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.


February is the month of birthdays at Signal Kinetics. This week, happy birthday to our own @SayedSaadAfzal! #cake #cakeday 🍰

“A seed grant for a risky idea that is mission-driven goes a long way” 💡

-- @fadeladib, on @jwafs_mit’s signature seed grant program. It has catalyzed food & water research at @medialab while inspiring faculty to explore their passions. http://bit.ly/3azJ6Un

Congratulations to @MIT_SK_Lab head @fadeladib, who is among eight MIT recipients of the 2021 Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship. https://www.media.mit.edu/posts/fadel-adbib/

Hello Japan! Last night we kicked off our #MicroLogistics collab with colleagues halfway around the globe from @GlobalNTT, Toppan, and Toppan Forms! Excited to work together on this endeavor. 🇯🇵🤝🇺🇸
