Best Paper Award Presented at MASS ‘10

A paper co-authored by several from the College of Engineering at NC State University recently won the Best Paper Award at the 7th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad-hoc and Sensor Systems (IEEE MASS ‘10) in San Francisco, CA on November 9, 2010. 

Congratulations to the paper’s authors: Yao Liu, a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science, Dr. Peng Ning, professor in the Department of Computer Science, Dr. An Liu, a Computer Science Department PhD alumnus, and Dr. Huaiyu Dai, associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.


The paper is titled "USD-FH: Jamming-resistant Wireless Communication using Frequency Hopping with Uncoordinated Seed Disclosure". In this paper, the authors developed a novel, efficient, and robust scheme named USD-FH, which uses Uncoordinated Seed Disclosure in Frequency Hopping to enable wireless communication in presence of jammers. USD-FH employs a one-time pseudo-random hopping pattern to transmit a message, and discloses the seed of the pseudorandom hopping pattern in an uncoordinated manner before the actual message transmission. They compared USD-FH with previous techniques developed for the same objective through both theoretical analysis and simulation. Results show that USD-FH is much more efficient and robust than all previous approaches.
