The CoRe group works with computer communication-oriented research projects and is involved in most courses around these topics. We continously try to define undergraduate thesis proposals that can be carried out within the group. On this page, we present proposals of together with current and past undergraduate thesis proposals.
If you are interested in a proposed thesis project, contact the contact person for more details.
There are suggestions of modifications and optimizations of AODV, e.g., path accumulation. The project includes implementation of these experimental features according to draft-perkins-manet-aodvbis-01.txt in AODV-UU and evaluation using the network simulator ns-2.

The growing amount of traffic on the Internet has lead to regular IP switching technique becoming more and more inadequate. Since more IP switching routers have to be purchased in order to co-operate with the traffic the costs are rising for the ISPs. This has lead to extensive research on how to lower the cost for the end-toend computation. One of the ways in doing so is to use a tag-switching approach. This thesis will give a brief introduction to two tag-switching architectures, MPLS and SelNet, and show how these can co-operate despite their differences.
The Bluetooth technology has been incorporated in many recent consumer products. With this new technology spreading it becomes interesting to study how it can be used to create networks between devices and how it can work with already existing networking techniques. This thesis involved the porting of the LUNAR (Lightweight Underlay Network Ad hoc Routing) protocol to run over Bluetooth. It consisted of the design of the system as well as programming in the Gnu/Linux operating system both in userspace and kernel space.
