  • Socially- and Geographically-Aware Modeling Framework for User Mobility in Wireless Networks

    The "Socially- and Geographically-Aware Modeling Framework for User Mobility in Wireless Networks" is a project sponsored by the NSF under the NeTS Program. One of its main goals is to develop novel, socially-inspired human mobility models that also account for geographic diversity of the region of interest. The proposed models consider features observed in real human networks such as differential popularity, transitivity and clustering as well as geographical features and preferences from users.

  • COMMUNITY

    Welcome to COMMUNITY, an associated research team between INRIA and UC Santa Cruz. COMMUNITY has been sponsored by grants from INRIA and the NSF.

  • BSDP: Bed Sore Detection and Prevention

    Overview We are working with UCSF to create a sensor network that monitors a patient to determine when a bed sore will form and avoid the formation. SIP 2016 We are working with the Science Internship Program here at UCSC to introduce research to high school interns. For the Summer of 2016 we had two […]

  • Mobility Modeling in Wireless Networks

    In this project we study mobile wireless networks by looking at mobility management and analysis of human mobility, focusing on the main goal of understanding human mobility and applying our findings on developing new realistic mobility models for simulations. In our work, we started by analyzing Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) and GPS traces that […]

  • TerrainLOS

    TerrainLOS is a propagation model (a propagation model is an algorithm that simulates real world wireless communication) that uses terrain to determine the success of a transmission. Propagation models tend to be overly simple (If you are within 100m of my location we can communicate) or overly complex (Calculate every reflection, refraction, and diffraction to […]
