  • Reynolds, Matthew S. (Matthew Stephen), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    This thesis concerns the application of electromagnetic wave propagation to the problem of indoor radiolocation. Determining the location of people and objects relative to their environment is crucial for asset tracking, ...
  • Linder, Natan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    For quite some time, researchers and designers in the field of human computer interaction have strived to better integrate information interfaces into our physical environment. They envisioned a future where computing and ...
  • Eagle, Nathan Norfleet (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The study of complex social systems has traditionally been an arduous process, involving extensive surveys, interviews, ethnographic studies, or analysis of online behavior. Today, however, it is possible to use the ...
  • Krom, Matthew Wayne (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1996)
  • Dobson, Kelly E. (Kelly Elizabeth), 1970- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Machine Therapy is a new practice combining art, design, psychoanalysis, and engineering work in ways that access and reveal the vital, though often unnoticed, relevance of people's interactions and relationships with ...
  • Platte, Sarah Lisette (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Expert or fraud? Opinions differ widely when it comes to the profession of the conductor. The powerful person in front of an orchestra or a choir attracts both hate and admiration, but which influence do a conductor's ...
  • Peek, Nadya (Nadya Meile) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Rapid prototyping has been in the limelight for the past decade. 3D printers have an evocative name that promises production of complex parts on demand. Yet current practice doesn't quite deliver on these promises of ...
  • Tseng, Tiffany (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Much of what we design today is mediated by digital processes, from digital tools and software used to create tangible and virtual artifacts, to online resources and communities that enable people to exchange design ...
  • Sethi, Srishti (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Deep personal connections foster rich learning. Making such connections is one of the most valuable benefits of attending face-to-face conferences. Online technologies offer the opportunity to meet with more people at a ...
  • Roque, Ricarose Vallarta (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This thesis explores how we can design learning environments to support broad participation in creative collaboration-that is, the process of working together on the construction of an artifact. I describe and analyze the ...
  • Morris, Robert, S.M. (Robert Randall). Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Many individuals diagnosed with autism experience auditory sensitivity - a condition that can cause irritation, pain, and, in some cases, profound fear. Efforts have been made to manage sound sensitivities in autism, but ...
  • Ntabathia, Jude (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The internet has enabled people with few or no formal qualifications to create, share and disseminate cartographic information. One of the best platforms that has empowered citizens to create cartographic data is OpenStreetMap. ...
  • Papanikolaou, Dimitrios, M.S. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Mobility on Demand (MOD) systems allow users to pick-up and drop-off vehicles (bikes, automobiles) ubiquitously in a network of parking stations. Asymmetric demand patterns cause unbalanced fleet allocation decreasing level ...
  • Smith, Casey Wayne, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    A growing number of artists are using new electronic and computational technologies for the creation of interactive, kinetic, and behavior-based art. However, users without technical backgrounds often find that there is ...
  • Vink, Luke (Luke Alexander Jozef) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Years after the inception of the Radical Atoms vision, significant advances in technology have seen to dynamic tangible interfaces that bridge the biological and micromechanical to enable radical physical interaction with ...
  • Coelho, Marcelo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    At the boundary between people, objects and spaces, we encounter a broad range of surfaces. Their properties perform functional roles such as permeability, comfort or illumination, while conveying information such as an ...
  • Coelho, Marcelo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Materials that embody computational properties are reshaping the ways in which we design, interact and communicate. This thesis looks at the topic of form transformation and how to bring the programmability and versatility ...
  • Ou, Jifei (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis takes a material perspective on designing transformable interfaces. The structure of material and mechanical properties such as stiffness, can determine not only its static performances, but also, with the help ...
  • Greenwald, Scott Wilkins (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    A longstanding trend in supercomputing is that as supercomputers scale, they become more difficult to program in a way that fully utilizes their parallel processing capabilities. At the same time they become more power-hungry ...
  • Sano, Akane (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    This thesis carries out a series of studies and develops a methodology and tools to measure and analyze ambulatory physiological, behavioral and social data from wearable sensors and mobile phones with trait data such as ...
