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.

Electronic pill can relay diagnostic information or release drugs

Researchers have designed an ingestible capsule that can be controlled using Bluetooth wireless technology. The capsule, which can be customized to deliver drugs, sense environmental conditions, or both, can reside in the stomach for at least a month, transmitting information and responding to instructions from a user's smartphone.

3D printing cells to produce human tissue

With today's technology, we can 3-D-print sculptures, mechanical parts, prosthetics, even guns and food. But a team of biomedical engineers have developed a method to 3-D-print cells to produce human tissue such as ligaments and tendons, a process that will greatly improve a patient's recovery.

Wearables powered by body movements

A wearable energy-harvesting device could generate energy from the swing of an arm while walking or jogging, according to a team of researchers. The device, about the size of a wristwatch, produces enough power to run a personal health monitoring system.

Non-toxic material that generates electricity through hot and cold

Thanks to the discovery of a new material, jewelry such as a ring and your body heat could generate enough electricity to power a body sensor, or a cooking pan could charge a cellphone in just a few hours.

Stabilising energy storage

Because the sun doesn't always shine, solar utilities need a way to store extra charge for a rainy day. The same goes for wind power facilities, since the wind doesn't always blow. To take full advantage of renewable energy, electrical grids need large batteries that can store the power coming from wind and solar installations until it is needed.
