This article introduces the new component of Mobile Millennium dedicated to arterial traffic. Mobile Millennium is a pilot system for collecting, processing and broadcasting real-time traffic conditions through the use of GPS equipped smartphones. Two algorithms that use data from GPS equipped smartphones to estimate arterial traffic conditions are(More)
For real-time video broadcast where multiple users are interested in the same content, mobile-to-mobile cooperation can be utilized to improve delivery efficiency and reduce network utilization. Under such cooperation, however, real-time video transmission requires end-to-end delay bounds. Due to the inherently stochastic nature of wireless fading channels,(More)
Real-time video demands quality-of-service (QoS) guarantees such as delay bounds for end-user satisfaction. Furthermore, the tolerable delay varies depending on the use case such as live streaming or two-way video conferencing. Due to the inherently stochastic nature of wireless fading channels, deterministic delay bounds are difficult to guarantee.(More)
Providing perceptual quality guarantees for video transmission over wireless channels is important for the enduser experience. The paper proposes an algorithm for perceptual quality optimization of scalable H.264 video with temporal and quality scalability. The algorithm supports adaptive unequal error protection so that different video layers are protected(More)
Video streaming over wireless networks can achieve large quality and capacity gains from transmission techniques that are aware of the video content. This paper proposes modifying conventional multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems to realize these gains by introducing video-aware PHY layer decisions. Specifically, a new PHY layer packet(More)
The structured nature of video data motivates introducing video-aware decisions that make use of this structure for improved video transmission over wireless networks. In this paper, we introduce an architecture for real-time video transmission over multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless communication systems using loss visibility side information.(More)
Video packet losses affect perceived video quality non-uniformly due to several factors related to video encoding such as inter-frame coding and motion compensation as well as due to psycho-visual perception of natural scenes with unequal motion. This motivates protecting video packets unequally based on their loss visibility. This paper proposes an(More)
