This video provides an overview and introduction to the UMass Amherst Diverse Outdoor Mobile Environment (DOME) test bed. DOME consists of approximately 35 computer-equipped buses and a mesh network built in cooperation with the Town of Amherst. Each computer on a bus, referred to as a brick, has a WiFi PCI card and a separate WiFi access point, a 3G modem, a proprietary 900MHz radio, and a GPS device. We built the system because mobile systems research is affected by many variables, encompassing environmental interference, throughput and latency, movement, connection establishment and node discovery, to name just a few. The test bed allows us to measure, identify, and validate these variables and evaluate novel systems in a large scale environment. Users construct experiments as virtual machines that are uploaded and executed on each bus.

DOME has been operational since May 2004, and has received funding from the National Science Foundation, the DARPA DTN program, and most recently, the NSF Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) program. DOME is available to researchers all over the world, please contact us if you are interested in using it for academic research.
