    • Mobile Phone Depth Sensors for Forest Carbon Measurement 

      Holcomb, Amelia (University of Waterloo, 2021-05-28)
      The monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) of forest plots, especially their tree-trunk diameters, is critical to achieving both forest protection and reforestation goals. Today’s MRV processes are mostly manual, ...
    • NeuRA: Using Neural Networks to Improve WiFi Rate Adaptation 

      Khastoo, Shervin (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-04)
      Although a variety of rate adaptation algorithms have been proposed for 802.11 devices, sampling-based algorithms are preferred and used in practice because they only require frame loss information which is available on ...
    • Optimizing MPI Collective Operations for Cloud Deployments 

      AlSader, Zuhair (University of Waterloo, 2020-01-24)
      Cloud infrastructures are increasingly being adopted as a platform for high performance computing (HPC) science and engineering applications. For HPC applications, the Message-Passing Interface (MPI) is widely-used. Among ...
    • Personal Data Management in the Internet of Things 

      Matharu, Ray Manpreet Singh (University of Waterloo, 2015-12-08)
      Due to a sharp decrease in hardware costs and shrinking form factors, networked sensors have become ubiquitous. Today, a variety of sensors are embedded into smartphones, tablets, and personal wearable devices, and are ...
    • T-SIMn: Towards a Framework for the Trace-Based Simulation of 802.11n Networks 

      Heard, Andrew (University of Waterloo, 2016-02-17)
      With billions of WiFi devices now in use, and growing, combined with the rising popularity of high-bandwidth applications, such as streaming video, demands on WiFi networks continue to rise. To increase performance for ...
