Visible to the public Building Information, Inhabitant, Interaction and Intelligent Integrated Modeling

Our buildings are broken. Each year we spend over $400B to power, heat and cool our buildings. Moreover, buildings are the largest source of environmental emissions in the US. As a result, even a modest improvement in energy efficiency of the nation's building stock would result in substantial economic and environmental benefits. In this project, we focus on driving energy efficiency in commercial buildings because this sector represents a substantial portion of the energy usage and costs within the overall building sector.

Visible to the public EAGER: Detecting and Addressing Adverse Dependencies Across Human-in-the-Loop In-Home Medical Apps

Abstract:

Millions of mobile applications (apps) are being developed in domains such as energy, health, security, and entertainment. The US FDA expects that there will be 500 million smart phone users downloading healthcare related apps by the end of 2015. Many of these apps will perform interventions to control human physiological parameters such as blood pressure and heart rate.

Visible to the public CPS: Synergy: Sensor Network-based Lower-Limb Prosthesis Optimization and Control

Abstract:

Objective: A powered prosthesis is one of typical cyber-physical systems (CPS) with a human-in-the- loop. The human and prosthesis interaction is highly complicated; although the human user could learn to manipulate the prosthesis, increased effort from the user would be required. The prosthesis requires tuning to minimize the user's energy expenditure such that the user can use of and interact with the prosthesis effortlessly and with comfort.
