    This instalment looks at two novel applications for m-health and free messaging. The first application can display real-time ECG tracings-in particular, it can monitor clinical data or alarms from standard and proprietary protocols. The second application is based on the missed-call-duration interpretation project. It presents a time-sliced messaging communication protocol that's useful for transm... View full abstract»

    The workshop exposed the potential of smart phones to act as context-awareness platforms. From the research community viewpoint, however, it was encouraging to see strong industrial interest in supporting and exploiting context awareness, which, not so long ago, was more of a lab curiosity than consumer technology. The Qualcomm Context Awareness Symposium (QCAS) focused on understanding how future... View full abstract»
