The nature of human mobility demands that mobile devices become agile to diverse operating environments. Coping with such diversity requires the device to assess its environment, and trigger appropriate responses to each of them. While existing communication subsystems rely on in-band wireless signals for context-assessment and response, we explore a lateral approach of using out-ofband sensor information. We propose a relatively novel framework that synthesizes in-band and out-of-band information, facilitating more informed communication decisions. We believe that further research in this direction could enable a new kind of device agility, deficient in today's communication systems. Since such a framework is located at the boundaries of mobile sensing and wireless communication, we call it sensor assisted wireless communication.
