Ubiquitous Computing: The Technology for Boundless Surveillance
Full Text(PDF, )  PP.19‐26  
Edem Williams and Bassey Eyo 
Ubiquitous computing, technology, surveillance, mainstream,
Mainstream and advanced surveillance technologies are limited in terms of their reach in monitoring and tracking people and objects despite the dearth of spatial boundaries. This limitation could possibly be eliminated with the advent of ubiquitous computing. The application of ubiquitous computing in surveillance is such as could take advantage of spatial boundlessness to effect a real time boundless surveillance. This paper suggests that the reach of ubiquitous computing in surveillance cannot be hindered except humans step in to define its delimiters of operation.
