self-organizing Future Ubiquitous Network

Team presentation

The FUN research group investigates solutions to enhance programmability, adaptability and reachability of FUN (Future Ubiquitous Networks) composed of RFID, wireless sensor and robot networks. The objects that compose FUN are characterized by limited resources, high mobility and high security level in spite of untrusted environment.They communicate in a wireless way. To be operational and efficient, such networks have to follow some self-organizing rules. Indeed, components of FUN have to be able in a distributed and energy-efficient way to discover the network, self(deploy, communicate, self-structure in spite of their harware constraints while adapting the environment in which they evolve.

Research themes

FUN (Future Ubiquitous Networks) are composed of wireless sensor networks, robots networks and RFID. Self-organization of FUN (Future Ubiquitous Networks): - discovering the network - network structuring: clustering, DHT-based overlay, topology control - Activity scheduling: sleep mode triggering, data sending, actor-actor coordination - Communicating

International and industrial relations

FUN has several collaborations with different companies: - a CRE with France Telecom - a direct collaboration with NooliTic - an i-Lab with Etineo: EtiPOPS - CIFRE with TRAXENS - many collaborations through funding projects
