E-Eye: Hidden E-device Recognition Through mmWave Nonlinear Effects

- Hidden e-devices can be dangerous (e.g., disguised bombs & evasdropping).
- Current solutions: cost-inefficient & invasive (e.g., x-ray imaging).
- E-Eye:
- Low-cost & portable mmWave probe inducing the nonlinear response of e-devices.
- Fine-grained signal analysis for extracting the e-devices' identitities.
- Well-designed evaluation with various attack schemes.

SITUG: Sensor-equipped Insole Based TUG Analysis

- Falls are the leading cause of injuries in older population.
- TUG: A balance assessment widely used to estimate fall risk.
- Current TUG systems: bulky & unhandy (e.g., multi sensor attachments).
- SITUG:
- Wearable sensor-embeded insole for data sampling.
- User-friendly smartphone app (i.e., real-time instructions & reports).
- Competent TUG data analysis in cloud server.

mRehab: A Rehabilitation System Powered by 3D-printing Augmented Smartphone

- Impairments following stroke is one of the leading causes of disability.
- Patients have low adherence on at-home rehab exercise programs.
- Current situations: static, tedious setup & lack of informatic reports.
- mRehab [Project website]:
- ADL orientated: Activities of Daily Living is great for functional recovery.
- Smartphone: Real-time visual, audio rehab instructions and reports.
- 3D-printing: Reshape the rigid form of smartphone for ADL simulation.
- Smartphone + 3D-printing: Customizable, portable & informatic rehab tools.

Batteryfree & Wireless Personal UV Exposure Tracker

- UV exposure is strongly related to a variety of ocular and skin diseases.
- Existing exposure trackers target at unobtrusive and in-situ monitoring.
- The constraint is the limitation of battery capacity.
- Batteryfree is challenging due to the power-hungry sensors & wireless transit.
- The first self-powered prototype for wireless UV exposure tracking.

Inclusive User Interface via Respiration Analysis

- Keyboards and mouses are not applicable for users with disabilities.
- Solutions are lack of stability &/ privacy-preservation.
-- (e.g., brain-computer interface & eye movements)
- Respiration is a universal, inconspicuous & controllable physiology feature.
- This study presents a proof-of-concept respiration-based inclusive interface.
- A RF radar is deployed for respiratory sensing in a secure manner.

Customizable Framework for Mobile Health Studies

- Smart health is increasingly utilized in medical studies.
- Researchers struggle with having the proper smart health applications.
- Customizable framework:
- Researchers customize applications by designing simple study packages.
- A study package contains common-use files (Json & CSV).
- The framework auto configures the packages into the desired apps.
