Network Reconnaissance (NetRecon) Lab Research Projects

The Network Reconnaissance (NetRecon) Lab is directed by Professor Corey E. Baker. The NetRecon Lab conducts research in the area of cyber physical systems specializing in opportunistic wireless communication for the Internet of Things (IoT), smart cities, smart homes, and mobile health environments. Our research is situated in the evaluation and real-world application of delay tolerant networks (DTNs), mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs), and software defined networks (SDNs) to empower device-to-device (D2D) social networks for crowd sourcing information. Leveraging D2D communication provides complementary solutions to traditional networks which are typically dependent upon centralized infrastructures such as the Internet. The goal of our research is to make data accessible in the midst of intermittent and poor connectivity while minimizing delay.
