  • 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.

  • PIMAP: Pressure Injury Monitoring And Prevention

    Overview 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 […]

  • 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 […]
