A Survey on Vehicular Social Networks

This article surveys recent literature on Vehicular Social Networks that are a particular class of vehicular ad hoc networks, characterized by social aspects and features. Starting from this pillar, we investigate perspectives of next generation vehicles under the assumption of social networking for vehicular applications (i.e., safety and entertainment applications). This paper plays a role as a starting point about socially-inspired vehicles, and main […]

Two-level mapping to mitigate congestion in machine to machine (M2M) cloud

This work focuses on mitigation of the network congestion in a Machine to Machine (M2M) cloud. Since the inception of M2M cloud communication technology, the number of M2M devices has radically increased. This has consequently increased the overall traffic of the network which, in turn, makes the entire network congestion prone. The work assumes an underlying clustered network topology of the M2M devices. […]

Inference of Conversation Partners by Cooperative Acoustic Sensing in Smartphone Networks

A lot of personal daily contexts and activities may be inferred by analyzing acoustic signals in vicinity. Conversations play an important role in one’s social communications. In this work, we consider the inference of conversation partners via acoustic sensing conducted by a group of smartphones in vicinity. By considering the continuity and overlap of speeches, we propose […]

Social behavior in bacterial nanonetworks: challenges and opportunities

Molecular communication holds the promise to enable communication between nanomachines with a view to increasing their functionalities and opening up new possible applications. Due to some of the biological properties, bacteria have been proposed as a possible information carrier for molecular communication, and the corresponding communication networks are known as bacterial nanonetworks. The biological properties include the […]

Decentralized Energy Allocation for Wireless Networks With Renewable Energy Powered Base Stations

In this paper, a green wireless communication system in which base stations are powered by renewable energy sources is considered. This system consists of a capacity-constrained renewable power supplier (RPS) and a base station (BS) that faces a predictable random connection demand from mobile user equipments (UEs). In this model, the BS, which is powered […]

Social Hue: A subtle awareness system for connecting the elderly and their caregivers

In this position paper, we propose an unobtrusive solution for improving bonding relations between the elderly and their caregivers, through the Social Hue. The Social Hue is a bidirectional application that is based on the Philips Hue light. To create social presence, activity and emotional states will be detected through sensors and will be transformed into ambient lighting into the elder’s home and […]

Temporal reasoning on Twitter streams using semantic web technologies

There has been a significant increase in recent years in the volume and diversity of streams of data, data streams from sensors, data streams arising from the analysis of content or data mining, right through to user generated Twitter streams. There has been a corresponding increase in demand for more real-time analysis of these streams in […]

A QoE-Aware Resource Distribution Framework Incentivizing Context Sharing and Moderate Competition

We contend that context information of Internet clients can help to efficiently manage a variety of underlying resources for different Internet services and systems. We therefore propose a resource distribution framework that provides quality of experience (QoE) aware service differentiation, which means that starving clients are prioritized in resource allocation to enhance the corresponding end-user’s […]

A design of contract-oriented sensor application platform

As miniaturized and high functional sensor devices like smartphones have spread, we can utilize large amounts of sensing data gathered from these devices. Participatory sensing is one of modern sensor-based application models in which users provide their sensing data including their personal data as well as get services. Current models, however, have limitations on flexible data flow based […]

Mobile Energy Sharing Networks: Performance Analysis and Optimization

Energy is a scarce resource in wireless communications and mobile networking. In this paper, a novel concept of mobile energy sharing networks is proposed to enhance the energy usage of wirelessnetworks. In such networks, mobile users can share energy with one another when they move and meet, thus minimizing the chances of ending up with insufficient energy for their […]
