The Responsive Environments group explores how diverse and distributed sensors 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. The group's current research encompasses the development and application of various types of sensor substrates and networks, energy harvesting and power management, sensor representation in virtual and augmented reality, sensor-based inference, interactive systems and HCI, and the technical foundation of the Internet of Things. Their work is highlighted in diverse application areas and is applied across wide scales, spanning wearable systems, smart buildings, environmental sensing, and space missions.
