Distributed Mobile Sensing: The project aims at field driven sensing using distributed mobile services. Mobile sensors may be part of ordinary cellphones or may be implemented in vehicular network. Based on the underlying physics of the field (e.g. traffics, air pollution, temperature and etc.) needed to be sensed, an appropriate model is designed. On one hand, gathering all the sensed data and doing all the compression and learning at the server end is undesirable. On the other hand, we also don't want to create overheads by forcing nodes to communicate with each other. Some coding and learning models are being developed based on these requirements. The developed model chooses a strategy somewhere in the middle of the spectrum that spans from selective sensing to compressed sensing.
Influence Maximization in Intermittently Connected Mobile Networks: A connected dynamic network which is not always connected (Such as: Vehicular and social networks) can be modelled with a graph of certain types. Knowing that we can encourage node entities to catalyze spread of certain adds, information or data. We proved that the best choose of these helpers is an NPC problem and the best yet achievable polynomial time helper selection algorithm is devised during the course of the project.
Urban Traffic Modeling: Modeling the road network with a graph, the goal is to find the best fitted model learning from the sensed data that could help us with traffic planning, prediction of critical events, OD estimation and etc.
Data Dissemination Control in Dynamic Networks: In a network with moving nodes and intermittent connections, we focus on how to allocate helpers to steer propagation direction and target specific areas in presence of competing parties. A game formulation of the problem is developed alongside with a discrete Markov decision process representation.
