We explore how sensor networks augment and mediate human experience, interaction and perception, while developing new sensing modalities and enabling technologies that create new forms of interactive experience and expression. Our current research encompasses the development and application of various types of sensor networks, energy harvesting and power management, and the technical foundation of ubiquitous computing. Our work is highlighted in diverse application areas, which have included automotive systems, smart highways, medical instrumentation, RFID, wearable computing, and interactive media.

Note: Deeper detail on most of our projects is available on our main group website -   http://resenv.media.mit.edu
