Established Labs

Established the Distributed and Mobile Computing Lab, which was funded by the Tempus project at a cost of approximately $62K. This lab allows for doing research relating to distributed systems and databases and to mobile computing and wireless ad-hoc networking. For teaching, it is used in conjunction with the courses Mobile Ad hoc and Sensor Networks, Pervasive Computing, Distributed Databases, and Web Server Design. The lab equipments include two high-end servers, 12 workstations, over 20 mobile computing devices, development kits at the OS and driver levels, and wireless access points.
