About the lecture
The wire-based telephone design improved significantly during the first half of the last century and subsequently went wireless during the second half. In parallel with these technological improvements, mobile phones became an indispensable feature of modern life.

We have recently witnessed a seamless fusion of computing technology with communication technology - phones have increasingly become multi-purpose computers capable, not only of connecting people, but also of playing music, taking photos, being aware of the surrounding environment and much more.

This talk will concentrate on one feature of the phone and how to use it to build a wireless environment capable of generating, collecting and distributing real-time urban traffic information.
