Our Current Research Focuses on Three Areas

Ocean IoT

Including batteryless subsea IoT, underwater-to-air communications, and localization/robotic navigation, our technologies enable new applications in climate and ecological monitoring, aquaculture, energy, and robotic navigation.

Digital Health

Including wireless micro-implants and wireless/contactless physiological sensing, our innovations pave the way for long-term monitoring cardiovascular and gastrointestinal monitoring, as well as novel drug delivery.

Robotics & RFID

Including micro-location for robotics and supply chain applications, our research focuses on enabling robotics to perform novel tasks that have not been feasible before and optimize supply chain micro-logistics.

Student Spotlight

Osvy Rodriguez, a UROP in the Signal Kinetics group, recounts his journey to MIT and how he began working with Signal Kinetics group head Fadel Adib on underwater-to-air communication technology that paves the way for wireless IoT sensors. Osvy recently won the 2021 Outstanding UROP Award.
