Power Disaggregation

When you get your home electricity bill every month, you just get an aggregate measure: you used this many kilowatt-hours, so we will charge you $X. But what if you instead received a detailed receipt that broke down how much energy you spent on each device?  

Network Localization and Navigation

Reliable and accurate localization of mobile nodes is a key enabler for numerous emerging applications in the commercial, public safety, and military sectors. Achieving such location-awareness by conventional techniques is challenging in harsh environments with limited infrastructures. This work proposes a new paradigm called network localization and navigation (NLN), in which mobile nodes exploit spatiotemporal network cooperation for positional inference.
