MOVE-R: Improving the Realism of Mobility and Cooperation Models in Opportunistic Networks

About the project

MOVE-R is a research project supported by a Marie Curie Intra European Fellowship within the 7th European Community Framework Programme (FP7-PEOPLE-2010-IEF-276336-MOVE-R). The project was run by me from 09/2011 - 08/2013. It was flagged as a success story by REA.


MOVE-R aims at developing realistic mobility and co-presence models, realistic device models and cooperation algorithms, and traffic patterns for opportunistic networks.
