Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel concept called "ubiquitous searching", which allows people to organize and search the desired information about the objects in the physical world, navigating from one object to others through their contextual links, just like what we do in the web searching. How to realize such an exciting idea poses many challenges, and a new approach is needed to provide scalable system abstractions and infrastructures. We identify the design principles and propose the framework toward ubiquitous search. The system architecture and the key algorithms for the proposed framework are developed. We also describe a proof-of-concept prototype and a simulation study used to experiment with our framework and algorithms.
