Universidad Politécnica de Valencia

Between Jul 2011 and Jun 2016 I was part of the Group of Computer Networks at the UPV. During this time I develop several projects that together form my PhD Thesis. This list illustrates my tasks and the technologies I used during that time.

GRCBox (see on GitHub)

The GRCBox was created to provide heterogeneous communication for mobile devices in vehicles. The idea is to overcome the connectivity limitations of mobile devices, such as smartphones or tablets, by installing a small and very cheap device, the GRCBox, into the vehicles. Currently the GRCBox supports Android and C# applications, it is opensource and can be downloaded from github.

Technologies involved:

  • Debian Linux was the operating system runing on the Raspberry Pis
  • Iptables was used to tag packets based on UDP and TCP ports.
  • Advance IP Routing was used to redirect packets to output interfaces based on tags.
  • JAVA and the RESTlet framework were used to create the server running in the RaspberryPi
  • I implemented clients for Android (JAVA) and Windows (C#)

VACaMobil (see on GitHub)

VACaMobil is a Vehicular Mobility manager integrated in the Omnet++  Inet framework. It is written in C++. When simulating Vehicular Networks, VACaMobil allow the researcher to easily keep the number of vehicles in the network between defined bounds. This task was impossible to achieve before we developed VACaMobil.

Technologies involved:

  • C++
  • Perl
  • Networking
  • 802.11 standards

GODDTN Model (see on GitHub)

When surveying the literature, I found that the implementations of different DTN protocols for simulations were rarely fairly comparable. Therefore, I decided to develop the GodDtn, a set of modules that allow to quickly implement different DTN protocols for Vehicular Networks, enabling the user to fairly compare their performance.

Projects Funded by National Institutions:

  • Smart@Car Phone: National project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economics.
  • WalkieTalkie: National project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.
  • SEISCIENTO: National project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.
