FABRIC In The News
Researchers at Danaides and Clemson University to utilize FABRIC to further develop an app to help civilians in disaster zones
FABRIC Testbed will assist with verification for P2PR2P, an app that is designed to help victims of conflict organize their own first response. Initially conceived by the French non-governmental organization Danaides, an interdisciplinary group of Clemson faculty and students created the app to securely connect civilians in conflict- and natural-disaster zones with people who can provide food, medicine, transportation and other aid.
Danaides will do its verification work on the FABRIC Testbed, which enables a wide range of computer engineering and network research.
“We look forward to collaborating with Danaides, Dr. Brooks and his students to help them advance P2PR2P,” said K.C. Wang, co-principal investigator on FABRIC. “The FABRIC Testbed is the ideal research infrastructure to meet their needs.”
