Current Projects

  • Self organized networks like mobile ad hoc networks and sensor networks enable pervasive computing applications to observe and monitor the physical world. Queries present an application-friendly abstraction to gather information from these emerging opportunistic networks. However, these networks are inherently dynamic because of changes induced by mobility and the unpredictable lifetime inherent to battery operated devices. Consequently, the state of the environment changes during the execution of a query.

Recent Projects

  • EgoSpaces facilitates rapid development of sophisticated context-aware applications by allowing applications to define contexts that reflect diverse concurrent and changing needs and encompass data from multiple sources. EgoSpaces manages this information for the application, relieving the developer from having to handle network connections and disconnections common in mobile environments.
