Description: The research paper Technical Presentation on Mobile Computing Framework talks about Mobile Computing Network. It is suggested in the research paper that wireless and mobile computing are two different things altogether. Wireless computing is the transmission of information which enables mobile computing.
What happens in mobile computing:
Geo coding: This is a task of processing textual address to add a positional co-ordinate to each address. These co-ordinate are then indexed to enable the address to be searched geographically in ways such as “find me my nearest”.
Latitude: the first component of a spherical cell based system used to record positions on the earth‘s surface. Latitude which gives the location of a place north or south of the equator is expressed by angular measurement ranging from 0 at the equator to 90 at the pole.
Longitude: latitude, the location of a place east or west of a north south line called the prime meridian, is measured in angles ranging from 0 at the prime meridian to 180 at the International Date Line. The international date line passes through Landon ’s Greenwich observatory, UK.
Routing and driving directions: it is a interaction between the users location and a planned destination. Routes can be calculated and displayed on the map and driving directions can be provided according to shortest distance or the fastest route.
Rendering: this is a production of maps for display onto the screen of the device. Rendering images are typically personalized according to the specific LBS request. The global positioning system is a network is a network of 24 Navstar satellites orbiting earth at 11000 miles. Dod has established it at the cost of about US $ 13 billion, access to GPS to all users including those in other countries. GPS provides specially coded satellite signals that can be processed by GPS receiver. Basically GPS works by using four GPS satellite signals to compute positions in three dimensions In the receiver clock. Operation control system has the responsibility for maintaining the satellite and its proper positions.
Conclusion: The research paper concludes by specifying all the details.
