    Technical progress in electronics allows the transformation of visions of pervasive computing into real world options. This perspective has raised deep concerns about the survival of privacy, as central building blocks of pervasive computing are in direct conflict with the fundaments of privacy protection. Considerable efforts have been undertaken to cope with these concerns with only limited succ... View full abstract»

    Based on the results of a technology assessment study we show that pervasive computing could amplify already existing problems related to the environment, human health, and society. Power consumption for digital networks, e-waste streams, and exposure to nonionizing radiation may all increase. Furthermore, social sustainability could be threatened by the technology if it is applied in a way that r... View full abstract»

    Pervasive computing exists in the user's environment, the technology is sustainable if it is invisible to the user and does not intrude the user's consciousness. This requires that functioning of the multitude of devices in the environment be oblivious to the user. Therefore, the system has to be resilient to various kinds of faults and should be able to function despite faults. In addition, perva... View full abstract»

    Sustainability is a matter for all stakeholders: technologists and environmentalists, but also users and shareholders. Thanks to computational trust engines, it is possible to: 1) foster collaboration between all these stakeholders and allow them to collaborate together in a sound and trustworthy manner, and 2) promote technologies that are more sustainable by assessing and selecting them thanks t...

    RFID technology is one of the forerunners of pervasive computing, and as such is expected to play an important role in many applications of daily life, especially in the form of smart labels. However, market investigations and a material analysis of a smart label shows that the use of smart labels does not considerably affect the recycling or disposal of packaging materials, if precautionary measu...
