  • Robbel, Philipp (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Many problems of economic and societal interest in today's world involve tasks that are inherently distributed in nature. Whether it be the efficient control of robotic warehouses or delivery drones, distributed computing ...
  • Li, Wu-Hsi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this dissertation research, we explore ways of using audio on AR applications, as it is especially suitable for mobile users when their eyes and hands are not necessarily available and they have limited attention capacity. ...
  • Fletcher, Richard R. (Richard Ribon) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    Several implementations of chipless RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags are presented and discussed as low-cost alternatives to chip-based RFID tags and sensors. An overview of present-day near-field electromagnetic ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Patten, James McMichael, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This thesis presents a new type of human-computer interface based on mechanical constraints that combines some of the tactile feedback and affordances of mechanical systems with the abstract computational power of modern ...
  • Torpey, Peter Alexander (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Media Scores provide a theoretical and technical means to orchestrate multiple modalities in the creation of expressive works of art and performance. New technologies afford numerous opportunities to tell stories and create ...
  • Davis, Marc Eliot (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Mazalek, Alexandra, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    As digital entertainment applications evolve, there is a need for new kinds of platforms that can support sociable media interactions for everyday consumers. This thesis demonstrates an extensible method and sensing framework ...
  • Zhao, Nan, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    This dissertation introduces a controller for a context-aware office space that seamlessly and continuously transforms itself to support the activities of its occupants. Properties of the workspace, such as light, sound, ...
  • Arroyo Acosta, Ernesto, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Multitasking environments cause people to be interrupted constantly, often disrupting their ongoing activities and impeding reaching their goals. This thesis presents a disruption reducing approach designed to support the ...
  • DeVaul, Richard W. (Richard Wayne), 1971- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    This thesis documents a body of wearable computing research surrounding the development of the Memory Glasses, a new type of proactive memory support technology. The Memory Glasses combines features of existing memory ...
  • Zinman, Aaron Robert (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Every day, millions of people encounter strangers online. We read their medical advice, buy their products, and ask them out on dates. Yet our views of them are very limited; we see individual communication acts rather ...
  • Talei Franzesi, Giovanni (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Neuronal action potentials ('spikes') are thought to be the fundamental units of information in the brain, hence the ability to record them and to understand their genesis is crucial to our comprehension of the biological ...
