This chapter describes example use cases for ubiquitous computing technology in a corporate environment that have been evaluated as prototypes under realistic conditions. The main example reduces risk in the handling of hazardous substances by detecting potentially dangerous storage situations and raising alarms if certain rules are violated. We specify the requirements, implementation decisions, and lessons learned from evaluation. It is shown that ubiquitous computing in a shop floor, warehouse, or retail environment can drastically improve real-world business processes, making them safer and more efficient.
