5G Campus Networks and
Smart Sustainable (Rural) Communities

The DISC lab research group is setting up a low power long-range wireless network system on the CMU campus. We are currently in the initial set-up phase and are looking for students that are interested in conducting R&D in this exciting field.

MDOT Data Source

The DISC lab via CMU has become a data source of near real-time and historic sensor information from the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT). Stay tuned for updates on our research with this data or get in touch if you are interested in analyzing it together with us!

Multimedia Networking and Quality


We are researching the Quality of Experience in Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) settings, based on explicit human subject feedback as well as from Quality of Service (QoS) parameters. We are also interested in the effects across different reality settings, which leads to Across Reality QoE (XRQoE) interdependencies.
