As computing technology continues to become increasingly pervasive and ubiquitous, we envision the development of environments that can sense what we are doing and support our daily activities. In this article, we outline our efforts toward building such environments and discuss the importance of a sensing and signal-understanding infrastructure that leads to awareness of what is happening in an environment and how it can best be supported. Such an infrastructure supports both high- and low-end data transmission and processing, while allowing for detailed interpretation, modeling and recognition from sensed information. We are currently prototyping several aware environments to aid in the development and study of such sensing and computation in real-world settings
