News!

Our group won the best paper award from ICDCS 2018 (1 out of 378 submissions) for work titled "Symbol-level Cross-technology Communication via Payload Encoding". This work demonstrates the feasibility of reverse cross-technology communication from low-end devices (ZigBee) to high-end devices (Wi-Fi)

Our group won the best paper award from MobiCom 2017 (1 out of 186 submissions) for work titled "WEBee: Physical-Layer Cross-Technology Communication via Emulation". WEBee video can be found here . WEBee release and technical support can be found here . Here are the slides and conference talk video .

Our group won the best paper award from SenSys 2017 (1 out of 151 submissions) for work titled "SmartLight: Light-weight 3D Indoor Localization Using a Single LED Lamp". It is the first pure digital approach for 3D indoor localization.

Congratulations to Desheng Zhang for successfully landing tenure-track assistant professorship in Rutgers University (US News Rank 34).  So far, eight students from the group joined reputable universities as tenure-track assistant professors in the first employment.

Congratulations to Song Min Kim for successfully landing tenure-track assistant professorship in George Manson University (US News Rank 67). 

I will recruit multiple Ph.D. students fall 2018. If you are self-motivated, diligent with a strong system background and (of course) interested, please mention my name in the cover letter of the application package to the department. more information about our MiNDs group, please check http://tianhe.cs.umn.edu, Thanks!
