  • Self deployment of Mobile Wireless Sensor Networks. We design an algorithm that allow different deployment/coverage schemes for mobile wirelss sensors. The deployment guarantees connectivity all along the deployment procedure. (Paper accepted in Transaction on Automatic Control)
  • QoS in Wireless sensor and Ad Hoc networks. We evalute the performance, based on multimedia criterias, of dynamic placement of mobile routers in substitution networks. (Paper accepted in Mobihoc).
  • Routing with guarantees in wireless sensor networks. HECTOR is a guarantee delivery geographic routing protocol for wireless sensor networks based on virtual coordinates. (Paper accepted in MSN)
  • MAC protocols for ad hoc networks: MadMac, PAS and SBA are adaptation of 802.11 for ad hoc networks. These protocols are fair and efficient compared to 802.11. (Paper accepted Computer Network and Ad Hoc Networks).
  • Performance evaluation of ad hoc networks: Performance evaluation of 802.11 in ad hoc mode using PEPA (Performance Evaluation Process Algebra). (Paper accepted in PIMRC).

Other features

  • WSNET: module for pattern mobility extracted from a file. [contact]
  • I've developed for ns-2.33 a static routing protocol named ASR (Ad-hoc Static Routing). This protocol avoid message exchanges for constructing or maintaining routes in ns-2 to better evaluate the performance of a MAC protocol. This protocol is based on Dikjstra algorithm by minimizing the number of hop between to a source and a destination. ASR also takes a routing distance as a parameter. [contact]

Short CV

Tahiry Razafindralambo received his MSc in applied statistics and computer science from the university of Antananarivo in 2001, his PhD. degree in Computer Science from the INSA de Lyon in 2007 and is HDR in 2013 in Lille. He is currently an Associate Professor at University of Reunion island. His research interests are mainly focused on distributed algorithms and protocols design for wireless networks and performance evaluation. He is involved in many organization and program committees of national and international conferences such as DCOSS, MASS, PE-WASUN, MSWIM, PIMRC, ICC and he is the principal investigator of many national and international projects.
