Effective incentive mechanisms are invaluable in mobile crowd sensing, for stimulating participation of smartphone users. Online auction mechanisms represent a natural solution for such sensing task allocation. Departing from existing studies that focus on an isolated system round, we optimize social cost across the system lifespan, while considering location constraints and capacity constraints...

This paper presents DopEnc, an acoustic-based encounter profiling system on commercial off-the-shelf smartphones. DopEnc automatically identifies the persons that users interact with in the context of encountering. DopEnc performs encounter profiling in two major steps: (1) Doppler profiling to detect that two persons approach and stop in front of each other via an <italic>effective</...

Wearable technologies play a central role in human-centered Internet-of-Things applications. Wearables leverage machine learning algorithms to detect events of interest such as physical activities and medical complications. A major obstacle in large-scale utilization of current wearables is that their computational algorithms need to be re-built from scratch upon any changes in the configuration...

Network coding is a promising technology proven to improve the performance of wireless networks. To successfully design a quality-of-service (QoS)-satisfied routing protocol with network coding, the bandwidth consumption of a coding host should be determined. Furthermore, coding opportunities should be increased to improve network capacity. Nevertheless, it is challenging to determine whether a... Read more on IEEE Xplore

With files proactively stored at base stations (BSs), mobile edge caching enables direct content delivery without remote file fetching, which can reduce the end-to-end delay while relieving backhaul pressure. To effectively utilize the limited cache size in practice, cooperative caching can be leveraged to exploit caching diversity, by allowing users served by multiple base stations under the...
