An interaction based human contact study experiment has been conducted on 25 undergraduate students at USC, each carrying a wireless device (Tmote) for a week duration. Each mote transmits contact packets every 0.1 second to advertise its presence and a node receiving the packets will record the contact information. Data is processed off-line and a contact graph has been generated based on the strength of pairwise contact in order to visualize the grouping effect. All groups are identified and… CONTINUE READING
