WiSE Lab is a systems research group in 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 are interested in 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 applications such as building energy management, micro-grid management, critical infrastructure monitoring, large-scale environmental sensing and mobile computing.
