Abstract

EZCab is a proof-of-concept ubiquitous computing application that allows people to book nearby cabs using their cell phones or PDAs equipped with short-range wireless network interfaces. EZCab discovers and books free cabs using mobile ad hoc networks of vehicles. We have implemented an EZCab prototype on top of Smart Messages, a middleware architecture based on execution migration, which we had developed to provide a common execution environment for outdoor ubiquitous computing applications. The experimental and simulation results have demonstrated the feasibility of EZCab.
