OptoSense: Towards Ubiquitous Self-Powered Ambient Light Sensing Surfaces

Info about the Project

OptoSense is a ubiquitous Imaging Surface which conforms to everyday objects, harvests energy from ambient light, and senses a variety of human activities without compromising privacy. By leveraging organic semiconductor (OSC) optoelectronics with thin & flexible form factor, large-area compatibility, and highly customizable characteristics, we aim to develop distributed imaging technologies for human activity sensing which truly “weaves” into fabrics of everyday life.
