Prof. Suman Banerjee along with partners are focused on creating new and innovative wireless services and applications across the city of Madison and vicinity. Given the key role of ubiquitous connectivity in the world today, this is an initiative that spans education, research, public safety, and other public services. The project involves setting up new and experimental wireless infrastructure, in static locations, in vehicles, and in creating new mobile apps and services to take advantage of them.
