ThirdEye: Tracking UserWe have built a system that would enable the tracking of physical browsing by users in indoor spaces such as retail stores. In a retail store, tracking the physical aspects of a shopper’s behaviour like walking, dwelling, gazing, reaching out, etc. might give us deep insights into the shopper’s interests. Using a combination of a first-person vision enabled by smart glasses, and inertial sensing using both the glasses and a smartphone, we have designed techniques to track each of these physical aspects of...

Video of Ziria WiFi PHY demo. In this demo one node is sending 1600B packets continuously, with a small gap, and the other node is logging the reception of these packets. Packets are sent at the fixed data rate, first at 6 Mbps and then at 18 Mbps (we currently implemented only BPSK and QPSK modulations). There are no ACKs implemented at the moment and the receiver looks for packet ID in the packets to estimate the number of missed packets. In all cases, the packet reception rate is above 90%. Channel...
