Welcome to the SBUWear Research Group

We are a research group at the Computer Science Department of Stony Brook University. The goal of this work is to use UI Virtualization to (a) easily extend smartphone applications to wearable devices, and (b) improve power consumption and accessibility.

To this end, we have developed systems that can generate wearable apps with limited developer effort(UIWear), design an Ultra Low Power Mode for phones by enables screenless interaction (ULPM), and enable users with visual impairments to interact with their smartphones while conserving power and improving privacy (DarkReader). See Research.

We are grateful for funding and support from Stony Brook University, and the NSF.
