This Works in Progress department discusses five projects covering various research topics. The first two projects are sensor network oriented: a Java MIDP-based sensor network platform and a platform for monitoring distributed power generation systems. The third is a wearable computing application for optimizing the circuit-training process for a group of athletes. The final two projects introduce pervasive computing into medical environments with a combined electronic and paper medical charting system and an interactive, multimodal, haptic-enabled medical training simulator. This department is part of a special issue on Building a Sensor-Rich World.
