  1. [TWC 2021] OMUS: Efficient Opportunistic Routing in Multi-Modal Underwater Sensor Networks, Xianyang
    Abstract: Underwater wireless sensor networks (UWSNs) have emerged as an enabling technology for aquatic monitoring. However, data delivery in UWSNs is challenging, due to the harsh aquatic environment and characteristics of the underwater acoustic channel. In recent years, underwater nodes with multi-modal communication capabilities have been proposed to create communication diversity and improve data delivery in UWSNs. Nevertheless, less attention has been devoted to the design of networking protocols leveraging multi-modal communication capabilities of underwater nodes. In this paper, we propose a novel stochastic model for the study of opportunistic routing (OR) in multi-modal UWSNs. We also design two candidate set selection heuristics, named OMUS-E and OMUS-D, for the joint selection of the most suitable acoustic modem for data transmission and next-hop forwarder candidate nodes at each hop, aimed to reduce the energy consumption and improve the network data delivery ratio in multi-modal UWSNs, respectively. Numerical results showed that both proposed heuristics reduced the energy consumption by 65%, 70%, and 75% as compared to the DBR, HydroCast, and GEDAR classical related work protocols, while maintaining a similar data delivery ratio. Furthermore, the proposed solutions outperformed the CAPTAIN routing protocol in terms of data delivery ratio, while maintaining comparable energy consumption.
  2. [MobiCom 2021] Combating link dynamics for reliable lora connection in urban settings, Wangxiong
    Abstract: LoRa, as a representative Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN) technology, can provide long-range communication for battery-powered IoT devices with a 10-year lifetime. LoRa links in practice, however, experience high dynamics in various environments. When the SNR falls below the threshold (e.g., in the building), a LoRa device disconnects from the network. We propose Falcon, which addresses the link dynamics by enabling data transmission for very low SNR or even disconnected LoRa links. At the heart of Falcon, we reveal that low SNR LoRa links that cannot deliver packets can still introduce interference to other LoRa transmissions. Therefore, Falcon transmits data bits on the low SNR link by selectively interfering with other LoRa transmissions. We address practical challenges in Falcon design. We propose a low-power channel activity detection method to detect other LoRa transmissions for selective interference. To interfere with the so-called interference-resilient LoRa, we accurately estimate the time and frequency offsets on LoRa packets and propose an adaptive frequency adjusting strategy to maximize the interference. We implement Falcon, all using commercial off-the-shelf LoRa devices, and extensively evaluate its performance. The results show that Falcon can provide reliable communication links for disconnected LoRa devices and achieves the SNR boundary upto 7.5 dB lower than that of standard LoRa.
  3. [IMWUT 2021] A City-Wide Crowdsourcing Delivery System with Reinforcement Learning, Wenjie
    Abstract: The revolution of online shopping in recent years demands corresponding evolution in delivery services in urban areas. To cater to this trend, delivery by the crowd has become an alternative to the traditional delivery services thanks to the advances in ubiquitous computing. Notably, some studies use public transportation for crowdsourcing delivery, given its low-cost delivery network with millions of passengers as potential couriers. However, multiple practical impact factors are not considered in existing public-transport-based crowdsourcing delivery studies due to a lack of data and limited ubiquitous computing infrastructures in the past. In this work, we design a crowdsourcing delivery system based on public transport, considering the practical factors of time constraints, multi-hop delivery, and profits. To incorporate the impact factors, we build a reinforcement learning model to learn the optimal order dispatching strategies from massive passenger data and package data. The order dispatching problem is formulated as a sequential decision making problem for the packages routing, i.e., select the next station for the package. A delivery time estimation module is designed to accelerate the training process and provide statistical delivery time guarantee. Three months of real-world public transportation data and one month of package delivery data from an on-demand delivery platform in Shenzhen are used in the evaluation. Compared with existing crowdsourcing delivery algorithms and widely used baselines, we achieve a 40% increase in profit rates and a 29% increase in delivery rates. Comparison with other reinforcement learning algorithms shows that we can improve the profit rate and the delivery rate by 9% and 8% by using time estimation in action filtering. We share the data used in the project to the community for other researchers to validate our results and conduct further research.1 [1].
