Optical Underwater Ad-Hoc Sensor Networks
In collaboration with Prof. Cody Youngbull at the School of Earth and Space Exploration at ASU, we have made it viable to use lightwave wireless sensor devices for underwater communication, which poses many new and interesting challenges in point-to-point and multi-hop network algorithm design: We have provisional patent application on multi-hop routing algorithms developed for such domains. This work has immediate practical applications and hence, in partnership with MacArtney Underwater Technology Group, we started UON technologies, a company created to address the needs of several underwater applications that can benefit from the type of lightwave sensor networks we can offer.
