MetroSense Project

In the MetroSense Project project we are investigating an opportunistic sensor networking paradigm to provide both sensing coverage of people and their surroundings. By leveraging the uncontrolled mobility of people and vehicles, we can provide coverage in time over a wide area with a relatively sparse deployment of sensors. We have designed the MetroSense Architecture to symbiotically utilize existing networking infrastructure, exploit resource asymmetry, and focus on localized interaction to contain the complexity inherent in a mobile network. To evaluate MetroSense we are building a large-scale campus-area sensor network based on mobile sensors embedded in mobile phones and leveraging extant static and mobile communications and sensing infrastructure. Our goal is enabling people-centric applications based on secure, scalable sensing and fusion.

The Armstrong Project

In The Armstong Project, we are developing new technologies to tackle the fundamental challenges of radio networking in low power, low bandwidth wireless sensor networks. We have developed a framework of medium access control algorithms aimed at minimizing packet loss probability by smart scheduling that takes radio device characteristics into account, and by learning the correlation between locally sensed channel conditions at the transmitter and successful reception at the receiver. We have also developed a congestion control framework including a set of control algorithms comprising an open-loop mechanism based on locally sensed channel load and a closed-loop mechanism for rate-limiting data sources, along with an on-demand congestion mitigating overlay service aimed at increasing application fidelity in resource-heterogeneous sensor networks.
