Title: An Android Framework for Opportunistic Wireless Mesh Networking
Published: Proceedings of the International Conference on Networked Systems, , pp. 1-2, Cottbus, Germany, March 2015
Abstract: Smartphones are more and more widespread in the society.They are powerful devices with huge storage space and high bandwidth communication capabilities.However, several use cases cannot be supported nowadays, especially when it comes to the exchange of large files between geographically close participants.Currently, smartphones only communicate through services in the Internet or through Bluetooth, both are limited in their bandwidth and scale.The exchange of large files of hundreds of MB between dozens of users is very time consuming and thus nearly impossible.We present an Android Framework and Application Toolkit for wireless, opportunistic mesh networking in combination with a peer-to-peer-based data management functionality.The smartphones create the wireless opportunistic mesh network without user interaction and negotiate the files to exchange, the nodes to contact and the transmission schedule.Thus, huge files can be exchanged through (multi-hop) wireless local communication between dozens of smartphones.This we demonstrate with several devices and also invite the participants to join the demonstration with their Android devices.
