The recent proliferation of acoustic devices, ranging from voice assistants to wearable health monitors, is leading to a sensing ecosystem around us – referred to as the Internet of Acoustic Things or IoAT. My research focuses on developing hardware-software building blocks that enable new capabilities for this emerging future. In this talk, I will sample some of my projects. For instance, (1) I will demonstrate carefully designed sounds that are completely inaudible to humans but recordable by all microphones.

One vision of Internet of Things (IoT) is to provide seamless connectivity and sensing. IoT devices are deployed densely in space to enable ubiquitous intelligence; and are connected wirelessly to support high-throughput data exchange. These devices are also becoming increasingly mobile, such as IoT-powered inventory management, personal robots and autonomous cars. However, the current network stack lacks primitives to support the desired connectivity, management and services of densely deployed mobile IoT devices.
