Environmental Sensing using Passive WiFi Properties

Principal Investigator:

Dr. Striegel, Department of Computer Science and Engineering

Project Summary:

Beyond serving as an essential part of connectivity for our various smart devices, WiFi also can be helpful in providing environmental context such as the likely presence of people using devices, the density of devices being used, and changes in the nearby environment. The focus of this project is to explore the extent to which vehicle-mounted WiFi sensing could help better discern important environmental cues that are of interest to researchers and government entities.

Student’s Role:

The REU student will help gather data, process, analyze, and visualize data from our WiFi gathering tools and help design a next-generation sensing platform.
