1. The Subject and Aims of Research

Computer Network Laboratory advances the state of the art in many computer communication and network disciplines. We are working in several emerging fields within both theoretical computer science and practical engineering applications. Our research focuses on the areas of communication protocol, wireless network, mobile communication system, and broadband wireless Internet access. Previous research topics in the last three years include wireless mesh network, sensor network, mobile wireless network, and software-defined radio applications, etc. Seven research projects have been completed. Research results are disseminated in eight leading journals and sixteen international conference proceedings. The primary project of the laboratory at the present time involves two topics. One is energy-efficient routing in wireless sensor networks. A second is media access control in wireless mesh networks, which QoS requirements are taken into account.  In the future, the laboratory will conduct research into various ways of using wireless technology in practical applications. Several of our research topics cover integration of heterogeneous network, B3G wireless access network, wireless backbone network, ad hoc network, and pervasive computing, etc.
