Leveraging Human Mobility in Smartphone Based Ad-Hoc Information Distribution in Crowd Management Scenarios

Abstract: We propose a novel approach for Ad-Hoc WiFi based distribution of information within large crowds of mobile users. The work is motivated by civil protection scenarios where infrastructure based communication often breaks down in cases of emergency. We follow Continue reading

Analytical and Simulation Models for Collaborative Localization

Abstract: Collaborative localization is a special case for knowledge fusion where information is exchanged in order to attain improved global and local knowledge. We propose analytical as well as agent based simulation models for pedestrian dead reckoning (PDR) systems in Continue reading

Collaborative Localization as a Paradigm for Incremental Knowledge Fusion

Abstract: Collaborative localization is the computation of improved spatial coordinates in mobile agents based on their physical meetings in a pedestrian dead reckoning (PDR) system. Upon meeting the agents can exchange information about their subjective position and update it based Continue reading

Collaborative Activity Recognition

This work was presented at HAIDM 2015. The 2015 workshop on Human-Agent Interaction Design and Models was co-organised by SmartSociety. Abstract: We study simulation models of spreading on peer-to-peer communication networks where any peer (or agent) can be the source Continue reading
