Silicon Valley is home for some of the most distinguished universities involved in wireless research and development. In the first of a planned series, WCA spotlights the wireless happenings at our Bay area universities and colleges.
Carnegie Mellon University's Silicon Valley campus offers graduate degrees through Carnegie Mellon's top-ranked College of Engineering. CMU-SV opened in 2002 and is located at the NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Mountain View. As a rough estimate, upwards of 90 percent of their studies are wireless-related.
Join faculty and researchers at CMU-SV as they present the latest news from next generation wireless research projects underway at the Silicon Valley campus. These exciting projects are in various stages and include multiple opportunities for partnership and collaboration.
CROSSMobile is an open mobile architecture, enabled by controlled cross-layer information exchange between radio, network, and application layers (both on-device and in-cloud), coupled with information-owner-based privacy and security controls.
In the past year, the campus has created, at lab scale, a working networking supporting cellular calls, text messages, data transmission and an application-optimized virtual computing framework.
WEA+ examines the effectiveness of Wireless Emergency Alerts, with sponsorship from the US Department of Homeland Security. Researchers are using CROSSMobile to create a test bed with client-side and server-side filtering to emulate creation and broadcast of messages and to collect data from participants.
• Survivable Social Network (SSN)
SSN is a network of small nodes installed and maintained within communities to re-establish communications after disasters using social networking, wireless networking and smartphones. The SSN includes a Web application in HTML5 for users and a mesh network of access points to create the "survivable" network.
