Sensing people and mobile objects in indoor environments are key building blocks of many smart building applications. In this talk, I will share some recent results from my research in indoor localization and people sensing in buildings. We have developed new ways to use ultra sonic sensing to count and track people in buildings while ensuring privacy. We have made ultra-wide band radio based indoor localization more accurate and robust. I will also describe what we learned from evaluating these approaches on long and short-term deployments in buildings and on testbeds.
