Room 333 WERC (Fishbowl)
This talk covers some topics in vehicular networks. Vehicular ad hoc network, which, if successfully deployed, will be the largest distributed network system ever. Focusing on its primary use case – crash avoidance based on Cooperative Awareness Messages, this talk will present an analytical model for the efficiency and reliability of such heartbeat messages, and an open loop congestion control method which is vehicle density independent. As the foundation for future commercial services, data dissemination in such vehicular network receives increasing interest. This talk will cover the application of Network Coding in this emerging domain.
Bio: Fei Ye received the B.Eng. and M.Sc. degrees, both in electronic engineering, from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2005 and 2007, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Washington, Seattle, in 2011. His main interest is wired and wireless networks including vehicular network, wireless LAN, WAN, data center network, with an emphasis on the performance optimization at different layers. His recent work is on data dissemination in vehicular networks, and data center networks. His previous experiences were at the Mitsubishi Electric Research Lab (MERL) (Jan-Sep 2009), and Robert Bosch Research and Technology Center (Jun-Dec 2010); presently he works for Google Inc. on infrastructure networks, including Software-Defined Networking (SDN). His IEEE Society service includes membership of conference technical program committees, and technical reviewers for IEEE/ACM computer networking and communication journals.
