A Palm device is a preeminent example of "ubiquitous computing". It is a special-purpose device, optimized for ubiquity rather than general computing, and designed around size, price, and power constraints. AvantGo is a novel compound application made up of a web robot and HTML processing engine and a custom document viewer.
The AvantGo viewer is available for WinCE and Palm devices. The robot/processing engine can reside on an intranet server (NT), AvantGo also maintains a publicly accessible robot.
This presentation shows how both of these devices can be combined with a traditional web-based personal document archive in novel and useful ways.
First presented in the American Medical Informatics Association Fall Meeting, Nov. 11, 1998, Family Practice/Primary Care Track. Revised and updated March 15, 2000 for the Health Informatics division of the University of Minnesota.
