Thu, Oct 14 @ 2:39pm - Mid-Term Exam

Here's the cover page for the mid-term exam. It tells you what papers you'll be asked about and the guidelines for the exam. (Note: Don't read anything into the fact that it says "Page 1 of 2" at the bottom. The cover page is only 1 page long, and the total exam will be longer than 2 pages.)

Thu, Oct 14 @ 8:44am - Program 2

Use LogDistance fading (default in ns-3) instead of LogNormal Shadowing in Prog2.

Tue, Sep 30 @ 1:25pm - Class Cancelled due to Flooding

The university is closing at 4:15p, so I'm going to cancel class today.

  • Prog1 is still due, so email me your report PDF. I'll accept it until 8pm tonight.
  • Check the schedule. I'm pushing back presentations to start on Oct 14 instead of next week. I really want to talk about IEEE 1609 multi-channel.
  • Your project groups and topics are still due next week. Please come talk with me during office hours (or some other time) next week about your project plans. I've been adding potential projects to the list. Some of these involve the multi-channel papers we were going to cover today - make sure you read them.
  • Prog2 is assigned today. It is due 10/19 (Tuesday). Come talk with me if you had problems with Prog1.

Starting next week, my new office hours will be M 2-3pm, T 3-4pm, and R 2-3pm. As always, if you cannot make these office hours, please email me for an appointment at another time.

Mon, Sep 27 @ 8:07pm - CS 795/895 ns3 Highway Mobility Branch

Hadi created a branch of his code for us to modify. If you have improvements, fixes, suggestions for the code, this branch will allow you to commit the changes back so that everyone can have access to them. See CS 795/895 Development Version for more information.

Tue, Sep 21 @ 12:52pm - Projects, Papers for Sep 30, and Upcoming Schedule

I've added a couple of suggested final projects to the Projects page. Later this week, I'll post readings for Sep 30 and an updated paper schedule. Note that the paper you've been assigned as presenter will remain the same, but groups will be changed. I'll try to have the new schedule out by later today or tomorrow at the latest.

Fri, Sep 10 @ 10:41am - ns3 setup

I've posted a link to ns3 setup and tutorial information. The setup information is complete, so make sure that you've done those steps before class next Thursday. (Remember we're meeting in the 3rd floor computer lab.) I'll be making additions to the other sections of the page, so check back from time to time.

Fri, Sep 3 @ 8:06am - Papers for Next Week

I've posted links to the papers we'll cover next week on the schedule. I found another nice reference to graph-making which we'll cover briefly. Then, we'll review wireless networking (IEEE 802.11) concepts and dive into how this applies to vehicular networks. The first two papers (uzcategui and jiang) give an overview of IEEE 1609 (WAVE) and 802.11p. The second two papers (torrent-moreno and eichler) discuss the effects of priority access in WAVE. Check back next week for slides that I'll use in our discussion.
