Tricorder Net: Mobile Browsing of Ubiquitous Sensor Network Information


Tricorder Net is a handheld sensor-network interface inspired by Star Trek's tricorder, a device that provided Science Officer Spock with information about the environment by simply pointing the device and twiddling its knobs. However, unlike Star Trek's tricorder, which had sensors embedded in the handheld device, Tricorder Net's intelligence comes from querying a sensor network distributed throughout the environment.
