—Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs) have been mainly motivated for safety applications, but non-safety applications can also be very helpful to impulse vehicular networks. Among non-safety applications, video streaming services can provide attractive features to many applications and can attract a great number of users. However, VANETs high mobility(More)
Mobile devices are often presented with multiple connectivity options usually making a selection either randomly or based on load/wireless conditions metrics, as is the case of current offloading schemes. In this paper we claim that link-layer connectivity can be associated with information-availability and in this respect connectivity decisions should be(More)
PURPOSE To study the nature and frequency of bacterial contamination during cataract surgery. METHODS The preoperative smears from the conjunctiva and anterior chamber (AC) fluid aspirates during extra-capsular cataract surgery (ECCE) with posterior chamber intraocular lens (PCIOL) implantation in 40 eyes were analysed for aerobic and anaerobic bacteria.(More)
The vast majority of mobile data transfers today follow the traditional client-server model. Although in the fixed network P2P approaches have been exploited and shown to be very efficient, in the mobile domain there has been limited attempt to leverage on P2P (D2D) for large-scale content distribution (i.e., not DTN-like, point-to-point message transfers).(More)
The advent and wide adoption of smartphones in the second half of '00s has completely changed our everyday mobile computing experience. Tens of applications are being introduced every day in the application markets. Given the technology progress and the fact that mobile devices are becoming strong computing devices, mobile <i>applications</i> are expected(More)
Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) are emerging as a novel paradigm for safety services, supporting real-time applications (e.g., video-streaming, Internet browsing, online gaming, etc.). However, maintaining ubiquitous connectivity remains a challenge due to both high vehicle speed, and non-homogeneous nature of the network access infrastructure. Getting(More)
