  • A dynamic multimetric weights distribution in a multipath routing protocol using video-streaming services over MANETs 

    Mezher, Ahmad Mohamad; Iza, Cristhian; Tripp Barba, Carolina; Aguilar Igartua, Mónica (2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are infrastructureless networks formed by wireless mobile devices. Routing in MANETs is a process where the best path will be selected so that packets will be forwarded. When a MANET ...
  • A multimetric, map-aware routing protocol for VANETs in urban areas 

    Tripp Barba, Carolina; Urquiza Aguiar, Luis; Aguilar Igartua, Mónica; Rebollo Monedero, David; Cruz Llopis, Luis Javier de la; Mezher, Ahmad Mohamad; Aguilar-Calderón, José Alfonso (2014-01-28)
    Article
    Open Access
    In recent years, the general interest in routing for vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) has increased notably. Many proposals have been presented to improve the behavior of the routing decisions in these very changeable ...
  • A multi-user game-theoretical multipath routing protocol to send video-warning messages over mobile ad hoc networks 

    Mezher, Ahmad Mohamad; Aguilar Igartua, Mónica; Cruz Llopis, Luis Javier de la; Pallarès Segarra, Esteve; Tripp Barba, Carolina; Urquiza Aguiar, Luis; Fornés Guardia, Jordi; Sanvicente Gargallo, Emilio (2015-04-17)
    Article
    Open Access
    The prevention of accidents is one of the most important goals of ad hoc networks in smart cities. When an accident happens, dynamic sensors (e.g., citizens with smart phones or tablets, smart vehicles and buses, etc.) ...
  • Available bandwidth-aware routing in urban vehicular ad-hoc networks 

    Tripp Barba, Carolina; Mezher, Ahmad Mohamad; Aguilar Igartua, Mónica; Guérin-Lassous, Isabelle; Sarr, Cheikh (2012)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Vehicular communication for intelligent transportation systems will provide safety, comfort for passengers, and more efficient travels. This type of network has the advantage to warn drivers of any event occurred in the ...
  • Available bandwidth estimation in GPSR for VANETs 

    Tripp Barba, Carolina; Aguilar Igartua, Mónica; Urquiza Aguiar, Luis; Mezher, Ahmad Mohamad; Zaldivar Colado, Aníbal; Guérin-Lassous, Isabelle (ACM, 2013)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper proposes an adaptation of the collision probability used in the measure of the available bandwidth designed for Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) and which is described in ABE [12]. Instead, we propose a new ABE+ ...
  • Coherent and automatic address resolution for vehicular ad hoc networks 

    Urquiza Aguiar, Luis; Tripp Barba, Carolina; Rebollo Monedero, David; Mezher, Ahmad Mohamad; Aguilar Igartua, Mónica; Forné Muñoz, Jorge (2015)
    Article
    Open Access
    The interest in vehicular communications has increased notably. In this paper, the use of the address resolution (AR) procedures is studied for vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs).We analyse the poor performance of AR ...
  • Computational improvements in parallelized k-anonymous microaggregation of large databases 

    Mezher, Ahmad Mohamad; Garcia Alvarez, Alejandro; Rebollo Monedero, David; Forné Muñoz, Jorge (2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The technical contents of this paper fall within the field of statistical disclosure control (SDC), which concerns the postprocessing of the demographic portion of the statistical results of surveys containing sensitive ...
  • Contributions to provide a QoS-aware self-configured framework for video-streaming services over ad hoc networks 

    Mezher, Ahmad Mohamad (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-04-22)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Ad hoc networks have attracted much attention from the research community over the last years and important technical advances have risen as a consequence. These networks are foreseen as an important kind of next generation ...

    Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are infrastructureless networks formed by wireless mobile devices. Recently, the demand over multimedia services such as video streaming has increased specially since the number of mobile ...
  • Performance evaluation of dissemination protocols for emergency messages in Vehicular Ad-Hoc networks 

    Iza Paredes, Cristhian; Mezher, Ahmad Mohamad; Aguilar Igartua, Mónica (2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Road safety applications envisaged for VANETs depend largely on the exchange of messages to deliver information to the concerned vehicles. In the last years, several dissemination protocols have been presented in the ...
  • Realistic environment for VANET simulations to detect the presence of obstacles in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks 

    Mezher, Ahmad Mohamad; Jurado Oltra, Juan; Urquiza Aguiar, Luis; Iza Paredes, Cristhian; Tripp Barba, Carolina; Aguilar Igartua, Mónica (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Obstacles in Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) in urban scenarios are an important issue. Normally, in traffic simulators vehicles can send/receive packets between each other if they are in the same transmission range no ...
  • Smart city for VANETs using warning messages, traffic statistics and intelligent traffic lights
