Welcome to the Ambient Computational Environments (ACE) Homepage.
The ACE project involves the design and implementation of an environment where
embedded resources are at our finger tips. Ambient Computational Environment
represents a computer architecture in which computational resources, sensors,
and actuators, in their widest sense, are available in our offices, conference
rooms, hallways, and other places. Users must be able to control
, with authorization, these computational resources within their proximate area,
and access computational services that are long-lived and extremely robust. These
users must also be able to interact in multiple ways with ACEs. We are developing
prototype Ambient Computational Environments with these features, and are
exploring the related architectural and deployment issues.
This project is sponsored by
National Science Foundation,
Defense Advanced Research Project Agency,
University of Kansas,
and the prototype is currently being developed here at
