  • To develop 2-D to 2-D tunneling structures to enable for smaller, faster, more capable microelectronic devices applied to a broad range of applications such as energy, RF, and sensing.

  • The Laboratory for Intelligent Decision and Autonomous Robots (LIDAR) at Georgia Tech focus on planning, control, and decision-making algorithms of highly dynamic, under-actuated, and human-cooperative robots in complex environments. The VIP Team will explore the challenging research topics in mechanical design, mechatronics, control algorithm design, and perception of dynamic legged...

  • This project, a collaboration between Mark Leibert (LMC) and Betty Whitaker (GTRI), brings together histories and concepts of visual culture and image making with explorations of technology and artificial intelligence. We are an artist and AI researcher exploring approaches to applying machine learning to create artistic images. Our team is analyzing the application of machine learning to...

  • To develop an automotive LiDAR system in support of the emerging technical area of vehicle autonomy and increased safety.

  • GOALS: To collect and analyze big data about bee-flower interactions on the Georgia Tech campus and beyond to inform property owners and policy makers about how land use can support pollinator health.

  • **Limited Admissions for the Spring 2021 Semester** Leverage advances in machine learning and data analytics to enable faster and more accurate calculations of chemical properties using quantum-mechanical techniques such as density functional theory (DFT).

  • Use design thinking and design behaviors in a team environment to: A: understand campus and community issues using an empathetic approach, B: engage with campus and external community members using a rapid prototyping methodology, and  C: implement change and design interventions that contribute to positive outcomes that create a novel world.

  • To discover how evolution acts on materials properties in microbial systems. Use experiments,  simulations, and analytical theory to elucidate how biological fitness and function emerge from physical principles.

  • At Georgia Tech, we live in an incubator for problem solving, scientific inquiry, and technological innovation, but the public at large is surprisingly ignorant about the STEM disciplines. We will build the Georgia Tech Mobile STEM Laboratory - a sustainable and continually growing infrastructure we’ll use to measurably impact this ignorance regionally and nationally. Ultimately, we’ll have...

  • There is a need for the development of new techniques to aide in the conservation of wildlife to prevent extinction and the decrease of biodiversity. Examples of such techniques include the use of drones to mitigate rhino poaching or low-cost equipment that can deter elephants...

  • Creation and analysis of a repository of humor collected via crowdsourcing and social network integration.

  • To discover physical principles of how animals move in complex, challenging environments. Use tools from physics, neuroscience, biomechanics, and robotics to extract mechanism of how animal and engineered systems move, especially with respect to stability, agility, and robustness.

  • To examine how small, low cost unmanned aerial vehicles can be used to deliver items, operate in constrained environments, and maximize efficiency.  To achieve this, we will develop electromechanical designs, avionics, and algorithms for small, low cost, aerial vehicles.  We will first focus on developing gliding vehicles that are catapult launched.  Once the platforms are...

  • To produce novel, creative media about recent scientific discoveries and engineering innovations. These include but are not limited to: interactive museum-style exhibitions, online articles and videos, and festival exhibits. Specifically, the team will create one exhibit or demo per semester, and each team member will publish bi-weekly in the online science magazine Charged. ...

  • The Student Cluster Competition team will focus on putting together a proposal each Spring to compete in Supercomputing’s “Student Cluster Competition”. This competition brings togethers teams from around the world to complete a series of challenges related to high-performance computing within a set time limit and power budget...

  • To create a collective of autonomous robots capable of physically collaborating on tasks such as: moving objects; constructing structures; playing sports; assisting human participants. The robot collective should operate autonomously with minimal intervention for long periods and learn from their operation and interactions over time.

  • This concept builds on a broader notion of psychological resilience or positive adaptation to adverse situations.
