“Designing offline tolerance for mobile applications
The vision of this project is to develop protocols to allow for offline tolerance of mobile applications and to design an offline mode for all applications. This would involve leveraging existing technologies including WiFi, Bluetooth, and local peer to peer networks to be able to transmit data. Furthermore, the protocol would provide a way to sync with the central servers after switching back from offline mode to online mode. These applications have a variety of use cases in the future, such as being used in disaster scenarios where there is a lack of cellular networks and could provide a messaging platform to get information out as quickly as possible.
I did research for two summers in the Sur Lab in Brain and Cognitive Science in high school prototyping platforms for mouse training and running my own psychophysics experiment. I also interned at Homejoy, developing their Cleaner facing Android application.
