The SmartCampus initiative aims to turn an urban university campus into a living laboratory for location aware community system services. To lay a foundation for this effort, the SmartCampus test-bed is being created through provisioning to 500+ students with personal computing devices (smart phones and tablet PCs), which will run a suite of applications that link “people-to-peopleto-place”, or P3-systems.
