aspects and Infrastructure
  • Context awareness
  • Human Aspects
  • Knowledge Representation
  • Reasoning
  • Sensible Interaction
  • Sensing
  • Smart Environments
Reviews & Statements

This book [...] includes the important and futuristic topics for realizing the intelligent systems embedded in the human society, namely Ambient Intelligence. The concept of Ambient Intelligence leads our society to the next stage where we, human[s], enhance our ability beyond time and space.

– Hiroshi Ishiguro, Osaka University, Japan

Information technologies, robotics, computer science, and electrical engineering are among the perspectives brought to bear on efforts to enrich physical environments with a network of distributed devices such as sensors, actuators, and computational resources to help humans achieve their everyday goals.

Editor/Author Biographies
Nak-Young Chong received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. from Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea in 1987, 1989, and 1994, respectively. From 1994-98, he was a senior researcher at Daewoo Heavy Industries. After Daewoo, he spent 1 year at KIST. From 1998-2007, he was on the research staff of AIST. In 2003, he joined the JAIST faculty as Associate Professor of Information Science. Dr. Chong serves as Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Robotics, and International Journal of Assistive Robotics and Systems. He will serve as Program Chair/Co-Chair for the ICAM 2010, IEEE-ROMAN 2011, and IEEE-CASE 2012. He served as Co-Chair of the IEEE RAS Technical Committee on Networked Robots in 2004-06, and Fujitsu Scientific Systems WGs in 2004-08. He was a visiting scholar at AIST in 1995-96, Northwestern University in 2001 and Georgia Tech in 2008-09. He is a director of KROS, and a member of IEEE, RSJ, and SICE.
Fulvio Mastrogiovanni’s research activities expand in various branches of Robotics, specifically Humanoid Robotics, Ambient Intelligence, and Distributed Robotics. Fulvio received his Master degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Genova in 2003, with a Thesis about task planning in Distributed service Robotics. In 2008, he received the Ph.D. degree in Robotics from the University of Genoa, with the Dissertation “Context Awareness: Another Step Towards Ubiquitous Robotics”. Currently, Fulvio is interested in large scale tactile sensing for Humanoids, cognitive representation mechanisms, and neural-based planning and control. Fulvio received the Best Paper Awards at DARS 2008 and at IEEE RO-MAN 2010.
