Project 1: Localization through Wi-Fi and
Wireless Camera
WIFI localization:
Wireless Camera:
Goal: Understand RF based localization techniques, and
how to enhance localization through wireless video
streaming and processing
Project 2: Power-efficient MAC layer protocol
for Wireless Cooperative Relay Networks;
Wireless Cooperative
Conventional research mainly focused on relatively simple cooperative relay topologies or
on the cooperation schemes under the existing infrastructure network
Achieving cooperative diversity and multiplexing gain across multiple coexisting multi-hop
cooperation links at Physical Layer
Mobile users serve as both service providers and consumers,
The cooperation provided by mobile users does not have to rely heavily on the
infrastructure networks
distributed medium access control and routing protocol
Network simulation
Goal: NS2 or Qualnet
Project 3: Cross-layer Design and Optimization with
QoS Provisioning for Cooperative Wireless Networking
The user cooperations at different protocol layers have
diverse features and challenges, which motivate crosslayer design to develop optimized cooperation schemes.
