—Widespread of smartphones which are equipped with cameras and an Internet connection allow development of applications that might be used as parking assistance, or to help humans to coordinate their actions with something that they cannot see directly. We propose an application that uses distributed architecture with carefully designed techniques to deal with Network Address Translation (NAT) issues and to allow users to, simply, temporarily and in an Ad-Hoc manner, interconnect their smartphones and achieve live video streaming with QoS feedback. Based on the proposed model, a prototype application was implemented and tested. Conducted experiments confirm the soundness of this approach.
—Video streaming, mobile application, peer-to-peer, Ad-Hoc association.
