GetMobile is the new incarnation of the quarterly ACM SIGMOBILE Mobile Computing and Communications Review, which was formerly known as MC2R. GetMobile is the premier forum for addressing networks, systems, algorithms, and applications that support the symbiosis of portable computers and wireless networks.
Bio-Behavioral Sensing: An Emerging Engineering Area
There is now a significant body of evidence that links human behavior to human health and well-being. In fact, for some behaviors like smoking, the harm to health is so well documented that it has led to public health policies, such as banning smoking inside buildings. Similarly, there is also growing evidence documenting the health benefits of many behaviors, e.g., regular exercise and healthy eating. However, we are only beginning to understand the deep bi-directional connections between human behavior and biology, largely powered by the rapidly increasing body of knowledge from the field of behavioral epigenetics. Since 2000, an explosion of results are unraveling the two-way pathways of how our molecular biology influences our behavior and how our behavior influences our molecular biology.
An Overview of 3GPP Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything Standards
With the growth of mobile data and devices, cellular networks have great potential to support various vehicular communication services for safety and non-safety applications. This paper presents an overview of the 3GPP cellular vehicle-to-everything (V2X) standards. We discuss various aspects of V2X standards, including types of V2X application support in 3GPP, requirements to support eV2X scenarios, different levels of automation, comparison of V2X and IEEE 802.11p, architecture, spectrum usage, and security and privacy for V2X services. Finally, we conclude this article with a review of typical V2X applications.
