Ubiquitous Computing, Context-Awareness

eyeJOT is metaphor for how we might want a birds eye view or overview of the activities on and off the university campus, it is an interactive community bulletin system based on ubiquitous computing technologies.
Users (students, faculty, campus guests and administration members) can access information about campus news, activities and a semester schedule. eyeJOT uses a combination of new technology as Bluetooth and SMS together with a new navigation metaphor combine distance and time. Integrating the ubiquitous functionality of eyeJOT can be competitive factor for the future university, company and organization. eyeJOT is relaying on multiple layers. These layers are communicated to each other by special interfaces. The idea of having layers is to isolate the hardware, application layer “eyeJOT engine” and the graphical design to allow for more flexibility. These layers including Bluetooth layer supported by eyeJOT framework layer based on Microsoft.NET technology. The web interface layer based on PhP and MySQL technology provides flexible communicate with eyeJOT database and web interface. The graphical interface layers generating dynamic graphics based on the internal event listener.
