1. The MIT Mobile Experience Laboratory, in partnership with the Provincia di Brescia - Italy - is developing a sustainable ride-sharing system for youth that utilizes wearable media.

    The system, with its main components of social networking, reputation management, referrals and geopositioning makes it possible to coordinate the matching of drivers and passengers with preferences entered online in user profiles.

    The system can detect successful ride-shares and will reward participants accordingly, thereby providing an incentive to continue using the system. In addition to promoting social sustainability, the system also serves to prevent driving under the influence of alcohol.

    The system is designed as open platform and promote social connection and trust, and wish to strenght the communication among communities and with institutions.

  2. The Connected Home of the future will incorporate an integrated approach to buildings and their interaction with occupants, the local community, and beyond. This demonstration of the Connected Home of the future incorporates smart energy solutions, automated services and efficiency measures to aid citizens lead more sustainable lives.

    Technologies such as a Personal Travel Assistant, energy monitoring tools, TelePresence and social networking interactions, and energy grids for micro generation of energy across the urban community illustrate how citizens can play a positive and sustainable role in their urban landscape.

    Connected Urban Development

    The following proof of concept studies are intended as future visions of the utilization of CUD pilot programs in urban environments. These visions of connected and sustainable urban development were created by MIT Mobile Experience Lab in collaboration with Cisco Systems - Internet Business Solutions Group.

  3. Future near-field communication (NFC) usages in every-day life

    Near-Field Communication is a short-range high-frequency wireless communication technology which enables the exchange of data between devices over approximately 10-cm distance. Current usages include mobile ticketing on public transportation systems, mobile payment, smart postering, and bluetooth pairing.

    For this project, MIT Mobile Experience Lab imagined future scenarios on NFC technology in the specific context of Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus.
