Aquabots will explore new research in maritime robotics including navigation of underwater and surface vehicles, mapping and exploration underwater, and other challenging maritime robotic technologies.
Model crack propagation, crack networks, particle crushing, and healing in salt rock; predict soil and rock THCM behavior during heat and fluid injection and extraction; design new geomaterials to optimize the fuel cycle; and recommend strategies for resource and waste management.
Goals: To build a suite of mobile applications for iOS and Android devices that will be used to administer and collect data from individuals who have suffered brain traumas with lingering effects (e.g., stroke leading to Aphasia, Alzheimer’s, etc.).
To develop course materials and software for teaching hands-on, inquiry-based introductory physics in a Massive Online Open Course (MOOC). We will use a novel combination of open-source software, calibrated peer review, and interactive online lectures to
To enhance spectrum utilization, enable improved use of smart devices (smartphones, tablets), and create intelligent mechanisms for debugging, monitoring, policing and enhancing all types of wireless communications through the use of software defined radi
Design, test, and use systems to enhance student learning in Tech courses by applying techniques that include video and data mining, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and human-computer interfaces.
To develop robotic sensing platforms for environmental and other monitoring tasks such as oil spill surveys, environmental clean-ups, etc. To develop autonomy solutions for airborne, maritime, and other mobile sensing networks.
To develop human guided robotic technologies that enhance/facilitate the work at construction sites. The goal is to design semi-autonomous robots that construction workers could control to execute the initial construction phases of a building, such as digging (earth-forming) and foundation construction.
