Visible to the public Enabling and Advancing Human and Probabilistic Context Awareness for Smart Facilities and Elder Care


We are at the end of a fouryear effort that has dramatically improved the capability of the use of RF sensors, particularly those that measure received signal strength (RSS) to sense the locations and context of people in buildings and homes. We have investigated both systems which use RFID tags to identify a person or object, and those which use a static deployed network of transceivers for devicefree localization, to locate people moving in the environment who do not carry any tag or device. Locating people who don't wear a de

Many practical barriers continue to exist for a blind individual who strives to live an independent and active life, despite decades of development of assistive technologies. This project addresses the following two most prominent challenges: (1) disparity in information-sharing among people with visual impairment and its limited understanding by the research community; and (2) lack of methods and tools for effectively addressing the disparity.


Visible to the public Multiple-Level Predictive Control of Mobile Cyber Physical Systems with Correlated Context


With the increasing popularity of mobile computing, cyber physical systems are merging into major mobile systems of our society, such as public transportation, supply chain systems, health and wellness, and taxi networks. Mobile CPSs interact with phenomena of interest at different locations and environments, and where the context information (e.g., network availability and connectivity) about these physical locations might not be available.
