Research at the University of Utah is heavily involved in using the radio channel for location, location distinction, and wireless network security applications. This talk represents work led by Profs. Sneha K.
Kasera in the School of Computing and Neal Patwari in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The lab combines the research efforts of a dozen Master's and Ph.D. students in both Engineering and Computer Science. The joint lab has been investigating wireless networking technologies for the past two years, and has had success in both academic and commercial efforts. Some of these successes include winning the student research demo competition at the highly selective ACM MobiCom conference, being awarded a $70k Technology Commercialization Grant to develop location distinction technologies, and IP protection, including one patent pending and four provisional patents.

Introducing a Protocol for Using Robotic Pets in Memory Care

You might think it was a typical therapy session at a long-term care facility. In a quiet room, a therapist sets down a pet carrier, brings out a cat, and sets it on a resident's lap. As the resident gently strokes the cat's fur, it purrs, and the therapist asks the resident questions about their childhood pets, accessing long-ago memories.

Electrical Current Instead of Radiation in Diagnosing Breast Cancer

A safe, painless diagnostic tool for detecting breast cancer that uses a low electrical current instead of radiation. Mammograms are a safe, effective way to detect the presence of breast cancer in women. But doctors recommend most females should start getting mammograms after the age of 40 in part because the procedure involves small doses of ionizing radiation.

Tracking Muscle Activity with Clothes on Your Back

Bioelectrical sensors on the skin can be used to measure electrical signals in the body, like heart activity and muscle contraction. While that provides valuable information for clinicians, current bioelectrical sensor technology can be ineffective, uncomfortable, expensive, and difficult to manufacture.
