HiBo (Hierarchical backoff) compresses randomized contention overhead for high density wireless networks .. like IoT.
VibraPhone demonstrates the feasibility of using the vibration motor in mobile devices as a sound sensor, almost like a microphone.
Canoe trips were great fun... one canoe flipped but we all survived!
See demo here.
This paper envisions the possibility of injecting mobility into wireless infrastructure. See paper here.
This work was awarded best poster in MobiSys 2011. See paper here.
SafetyNet estimates the drone's 3D orientation using multiple GPS receivers ... offers a backup to IMU failures.
ArmTrak is designed to track the geometric motion of the human arm using only the inertial sensors on the smartwatch.
Mobile augmented reality (AR) has been an exciting, yet unrealized, vision. This paper attempts to complete the vision within the constraints
of today’s smartphones.
This paper proposes CrowdCast, a cloud-based framework to enable real-time analysis and prediction from streaming social data.
This paper describes WalkCompass, a system that exploits smartphone sensors to estimate the direction in which a user is walking.
This paper envisions a future in which smartphones can be inserted into toys, such as a teddy bear, to make them interactive to children. See paper here.

The most profound technologies are those that disappear - Mark Weiser.
He will join the CS department of Purdue University as a tenure track professor. Congratulations!
And now a researcher at HP Labs in Palo Alto. Congratulations, Puneet!
In this paper we explore the possibility of injecting mobility into wireless network infrastructure.
Insight develops techniques using which humans can be visually recognized. Complementary
to face recognition, Insight exploits the intuition that motion patterns and clothing colors may pose as a human fingerprint, adequate to discriminate
one individual from others.
This paper explores the feasibility of automatically extracting passwords from a user’s daily activity logs, such as her Facebook activity, phone activity etc.
This paper submits a hypothesis that smartphone/tablet accelerometers possess unique fingerprints, which can be exploited for tracking users.
Haitham Hassanieh is a new Assistant Professor in the ECE Department at UIUC. His research is in the area of computer networks and algorithms.
The goal of this project is to uniquely fingerprint an environment in the visual domain. See poster here.
This paper investigates the possibility of communicating through vibrations.
