ANS: Autonomic Networked System Management Tool for Ubicomp in the Home

The ANS (Autonomic Networked System) is a ubiquitous computing managementtool which is designed to mimic the ANS (Autonomic Nervous System) of living creatures. The organic ANS is the part of the nervous system controlling many organs and muscles within thebody. It is flexible, constantly in operation and that it happens in the background without our interference or knowledge of its mechanism. This metaphore is being adapted to support ubiquitous computing environments, especially in the application of the intelligent home and medical applications where constant technical supportis impossible. Such a system will provide the intelligence to optimise its operation through constant monitoring and tuning to achieve its goal.
