Wireless Networking and Sensing (WiNS) Lab

Student uses Robot as Platform in Mobile Network

The Wireless Networking and Sensing (WiNS) Lab in the Department of Computer Science at UNC Charlotte focuses on research that advances the way that people and applications interact in emerging wireless networks, mobile computing and smart sensing. Research areas include algorithm design for various mobile and wireless networks and pervasive computing environments. Researchers explore problems and solutions for ad hoc networks, sensor networks, delay tolerant  networks, mobile social networks, smart sensing, and the Internet of Things. Topics of particular interest include:

  • topology design and energy efficiency
  • smart sensing and computing
  • mobile social networking and computing
  • participatory sensing and crowd sensing
  • performance modelling and optimization
  • algorithm design and analysis
