Ubiquitous computing systems often involve infrastructure placed either on the body or in the environment. We've developed a combined wearable and environmental infrastructure for CareLog, a prototype system for capturing and annotating the behavior of children with autism. The infrastructure features a wearable Personal Server, which stores each child's information, and environmental buffers, in this case Internet-isolated cameras that store audio and video streams for short intervals before removing them. CareLog demonstrates an interesting compromise between environmental and wearable infrastructures and takes advantages of some of the best attributes of each.
