OrangeCone is a Citizen Engagement tool that creates a real-time conversation about public spaces between Citizens and their Governments
Track and know each other ETA for an event to prevent texting or calling while driving. it also time stamps each persons arrival
In this demo, two vehicles equipped with virtualized vehicular sensing and control (VSC) platforms are collecting real time sensing data while driving around Detroit midtown. Through the WSU GENI WiMAX network and GENI VLAN, the sensed data are sent to different users for various experiments, emulations, or real-world applications such as vehicle fuel economy sensing, and real-time 3D image reconstruction. In particular, we will demonstrate that VSC network emulation executes in ExoGENI racks to show the impact of novel solutions from NSF-funded research on reliable, real-time wireless communication.
Helping residents in North Carolina forecast and predict storms for coastal North Carolina waters. The project covers a range of coastal oceanographic and engineering problems, including regional and local tidal phenomena and coupled storm surge and wave hindcasts to identify storm surge and flooding hazards.
Clemson University in collaboration with the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SC-DOT) is developing the South Carolina Connected Vehicle Testbed (SC-CVT) located along a 5-mile segment of Interstate I-85 in Greenville South Carolina. As part of the testbed, the team will develop, evaluate, and demonstrate two applications: traffic incident detection and queue warning.
Use lighting scripts, social & open data to improve safety and attractivity of Stratumseind in Eindhoven, with 50 pubs and 20.000 visitors.
Integration of real-time mobile air pollution monitoring into air monitoring grid and viewing of results on mobile devices
WiRover: A Technology for Robust Internet Connectivity and Smart Transportation for Vehicles. WiRover technology provides high-bandwidth, robust, and seamless connectivity to moving vehicles. The technology has been deployed in the ambulances and is enabling advanced emergency response solutions from the ambulances. Doctors in hospitals can directly access patient records, their current vital data, an audio-visual feed, and other critical information as soon as the ambulance first arrives at the patient site. Quick and robust access to such information can significantly improve the nature of urgent care in a manner not possible otherwise. Other successful deployments include public transit buses and taxi cabs where the technology drives real-time audio-visual messaging and navigational services. We will show videos of how the WiRover technology works in relaying critical data using some EKG and related medical equipment as examples.
Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere is a new paradigm to observe the lower part of the atmosphere to better warn the public of severe weather threats (e.g., tornados, flash floods) with the ultimate goal to safe lives and property. This goal is achieved by creating closed-loop networks of small, low-cost radars that scan close to the ground. With these networks the atmosphere can be scanned in much finer spatial and temporal resolution than with the current, operational radar system. These features enable forecasters to give earlier and more precise warnings in the case of severe weather. The CASA system relies heavily on the Internet to transmit data from and to the sensors. Advanced networking is essential in this case, since the control-loop of the system requires low latency and the radars can transmit data of up to 150 Mbps each.
Yes, you can do effective digital forensic / cyber security techniques from across the country. We will discuss the current state of remote digital forensic / cyber security. Focusing on time - how long does this currently take and what are the strengths / weaknesses. We will propose the concept of doing all of this remotely using a Forensic Operations Center (a play on SOC/NOC). Provide strengths/ weaknesses.
Using SDN and across the board virtualization, service providers can remotely control and deliver any application to users. An example of the application delivery system will be demonstrated. Several server applications will initiate client VMs and deliver and control content remotely. The examples will include web browser, office suite (word processor, spreadsheet, powerpoint, and other), video games, emergency communications, a two way video phone, etc. The dynamic packet priorities will be demonstrated via OpenFlow.
The drone-carried on-demand WiFi networks provide in-time, reliable and high-speed WiFi access at emergencies, public events, and rural areas when such infrastructures are destroyed, do not meet the demands, or do not exist. We will demonstrate two flying drones providing on-demand WiFi networks. Directional antennae are used to significantly extend the WiFi transmission range. A heading control enables robust connection despite disturbances and drone mobility.
Providing a one-stop platform for flood warnings, forecasts, visualizations, mapping and weather information
Detection, observation, and assessment of situations requiring intervention by emergency responders depends on high-quality "live" data.
Creating tools for the public to obtain a comprehensive understanding of contested events from multiple video accounts. Rashomon is an online toolkit that allows users to create, display and analyze multi-perspective video and photo timelines to develop a more nuanced understanding of complex events.
The common man is unaware of symptoms, steps and temporary remedies to be taken during a critical health situation. We often lack the instant response we need to avail during these crises.
We want to give users more control over their privacy by providing additional control over the sensors on their smartphone.
