|Internet and Mobile Computing Laboratory|
The Internet and Mobile Computing Lab focuses on the design and analysis of architectures, protocols, and algorithms for network communications and computing, addressing such issues as performance, scalability, reliability, security, quality of service, and interoperability. Middleware and application development are also important components of the Lab's research.
Highlights of Achievements
- We have developed a fully featured heterogeneous wireless network test-bed integrating a 802.11-based wireless mesh network, a 3G network, and WLAN. With a dual-mode mobile client module that we developed, our system provides the support of fast seamless handoff. We are among the few research groups in the world capable of developing such a real-world test-bed (the others are UCLA, UC Berkeley, Cambridge, MIT, John Hopkins, SUNY- Stony Brook, UCSB, Bell Lab, and Microsoft Research).
- We have been investigating various issues in designing energy-efficient protocols and algorithms for operations in WSN, and studying the problems of deployment, data aggregation, and cooperative sensing. We have built a WSN test-bed to support our research and development activities. We have several on-going practical projects, such as an intelligent transportation system and structure health monitoring system. To support the development of WSN applications, we have been developing a middleware based on the Publish/Subscribe approach.
