Vehicular sensor networks are emerging as a new network paradigm of primary relevance, especially for proactively gathering monitoring information in urban environments. Vehicles typically have no strict constraints on processing power and storage capabilities. They can sense events (e.g., imaging from streets), process sensed data (e.g., recognizing(More)
The mobility model is one of the most important factors in the performance evaluation of a mobile ad hoc network (MANET). Traditionally, the random waypoint mobility model has been used to model the node mobility, where the movement of one node is modeled as independent from all others. However, in reality, especially in large scale military scenarios,(More)
In this paper we study the use of vehicles as sensors in a "vehicular sensor network" a new network paradigm that is critical for gathering valuable information in urban environments. In a vehicular sensor network, each vehicle is responsible for sensing one or more events, routing messages to other vehicles or infostations and processing sensed data. There(More)
Nowadays, inter-domain routing for MANETs draws increasing attention because of military and vehicular applications. The challenges in wireless, mobile inter-domain routing include dynamic network topology, intermittent connectivity, and routing protocol heterogeneity. The existing Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the de facto inter-domain routing protocol(More)
Vehicular sensor networks are emerging as a new network paradigm of primary relevance, especially for proactively gathering monitoring information in urban environments (proactive urban monitoring). Each vehicle, which typically has no strict constraints on processing power and storage capabilities, can sense one or more events (e.g., imaging from streets(More)
Advertisements, are the most important source of revenue for some of the biggest Internet-based companies. With vehicular networks poised to become part of the Internet in the near future, this new “edge” of the Internet represents a new frontier that companies will be striving to reach. In this paper we investigate the feasibility of targeted dissemination(More)
Mobile cloud computing (MCC) has recently been drawing increased attention in academia as well as industry. Content retrieval is a critical service, for many mobile cloud applications and in turns relies on other resources and tools, e.g., internal storage, content searching and sharing, etc. Previous studies have shown that conventional ICN interest query(More)
Inter-domain routing for MANETs (Mobile Ad Hoc Networks) draws increasing attention because of military and vehicular applications. The existing Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the de facto inter-domain routing protocol for the Internet. But BGP is not applicable to MANETs because the BGP design is based on a static Internet which does not support dynamic(More)
— In Geographic Routing protocols (e.g. GPSR), a node makes packet forwarding decisions based on the coordinates of its neighbors and the packet’s destination. Geo-routing uses greedy forwarding as a default; if this fails (e.g. the packet is trapped in a dead end caused by holes and/or obstacles), a recovery scheme based on perimeter routing is invoked.(More)
