Anthony Rowe, an assistant research professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, knows exactly how much energy his home appliances use. He can pull up an energy profile for his refrigerator to make sure it is working correctly and can even turn on his bedroom light from his office. It's all part of Rowe's research, aimed at generating awareness about energy use. Rowe's home appliances are all connected to wireless sensor nodes, individual sensors that gather remote informa
