Research Projects

Summer 2018
Long-range RFID
  • Today‚Äôs commercial passive RFIDs report ranges of 5-10 meters at best. This reveals blind zones for RFIDs to be detected in warehouses, stores and factories today. We present PushID which achieves an 8x improvement in range over commercial RFID systems.
  • USENIX NSDI 2019, Boston, USA. See relevant materials here.

Still more to be updated. :)
