Face recognition applications for airport security and surveillance can benefit from the collaborative coupling of mobile and cloud computing as they become widely available today. This paper discusses our work with the design and implementation of face recognition applications using our mobile-cloudlet-cloud architecture named MOCHA and its initial(More)
Overlay networks among cooperating hosts have recently emerged as a viable solution to several challenging problems, including multicasting, routing, content distribution, and peer-to-peer services. Application-level overlays, however, incur a performance penalty over router-level solutions. This paper quantifies and explains this performance penalty for(More)
We investigate a heuristic application-level (overlay) multicast approach, which we refer to as Topology Aware Grouping (TAG). TAG exploits underlying network topology data to construct overlay multicast networks. Specifically, TAG uses the overlap among routes from the source to group members to construct an efficient overlay network in a distributed,(More)
With the recent advances in cloud computing and the capabilities of mobile devices, the state-of-the-art of mobile computing is at an inflection point, where compute-intensive applications can now run on today’s mobile devices with limited computational capabilities. This is achieved by using the communications capabilities of mobile devices to establish(More)

A multitude of overlay network designs for resilient routing, multicasting, quality of service, content distribution, storage, and object location have been recently proposed. Overlay networks offer several attractive features, including ease of deployment, flexibility, adaptivity, and an infrastructure for collaboration among hosts. In this paper, we(More)
In this demo, we present an infrastructure for real-time, crowd sourced heartbeat detection designed for use during a musical performance. Specially designed pulse sensors are used in conjunction with mobile devices to measure, transmit, and synchronize users' individual and collective heartbeat data with procedurally generated visuals as they listen to a(More)
ODMRP (On-Demand Multicast Routing Protocol) [5] [7] [1] is a popular multicast protocol for wireless ad hoc networks. The strengths of ODMRP are simplicity, high packet delivery ratio, and non-dependency on a specific unicast protocol. ODMRP floods a route request over the entire network to select a set of forwarding nodes for packet delivery. However, a(More)
