Dipankar Raychaudhuri, Ivan Seskar and Yanyong Zhang received a 3-year NSF grant of $300K for the project " Virtual Mobile Cloud Network for Realizing Scalable, Real-Time Cyber Physical Systems."

The project is part of a new US-Japan collaborative program called JUNO and involves joint work with a research group at NICT (National Institute for Information and Communications Technology), Tokyo.

This project leverages prior work on virtual mobile network technology at NICT and the MobilityFirst future Internet architecture at WINLAB, Rutgers University, to develop a comprehensive services and networking solution for high-performance cyber physical systems that scales to the "trillion object" level targeted by the JUNO program. The aim is to develop a virtual mobile cloud network (vMCN) which provides seamless and low latency services to real-time mobile users and applications.
