Mobile and pervasive computing at the University of Florida means exciting research, cutting-edge technology innovation, and solid educational training. Professor Sumi Helal is directing several research projects in the areas of Smart Spaces (new technological enablers, architectures, ecosystem, intelligent interactions, and real world deployments), Internet of Things (scalable cloud-sensor architectures for smart cities, IoT programmability and city-scale IoT optimizations), and Assistive Technology (successful aging, affective and persuasive interactions, context-driven simulation, and assistive technology for the blind and hearing impaired).

Students interested in joining the Mobile and Pervasive Computing Lab should send a 2 page research statement describing what they aspire to work on and achieve.
