We continue working with the Welch group at U of L on tracking appliance usage in homes and offices. The goal is forĀ individuals to track their own energy consumption with mobile sensors. Here’s Dr. Welch’s Ph.D. student Anand Kulkarni running an appliance near a copper plane antenna to pick up its electromagnetic field (EMF) signature. Five appliances were classified using a decision tree algorithm. For more, seeĀ IEEE Sensors Journal:
