    The Moby Dick project focuses on developing theories, architectures and applications for a new generation of hand-held computers. The combination of an intelligent information system and a location system enables many new types of applications, such as admission control, digital chequebook, paging, and an automatic diary that keeps track of where you were and with whom. The design challenges lie primarily in the creation of a single architecture that allows the integration of security functions, externally offered services, personality, and communication. In the architecture, Quality of Service (QoS) is no longer a networking issue alone, but a framework to model integration and integrated management of all the system services and applications in the Pocket Companion.
