This paper discusses a new paradigm of network service and in-network resource control: relational metric based control. The relational metrics indicate the closeness relationship between objects in the real world, and these objects could be people, locations, things, and content. Closeness is measured by using a fusion of online and physical sensing. We will describe the system model and discuss possible service applications of this technology.
