Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: MISC - Massive Information Scavenging with Intelligent Transportation Systems

Acronym: MISC
Main Objective:
The MISC project has the following key objectives:
- Scientific goals: devise adequate models for network information flow in vehicular networks and urban environments; quantify the benefits of
network coding for massive data gathering; characterize human stress in traffic situations; provide solid guidelines for the design secure and
dependable system architectures;
- Technical goals: Develop secure network coding protocols that leverage geographic positioning information to bring the right information to the
right place at the right time; combine real-time biomedical signals with vehicle and urban context information;
- Social-economic goals: increase the safety and efficiency of public transportation systems and road networks by means of massive data gathering

technology; transfer technology to local and global companies.
- Education goals: attract the brightest students for a career in R&D, use the developed data gathering tools for lab training, adopt some of MIT’s
best practices.
