This is a reference book for an important and emerging field of research. Unlike so many books that are concerned with “ambient intelligence” and “smart environments” it sets out to provide the reader with a full and current coverage of the fields. This includes an introduction to the main concepts, theories, methodologies, trends as well as more detailed discussions. It also includes relevant applications in the fields. It is of course both a handbook and a reference book to areas that are gaining increasing importance in developments of new and exciting systems.
