Securing the Internet of Things (2014-now)

In this project, we explore new architectures to address the security challenges created by the Internet of Things (IoT). Read more...



Robot-based Sensing (2011-now)

Social robots, such as the CMU CoBot, are becoming more common. These robots use our networking infrastructure in very different ways than the humans for which the infrastructure was designed. In this project, we examine how we can make these robots both use this infrastrucutre more efficiently and how to make use of these robots to monitor and improve our infrastructure. Read more...



Video Content Delivery (2010-now)

In this project, we explore new protocols, metrics, architectures and applications to improve the efficiency and quality of video delivery on the Internet. Read more...



eXpressive Internet Architecture (XIA) (2010-now)

Our vision for the future Internet is that of a single internetwork that, in contrast to today's Internet, will: 1) be trustworthy, 2) support long-term evolution of usage models, 3) support long-term technology evolution and 4) support explicit interfaces between network actors. Read more...



Content-Aware Networking (2008-2012)

Different users on the Internet often access the same content. This results in the same data being transferred repeatedly over the network, leading to inefficient resource usage. In this project, we consider making the Internet architecture more content-aware and more efficient for the modern usage patterns of the Internet. Read more...



Chaotic Wireless (2005-2010)

Before 2005, the bulk of the research done by the wireless networking community focused on topics such as sensor networks, mesh networks and ad hoc networks. In this project, we focus on the problems associated with the wide-spread use of 802.11 and other popular wireless hardware. Specifically, we focus on the challenges associated with unplanned, poorly managed deployments that are common in consumer settings. Read more...
