PDAs as Remote Interactive Devices Using Native Code

Berg, Henry (1999) PDAs as Remote Interactive Devices Using Native Code. Technical Report. Stanford InfoLab.




In order to study the effectiveness of PDA-native applications and interactive devices in a multi-device networked environment, we developed two applications. A remote text-entry and text display application was developed first. Once the infrastructure was in place, we went on to develop a remote control application for LCD projectors. In order to accommodate low-latency operations, we interfaced Palm III devices to a Linux server using a direct serial connection. Palm-specific code was written in C++ using Metrowerks CodeWarrior for execution under PalmOS 3.0. For the server, standard gcc C++ was used on a PC running Red Hat Linux 5.2.
