On March 6th, join the College of Physical and Engineering Sciences and the School of Engineering as they host Queen's University's Professor Hossam Hassanein.

Dr. Hassanein will present Utilizing Mobile Ubiquitous Resources (MUR) at 3pm on Thursday, March 6, 2014. The presentation will take place in Richards Building, Room 3504. The abstract is provided below.


A growing abundance of smart objects are largely underutilized. Everyday new smartphones enter the market with more sophisticated resources packed in multi-homed devices. At the same time, newer vehicles are being equipped with more sophisticated on board units (OBUs), encompassing an array of sensors. In both industries, the installed resources share a single attribute: they serve the user. In this talk we will explore the rising interest in public sensing systems that attempt to utilize these abundant resources to leverage sensing and communication infrastructures. We explore the potential of utilizing vehicles as resource providers, and the power of crowd-sourced sensing via smartphones, to boost the potential of Internet of Things (IoT) paradigms. We highlight recent developments at the Telecommunications Research Lab (TRL) at Queen’s University that address optimal resource utilization and public sensing paradigms geared towards synergetic solutions.
