    Superman See Through Walls with Wifi Devices

    See Through Walls With Wi-Fi Devices

    (Nov. 4, 2015)

    Cutting edge technology now gives Superman some competition. Scientists at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab have developed a device that uses WiFi signals to effectively see through walls and other obstacles, with the ability to identify which persons are standing behind it.

    This new technology coined RF Capture, is enhanced version of previous methods of capturing movements across a house – technology used by mothers to see their baby’s breathing and firefighters to determine if there are survivors in a burning building.

    MIT RF Capture with WiFi Device with silhouette

    MIT RF Capture with WiFi Device with silhouette

    How does RF Capture work? 

    RF-Capture works by transmitting wireless signals that, upon hitting a person standing behind a wall, are reflected off various body parts and then back to the device for analysis to piece together the whole image of people.

    • RF-Capture transmits radio waves that pass through physical objects
    • Radio signals reflect off whatever is on the other side and bounce back to RF-Capture
    • RF-Capture measures the intensity of the waves, among other variables
    • The device then uses a “coarse-to-fine algorithm” to create an accurate silhouette

    The video below shows how researchers captured consecutive time snapshots, before constructing the human silhouette.

    Researchers, as us at UAT, are excited about the future applications that this kind of wireless technology could provide.

    It’s incredible to think that lives could be saved with this sort of technology. Consider “an in-home device that can call 911 if it is capable of detecting that a family member has fallen unconscious” in a fire.

    RF Capture could also have applications in motion capture, allowing filmmakers to dispense with those silly sensor-covered suits currently in use by performers for doing special effects sequences.

    Have you been inside the New Technology Lab (NT Lab) lately? There are some new devices for UAT’s population of tech savvy individuals to use on campus. Stop in to the Bindery for a key to the NT Lab and get your innovative juices flowing with new technology!

    Kor-FX Gaming Vest: The Kor-FX is a haptic feedback vest that lets you feel the game you are playing or developing. As part of the Virtual Reality Station, students will be able to combine the vest with the Oculus Rift to create truly immersive experiences.

    Sphero Robotic Ball

    Sphero Robotic Ball

    Sphero: Sphero, an addition to the Mobile Development Station, will allow students to program a ball with a built in gyroscope. Students will be able to program games and other experiences that involve the robotic ball.

    Cube 3D Touch Stylus: The Touch Stylus is a haptic 3D drawing device currently located at the 3D Print and Scan Station. Students will be able to sculpt their 3D models using this pen and feel the model as they manipulate it.

    Epson BrightLink: The BrightLink is an interactive projector that allows students to manipulate the projection as if it were a tablet. Students will be able to map out their projects and collaborate with other students on a giant interactive screen.

    Perception Neuron Motion Capture Suit

    Perception Neuron Motion Capture Suit

    Perception Neuron: The Neuron is a 32-point wearable motion capture device set to be installed at the Virtual Reality station. Students will be able to motion capture themselves without needing a full motion capture setup and will be able to export their data to their Oculus Rift based games easily.

    Oculus Rift: A Virtual Reality headset that allows you to step into your favorite game, get immersed in a movie or take a virtual tour, with the aid of special electronic equipment like a helmet, headset or gloves with sensors.

    Epson Moverio Glasses: The Moverio glasses are an augmented reality display in a similar vein to Google Glass. It is powered by Android OS and will allow students at the Virtual Reality station to explore new ways to gamify the world.

    Don’t hesitate to ask for help in using any of these new devices- that’s why they are here – for students to use! Maker Tech Mike Syfritt is happy to assist students with any of the new gadgets in the NT Lab.
