Here is a list of software created at the WINET laboratory. Most are open source and free for download.

CIA2 project - Smart traffic

In the CIA2 project we developed tools to aid in traffic management. One of the tools allows drivers to identify parking spots and to identify hazards on transit (animals, potholes, accidents). More details can be found here.

Bwping-udp network measurement tool

Performance evaluation is an important process on the development of new protocols and networks. The existing tools are not suited to evaluate wireless networks, since they neglect features as packet losses and jitter caused by retransmissions at the MAC layer, which are commonplace in wireless networks. bwping-udp is a performance evaluation tool for wireless networks that measures throughput, jitter and loss rate. Its aim is to be used in research as well as to characterize the quality of the network in an environment. More details can be found in our github repository.

SDR Modules in GNU Radio

We have developed a series of modules in GNU Radio. The FS-MAC repository provides a system that changes MAC protocols based on a fuzzy decision system. It implements TDMA and CSMA over IEEE 802.15.4. The repository is in GitHub.

Ethanol - an SDN southbound interface for IEEE 802.11

Ethanol is a southbound SDN interface for IEEE 802.11 access points. It can control physical and MAC layer parameters such as the channel, transmission power, SSID. It can also be used to receive reports such as the SINR,a scan of the nearby WiFi networks, among many other commands. The code is available in GitHub.
