    Fine-Grained Tracking of Human Mobility in Dense Scenarios

    This paper envisions an urban scenario where people carry radio devices that can be dynamically networked, by exploiting human contact opportunities, to create unplanned, improvised and localized wireless connectivity, which has been recently called Pocket Switched Networks (PSNs). PSNs are a subclass of Delay Tolerant Networks, but the fascinating idea...
