WiRank: Wi-Fi Android Manager (2013-2014)

WiRank (2014)




Wireless networks abound around us, in particular in urban environments. Most portable devices provide a list of visited wireless networks and our devices connect to some of them, based on several aspects, such as signal quality.
WiRank is a tool that allows a citizen to be connected to its preferred networks, from the list of available wireless etworks. The preference is based on a series of parameters, such as the number of visits a deork over timevice pays to a network over time.
provides a seamless way for the citizen to keep its preferred connections, thus assisting handovers.
If there are no available wireless networks, WiRank disables the regular wireless scanning process, and activates it again when there is some likelihood of the device being in the vicinity of a new preferred network.





WiRank is a tool derived from the MTracker mobility estimation solution. WiRank provides better wireless connectivity in Android devices, by anticipating a user's preferences towards visited networks.

WiRank is a tool developed by Luis Lopes under LGPLv3.0, and the first example of a COPELABS technology transfer pet project.
