Yes, you heard right! RF-Pose can let you see behind solid wall, soon you can see behind the walls using this new technology. RF-Pose is a device that uses wireless signals to see through walls. Computer scientists at Artificial Laboratory at MIT have successfully designed a mechanism that can see people through walls.
RF-Pose uses radio frequency devices hooked up to a neural network to sense people’s movement and postures behind walls and other obstacles.
The team trained their AI to recognise the motions of humans using recorded footage as well as using signals reflected of people’s bodies to show the kind of images certain postures would generate. Now, the AI can use only reflected wireless signals to identify motions and postures and represent them using stick figures
This technology is seen as a less intrusive way to monitor people for health and safety purposes for example, if an elderly person or a sick person has a risk of falling, you may want to make sure they don’t by using this technology for their surveillance. It could be installed in the homes of the elderly, to monitor their movement and send an alert when they fall down or show signs of physical distress. It could also be used to ensure Alzheimer patients stay within the safety of their walls instead of venturing outdoors alone.
Right now, the technology is about 83 percent accurate at identifying people in large groups of upto 100. Because of this, not only RF-Pose can let you see behind solid wall it could also serve as an addition to search-and-rescue operations, like those the military or police might carry out in populated areas, where it’s important to know who you’re looking for. In fact, the technology could be greatly improved in future, to the point where the device could detect even slight movements like a shaking hand, and display 3D images of it.
