Networking


Continuing advances in the computational power, radio components, and memory elements have led to the proliferation of portable devices (e.g., intelligent sensors, actuators, RFID readers, PDAs, smartphone) with substantial processing capabilities and various networking interfaces. These devices are rapidly permeating a variety of application domains such as monitoring and remediation of an oil spill, underground mine safety, earth dam failure detection, and climate forecasting. These application areas align very well with Colorado School of Mines' strategic areas: earth, energy, and environment.

We conduct research and development within the realm of wireless networking and mobile computing, addressing challenges raised by the emerging pervasive computing environments and Internet of Things (IoT). Our overall research style involves the design of algorithms and protocols, the evaluation of concepts and ideas via both simulations and actual system building, and the development of applications using the algorithms and systems built. In addition to focusing on basic computer science research, we also actively conduct interdisciplinary research. Example contributions include using wireless robotic networks for oil refinery inspection and using wireless sensor networks for intelligent geosystems, subsurface contaminant monitoring, and building monitoring and control.
