NSTA – Progress

Woo Progress!

NSTA has progressed to a fully fledged prototype. It now outputs the node position and the connections in the logical graph. Shall do some message browsing and a quick propogation algorithm and release it for you viewing displeasure!

Academic Updates

Francois, Hugo and myself have almost finished writing the paper summing up our work on PAMPA for the last 2 years. We shall be submitting to the International Workshop on Middleware for Pervasive, Mobile and Embedded Computing, at Middleware 2009 in Illinois, USA.

I have also been working on making my NS-2 trace anaylser package ready to be released and making a small example program to use. Hopefully shall be released soon. Shall open it and SourceForge it once it is ready.

Cheers all!

Summer, Lisbon and Research

Well the talk in Glasgow went great, and I managed to receive a grant to visit the university of lisbon for a week in the summer to continue my research.

I managed to find some interesting results and managed to create a small java application to view my results visually.

It came out quite nice, and as such I have plenty of interesting avenues of new research for next year, including a new radio propagation method that takes into account buildings. It would help urban scenarios imensely.

MiNeMa

Well I’ve just been told I have to give a 15 min presentation on my research at this years MiNeMa workshop in Glasgow. Thats fine but as I’m only in my second year … I think my hair may fall out.

I will be giving a presentation on a modified broadcast algorithm for use in Mobile Adhoc Networks.

Hope every one enjoys it!

Also, John Hardy, Steve Wattam and myself quickly prototyped a Trilateration program for use with bluetooth devices. If any one is interested in the code, or on a more robust implementation, please contact me.
