Opportunistic Wireless Communication
Corey Baker, Ph.D.,
Our research looks at how to apply delay tolerant networks (DTNs), mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs), and software defined networks (SDNs) to empower device-to-device (D2D) social networks for crowd sourcing information. Leveraging D2D communication provides complementary solutions to traditional networks, which are typically dependent upon centralized infrastructures such as the Internet. The goal of our research is to make data accessible in the midst of intermittent and poor connectivity while minimizing delay.
