The Columbia Intelligent and Connected Systems Laboratory (ICSL) is dedicated to the exploration and advancement of cross-cutting fields including Cyber-Physical Systems, Internet of Things, and AI at the Edge.

Our primary goal is to vastly improve the lives of everyday people by sensing the physical world in its many forms, analyzing physical data, providing insightful feedback, and intelligently optimize city-scale systems. Current research directions involve smart and sustainable buildings, mobile and wearable systems, environmental monitoring and control, connected health and fitness, and urban safety.

With generous support from the National Science Foundation, we are pursuing safety and sustainability in cities through a pedestrian safety system and a personal energy footprinting system. Projects driven by concrete needs include textile-based perspiration sensing, mosquito breeding ground detection, leg shaking monitoring, wearable sunburn monitor, low-cost emotion sensing, and intelligent and privacy-preserving pillbox.
