Section: Partnerships and Cooperations
The partners in the ANR ABCD project are: Orange Labs, Ucopia, Inria UrbaNet, UPMC LIP6 PHARE, Telecom ParisTech. The objective of ABCD is to characterize large-scale user mobility and content consumption in urban areas via mobile data mining, so as to achieve efficient deployment and management of cloud resources via virtual machines. Our contribution in the project consists on the characterization of human mobility and service consumption at a city scale, and the design of appropriate resource allocation techniques at the cellular network level.

Common Laboratory Inria/Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs
UrbaNet is part of the ADR Green of the common laboratory Inria/Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs. This ADR provides the PhD grant of Soukaina Cherkaoui on the adaptation of wireless sensor network control protocols for optimizing the energy consumption of heterogeneous cellular LTE networks.
We have coordinated the participation of several Inria teams to the SenseCity EquipEx. Within the SenseCity project, several small reproduction of 1/3rd scale city surroundings will be built under a climatically controlled environment. Micro and nano sensors will be deployed to experiment on smart cities scenarios, with a particular focus on pollution detection and intelligent transport services. Urbanet will have the opportunity to tests some of its capillary networking solutions in a very realistic but controlled urban environment. The first deployment is scheduled early 2015.
