  • Advance the fundamental science in the assessment of natural and man-made hazards (e.g. earthquakes, landslides, liquefaction, sea-level rise, hazards in tailing dams, heap leach pads, coal ash facilities) through novel developments in performance-based and risk engineering. ...

  • The main goal of the ACT (Autonomous and Connected Transportation) Lab is to understand interactions between drivers/travelers, emerging vehicular technologies related to connectivity and autonomy, and novel infrastructure designs using a driving simulator environment, analytical modeling, and field test tracks. Using the collected data, we seek to develop analytical models and perform data...

  • For students to learn the theory and gain the skills necessary to fabricate next-generation batteries for EVs, spacecraft, and Smart Cities infrastructure.

  • Enable the creation of augmented-reality applications and experiences using a wide range of delivery platforms and AR technologies. Current projects use Argon, an augmented reality software suite developed at Georgia Tech that is both a Javascript/HTML5 framework and a set of browsers and tools.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Despite decades of efforts there has been little progress in recruiting a US National Park Service workforce that reflects the increasingly diverse and multi-cultural American public. This VIP aims to establish a GT Public Innovation Center (PIC) as a means to increase the diversity and career opportunities with the National Park Service and other federal agencies, starting with Yellowstone....

  • This VIP takes as its main focus Georgia Tech’s new Living Building – the Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design – and its efforts to advance social equity as a key part of building and operating a sustainable building. Within the Living Building Challenge (LBC), we focus on improving - and re-defining - the

  • We are currently developing a drone delivery system that could be used to deliver small packages on Georgia Tech campus. Assembly of the drone and implementation of package pickup mechanism are nearly complete. Flight testing will begin soon. Upcoming tasks include development of consumer delivery app, construction of delivery station prototype, planning and performance of flight testing,...

  • 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...

  • To improve health outcomes, nutrition, and general living conditions in developing nations and resource-limited environments through a variety of key technologies. These solutions include: sensors for sanitation in challenging environments, improving access to...

  • Internet of things (IOT) has the potential to revolutionize the healthcare industry. Thus far, most IOT applications focus on improving monitoring and physiological sensing of healthcare and patient care; however, the next generation of healthcare technologies will focus on multiplexed points of care testing, diagnostics, and treatment. The goal of this course is to engage students to explore...

  • On January 29, 2018, the ten million acre Patagonia National Park system was born. The goal of this VIP project is to develop and execute a Strategic Sustainability Plan for this new park in collaboration with the Chilean government, US philanthropic organizations, and Yellowstone National Park. Themes include water and energy, transportation, education and communication, waste management,...

  • To develop the data and decision science to improve mobility and accessibility in Atlanta.

  • 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. ...

  • To develop smart city infrastructure health condition monitoring, detection, and diagnosis with the use of emerging technologies (e.g. smart phones, 2D imaging, 3D laser, LiDAR, UAV, GPS/GIS, crowdsourcing, voice recognition, etc.) with artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, pattern recognition, signal processing, multi-source/scale/frequency/resolution data fusion, and...

  • Design and deploy smartphone apps/games, websites, wireless networks, and sensor networks to gather and deliver game and venue information to football fans in the stadium on gameday.

  • Energy has become one of the world's biggest engineering challenges. Current carbon-based energy supply faces conventional reserves depletion and climatic hurdles. The goal of this project is to address enhanced subsurface energy recovery and associated environmental mitigation from a geoengineering perspective. The team will study fundamental hydro-thermo-chemo-bio-mechanical properties of...

  • 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. By exploring and integrating technologies such as embedded computing for automation,...
