The SEI's research in pervasive mobile computing focuses on identifying architectures that provide flexible capability and rapid, simple deployment of capability to new generations of handheld devices, such as smartphones and wearable devices, and nearby infrastructure. The SEI is investigating tactical mobile architectures and software engineering methods and practices that can deliver the required capabilities and meet quality expectations in the dynamic and often hostile "last-mile" environment in which soldiers and first responders work.
Research projects address such critical problems as how smartphones and similar devices can best interact with infrastructure to provide optimal capability and resource conservation, how to deliver information and avoid information overload, and how to rapidly adapt smartphone apps and verify their security characteristics.
