As mobility became the norm rather than the exception, location-based services are playing more of a key role in assisting mobile users. In this paper, we address the challenges of providing location-based services to users in areas of sudden population increases, such as stadiums and traffic jams. A sudden increase in the number of mobile users leads to an(More)
Network transmission is liable to errors and data loss. In movie transmission, packets of video frames are subject to loss or even explicit elimination for many reasons including congestion handling and the achievement of higher compression. Not only does the loss of video frames cause significant reduction in video quality, but it could also cause a loss(More)
Various emerging context aware social-based applications and services assume constant non-disruptive connectivity. Mobile advertisers in such environments want to reach potentially interested users in a given proximity and within a specified short-duration, whether these users are connected to the network or not. While opportunistic forwarding algorithms(More)
In movie transmission, video frames are subject to loss due to noise and/or congestion. The loss of video frames could cause a loss of synchronization between the audio and video streams. If not corrected, this cumulative loss can seriously degrade the motion picture’s quality beyond viewers’ tolerance. In this paper, we initially study and classify the(More)
In this article, a set of Java classes and description styles are proposed to allow the use of the language to specify and simulate RTL descriptions. Components are made reactive to signals using Java observability. A clock is modeled using the multithreaded features of Java. The proposed classes and styles, named RTLJava, implement a cycle-based simulator(More)
Interest and social-awareness can be valuable determinants in decisions related to content delivery in mobile environments. Under certain conditions, we can deliver content with less cost and better delivery ratios, while only involving users that are interested in the type of content being delivered. However, the depletion of valuable power resources poses(More)
Communication in mobile opportunistic networks is primarily achieved through a variety of store-carry-and-forward techniques, where node mobility is exploited for end-to-end data delivery. The main routing challenges these networks face is determining when to forward a message and which nodes to forward it to, ultimately resulting in varying delay and cost(More)
Web access, especially through search, is by far one of the most popular operations performed on mobile devices. It is very interesting how the Mobile and Social worlds have significantly converged in many interesting ways, the least of which is the ability to simply access social networks on the move. However, much literature indicates how search results,(More)
