SenseNet Project Synopsis

As Internet-of-Things, mobile health, autonomous vehicles, cyber-physical systems, virtual reality, and smart environments proliferate, wireless spectrum demand continues to grow at a significant rate. This project, called SenseNet, investigates new ways of managing wireless networks through the advanced integration of emerging trends in software-driven networking, ubiquitous computing deployments, and sensor-driven analysis. SenseNet's mission is to advance prosperity by enabling wireless industries to more efficiently and flexibly control their networks.

Two major thrusts will be studied to build an architecture that enables practical sensor-based wireless network management. The first thrust aims to utilize sensor data to more effectively and flexibly manage the wireless network. The first thrust will intelligently schedule traffic to specified end-devices via a programmable framework. The second major thrust makes analyzing sensory data at the network edge more efficient.
