In 2009, I began working with UVA’s Internet Media Research Group designing and building what evolved into NOMADS (Network Object Mobile Agent Dynamic System). The system efficiently transmits data between sets of mobile devices and web applications in real time. The data protocol, SAND (Synchronized Application Network Dialog) provides a portable interface for sending, receiving and routing data between Java and ObjectiveC clients. The system architecture facilitates sharing structured data between clients on virtually any platform.
Last year we took some time to write a paper about our work.
NOMADS for Auksalaq was used by performers and users around the globe in the premiere performance of the multimedia opera, Auksalaq on October 29, 2012.
