Presentations Include
Real Time Communications Lab Projects and Activities:
Director Carol Davids will provide an overview of the Indoor Location Project and the new projects that began as part of this project and now have an independent existence.

WebRTC-based PSAP for Emergency Communications: Both web-originated and SIP-originated can be received at our WebRTC Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP).  Geographic and civic location as well as indoor location are displayed on the browser of the PSAP operator both in text and on maps.  A demo of the functionality will be included.

Network Architectures to support the WebRTC PSAP: Architectures to route calls to Web-based PSAPs are not standardized yet.  This project describes several  network designs – centralized, decentralized and hierarchical- that meet the requirements for emergency communications services and are optimized for WebRTC methods.

BlueTooth/Sensor Array supports Heating andAir-conditioning: The student team is mapping the temperature and humidity in one building as the first stage of a project that will enable the building engineers to better control the environment in campus buildings.  This project leverages the code, infrastructure and architecture developed for the Indoor Location project.

BlueTooth-based Indoor Location for NG911 calls - Version 2.0: The students have built a platform that other developers can use to create new applications that leverage the existing array of bluetooth beacons and sensors and their associated database.  Redesign of the smartphone application that makes emergency calls – enabling it to integrate with the WebRTC PSAP - will also be described.
