MIT's "Kinect of the Future" Can Track You Through Walls [Technology]
posted October 16 2013 7:13.45 by spic0m




The ability to passively track people within a given space is every retailer's dream (and every conspiracy theorist's nightmare). Those dreams recently took a step closer to reality with the debut of a new people-tracking system from MIT.

Unveiled at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Laboratory (CSAIL), the system works much like Microsoft's popular Kinect motion-tracking accessory in that both systems are capable of following a human target's location throughout a room without the need for the subject to hold a transmitter. The Kinect is currently far more precise that MIT's prototype, able to track multiple targets and even read lips from across a room, but the MIT device has the advantage of being able to track people on the other side of walls.
