September 9, 2015

"Krowd: A Key-Value Store for Crowded Venues," won the Best-Paper Award at the 10th ACM Workshop on Mobility in the Evolving Internet Architecture (MobiArch). This work is a part of the Hyrax mobile-cloud computing project started by ECE Professor Priya Narasimhan and INI Professor Rajeev Gandhi three years ago, and driven by their real-world experiences with YinzCam, a Carnegie Mellon spin-off company supporting 140+ professional teams and league around the world. Utsav Drolia and Nathan Mickulicz, ECE Ph.D. students collaborated to develop a novel idea to address the challenges of building wireless infrastructure to support the easy sharing of user-generated content in high-density environments such as sports stadiums. Krowd proposes a novel way of developing a mobile infrastructure "by the people, for the people," by crowdsourcing fans' own mobile devices to stand up mobile-cloud clusters. Utsav's Ph.D. thesis is focused on crowdsourced mobile-cloud infrastructure while Nathan's Ph.D. thesis is focused on large-scale wireless analytics.
