WiSE Lab is a research group within the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Carnegie Mellon University that focuses on the platforms, protocols and processing techniques that support networked embedded systems. We work on a broad range of topics including: operating system design, wireless networking, sensing technologies, real-time scheduling, time synchronization and localization. We apply our work to real world applications such as building/home energy management, critical infrastructure monitoring, large-scale environmental sensing and mobile computing. As part of this effort, we strive to transition our research into community accessible open-source hardware and software platforms that can be built upon and extended by others.
