Controlling the spreading of infectious diseases has been shown crucial in the COVID-19 pandemic. Traditional contact tracing is used to detect newly infected individuals by tracing their previous contacts, and by selectively checking and isolating any individuals likely to have been infected. Digital contact tracing with the utilisation of smartph...

Over the last few years we have witnessed an exponential growth in the adoption of LoRaWAN as LPWAN technology for IoT. While LoRaWAN offers many advantages, one of its limitations is the paltry data rate. Most IoT applications don't require a high throughput but there are some that would benefit from a higher data rate. In this paper, we present T...

In this paper we present a smartphone-based real-time video overtaking architecture for vehicular networks. The developed application aims to prevent head-on collisions that might occur due to attempts to overtake when the view of the driver is obstructed by the presence of a larger vehicle ahead. Under such conditions, the driver does not have a c...

Detecting and controlling the diffusion of infectious diseases such as COVID-19 is crucial to managing epidemics. One common measure taken to contain or reduce diffusion is to detect infected individuals and trace their prior contacts so as to then selectively isolate any individuals likely to have been infected. These prior contacts can be traced...

In scenarios where there is a lack of reliable infrastructures to support car-to-car communications, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) can be deployed as mobile infrastructures. However, the UAVs should be deployed at adequate location and heights to maintain the coverage throughout time as the irregularities of the terrain may have a significant imp...

Full-text available
Nowadays, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have become the preferred, and sometimes the only support tool when facing critical scenarios such as earthquakes, search and rescue missions, and border surveillance. In these scenarios, deploying a UAV swarm instead of a single UAV can provide additional benefits when, for example, cargo carrying requirem...
Article
Message Broadcasting in Opportunistic Networks is based on the opportunity of establishing contacts among mobiles nodes for message exchange. Nevertheless, as the amount of information transmitted in a contact is limited by the transmission speed and the contact duration, large messages are less likely to be exchanged, and thus their diffusion is s...

Full-text available
In areas with limited infrastructure, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) can come in handy as relays for car-to-car communications. Since UAVs are able to fully explore a three-dimensional environment while flying, communications that involve them can be affected by the irregularity of the terrains, that in turn can cause path loss by acting as obstac...

Over the last few years, several researchers have been developing protocols and applications in order to autonomously land unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). However, most of the proposed protocols rely on expensive equipment or do not satisfy the high precision needs of some UAV applications such as package retrieval and delivery or the compact land...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) can be used to support car-to-car communications when the infrastructures are not available or are unreliable. However, since cars in vehicular communications are mobile, the UAV that acts as a relay should move dynamically as a response to moving ground vehicles. In this paper, we propose a mobility model to manage...

MQTT, one of the most popular protocols for the IoT, works according to a publish/subscribe pattern in which multiple clients connect to a single broker, generally hosted in the cloud. However, such a centralised approach does not scale well considering the massive numbers of IoT devices forecasted in the next future, thus calling for distributed s...
