Dynamic Adaptation and Mobile Wireless Systems: Experiences and Challenges

Margaret Martonosi, Dept. of Electrical Engineering, Princeton University

Mobile wireless systems offer new challenges to network and systems designers alike. Operating under severe energy and bandwidth constraints, many mobile systems must be highly optimized in order to meet their data communication objectives with reasonable speeds and battery lifetimes. In this talk, I will describe a range of efforts underway to model, characterize and build mobile wireless systems that dynamically adapt themselves to particular aspects of observed behavior. Mobility-adaptive protocols, for example, promise significant improvements in bandwidth and latency, but only if the adaptation is effective and the system overhead can be controlled. In addition to talking about research and implementation successes (including a ZebraNet deployment in Kenya) I will also talk about the challenges in doing work in this area, and outline a wishlist of future research efforts to address these challenges.

Margaret Martonosi is currently Professor of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University, where she has been on the faculty since 1994. She is an affiliated faculty member in the Computer Science department as well. Her research interests are in computer architecture and the hardware/software interface, with particular focus on power-efficient systems and mobile computing. Martonosi has been co-author on over 90 refereed publications and inventor on six granted US patents. She is currently vice-chair of ACM SIGARCH and a member of the board of directors for ACM SIGMETRICS. Martonosi completed her Ph.D. at Stanford University, and also holds a Master's degree from Stanford and a bachelor's degree (with distinction) from Cornell University, all in Electrical Engineering.
