Abstract

This research initiative seeks to develop a framework for better understanding the role of antenna design in inference-based tasks about interactions among device owners. In the envisioned setting, a collection of monitoring radios gather information about the geographical locations of devices over time using packet sniffing. The monitoring stations are passive, listening to ongoing Wi-Fi communications in promiscuous mode. These radios only record and disseminate meta data, thereby preserving the anonymity of the owners. More specifically, the monitoring system stores time-stamped, media access control (MAC) addresses as unique identifiers. The collected information, which is stored in a centralized database, is then analyzed to assess basic graphical properties, such as friendship or other forms of social connectivity.
