This work presents a survey of ubiquitous computing research which is the emerging domain that implements communication technologies into day-to-day life activities. This research paper provides a classification of the research areas on the ubiquitous computing paradigm. In this paper, we present common architecture principles of ubiquitous systems and analyze important aspects in context-aware ubiquitous systems. In addition, this research work presents a novel architecture of ubiquitous computing system and a survey of sensors needed for applications in ubiquitous computing. The goals of this research work are three-fold: i) serve as a guideline for researchers who are new to ubiquitous computing and want to contribute to this research area, ii) provide a novel system architecture for ubiquitous computing system, and iii) provides further research directions required into quality-of-service assurance of ubiquitous computing.
