  • 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...

  • To develop a system that will be able to drive like an expert human driver. In order to achieve this, we will initially monitor the driving styles of several drivers using a high-fidelity driving simulator. Based on the measurements, we will be able to classify drivers according to their skill using graphical inference models. We will then develop suitable models for drivers’ actions and...

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

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • To develop a framework that fundamentally alters the development of algorithms. We desire to create an automated method that starts with the best human algorithms and then dispassionately develops hybrid algorithms that outperform existing methods. Next, we prove that these algorithms can also be studied by humans for inspiration in development of new algorithm and optimization methods. ...

  • 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,...

  • To design, build, defend, and race an open-wheel formula-style vehicle in the annual Formula SAE competition.

  • ** Previous experience with this team is required **

  • Design, build and launch a reusable rocket with a scientific or engineering payload to one mile above ground level.

  • 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...

  • To build airborne observation platforms equipped with cameras and electromagnetic sensors, to observe lightning and other electrical activity in the atmosphere from high altitude (100,000 ft).

  • 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...

  • NASA, Georgia Tech, and GTRI are developing energy technologies to support future missions to Mars. The VIP M.A.R.S. Team will research, develop, and test renewable energy systems in collaboration with scientists and engineers at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Moon and Mars offer difficult challenges to NASA’s ambitious plan for exploration, including acquisition of reliable and...

  • 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 built environment plays a fundamental role in hour daily life. It impacts our health, performance, stress levels, social relations, and even the contagion of COVID-19. This project explores expanding the Building Performance Analytics towards a dynamic spatiotemporal framework, studying the characteristics of spaces combined with human activities and organizational processes that...

  • Create, fabricate, and flight test unmanned air vehicles intended for a special purpose or technology demonstration.

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