Project: DrIVE Associated Team
Enabling ITS through programmable networks
This INRIA – UC Santa Cruz Team investigates a number of research challenges raised by message delivery in environments consisting of heterogeneous networks that may be subject to episodic connectivity.
Pressure injuries are localized damage to the skin and/or underlying tissue that usually occur
over a bony prominence. Pressure injuries most commonly develop in individuals who have
low-mobility, such as those who are bedridden or confined to a wheelchair and consequently are
attributed to some combination of pressure, friction, shear force, temperature, humidity, and
restriction of blood flow and are more prevalent in patients with
chronic health problems.
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.
Socially- and Geographically-Aware Modeling Framework for User Mobility in Wireless Networks
One of the project’s main goal 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. Another important deliverable of our work is a suite of tools that implement the proposed models and that can be used by other researchers and practitioners in the evaluation of mobile systems and protocols.
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.
Bus Tracking System Project
BTS is a grad student project developed by i-NRG and other students to provide real-time tracking of the campus shuttles.
