Ubiquitous computing paradigm involves handling physical spaces having abundance of computing devices, with variety of resources, capabilities, services and policies. The physical and logical work environment created with ubiquitous computing characteristics can be termed as smart space. It will assist user in performing his tasks without bothering about intricacies of handling or configuring the devices and applications programs. Such tasks of configuring are handled unobtrusively by the smart space itself. Most of the design efforts for smart space have been centred on development of new middleware for creation of the ubiquitous environment. This paper presents an operating system based design of a software infrastructure for a campus-wide smart space. A mapping of the proposed design to a use-case scenario is also presented.
