Abstract
Palpable computing is a new research topic that has been developed to solve some of the issues found with the original way of looking at pervasive computing. The research into this topic has, among other things, resulted in a middleware called PalCom. The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate how well PalCom fits as an IoT platform by comparing it to an existing system made with PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor), created by Combain AB. The comparison was done by evaluating different scenarios using both PHP and PalCom. The outcome from the evaluations show that the difference between PalCom and PHP, measured in development effort, does not differ significantly when building a simple system. However there is a...

The outcome from the evaluations show that the difference between PalCom and PHP, measured in development effort, does not differ significantly when building a simple system. However there is a difference between the two systems when it comes to more advanced features such as updating and adding logic dynamically to devices where PalCom excels. (Less)
