Error Resilient Communication and Processing Techniques for Streaming Data Year Two

Emerging applications such as interactive video conferencing, Voice over IP (VoIP) and cloud computing are required to achieve an end-to-end latency of less than 200 milliseconds. In many wireless networks, the round-trip time can alone reach this limit. Hence it is necessary to develop new delay-optimized networking protocols and delay-sensitive coding techniques in order to meet such stringent delay constraints. The proposed project will investigate both theoretical foundations and practical implementations to reduce delays in interactive communication scenarios. On the theoretical level, different setups will be investigated with multiple users and different delay constraints at each receiver. Also, the impact of user cooperation will be studied. In addition to the theoretical analysis, a prototype will be implemented to test the theory in a practical setting.
