Introduction to NSSLab

During the last a few decades, we have witnessed the Internet revolution which has significantly changed our daily life. As a result, wherever we are, whatever we do, we are always connected to the Internet through the wired/wireless network infrastructure, which can be seen as (human-centric) ubiquitous networking. However, this megatrend doesn’t have to be confined to the ubiquitous communication among between human beings. For example, in recent years, we have witnessed the explosive market growth of the SMARTPHONE which is an embedded computer system capable of accessing to the Internet via cellular or Wi-Fi networks. Another example would be a SMART-GRID system which is a new era of electric power systems via interconnection with the Internet.

We strongly believe that this revolution will continue to the networking of the SMART SYSTEMS, which can be defined as the device-centric (or machine-centric) networking. In the networked smart systems (NSS) laboratory, we attempt to study the state-of-the-art technologies to resolve many related issues in the networking of such smart systems including SMART VEHICLES and SMART NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE.
