    • ReBUS: Access Networks on Board University Buses
      In this talk, we will share our experience with the implementation of ReBUS, a pilot project on DTN and vehicular networks. The goal of ReBUS is to develop a new service in order to provide mobile Internet access for institutions served by RNP (National Education and Research Network), in particular universities.
      Ubiquitous network access and mobility evolved from research subjects to development projects thanks to the growth of new wireless technologies, especially the IEEE 802.11 protocol family. Within ReBUS, we build a prototype where users access the Internet by using intermittently connected vehicular networks. Our prototype uses current DTN implementations and off-the-shelf equipment. Users with mobile phones and laptops access the DTN inside buses, which serve as data mules for students and professors in university campuses.

Friday 30th September

  • 9.00 - 10.00 Invited speaker: Pr Antônio Loureiro
    • Localization and Tracking in Extreme Communications: Challenges and Opportunities
      In any kind of network, data communication is a fundamental issue and typically is the first problem to be solved. In an extreme communication scenario, another fundamental issue is how to localize and track entities (users, devices, etc) so they can communicate among themselves. In this talk, we'll discuss the problems of localization and tracking in extreme communications, how they are related to each other, their importance for other network services, and present some of the main challenges and opportunities in this area.
