  • Using artificial intelligence (AI)-based approaches (especially manifold learning) for understanding the delicate rules of nature and utilizing them for forming innovative software- and hardware-based tools for addressing the major challenges in a wide range of disciplines. ...

  • 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...

  • 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. ...

  • To create autonomous microrobots that can traverse biological barriers within the body by mimicking microorganisms.

  • 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.).

  • This team will return Fall 2021 ...

  • 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.

  • 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 address the unique clinical needs of resource-limited environments through the development of equipment and apps that support (and can be maintained by) local hospitals. A key design constraint will be the use of equipment and technologies that can be maintained and repaired by the hospitals that use them. This includes using locally sourced equipment and developing apps that can run on...

  • Develop, evaluate and deploy health analytics applications that can help doctors and patients to make better and healthy decisions.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • The EPIC (Exoskeleton and Prosthesis Intelligent Controls) Lab research areas include automation & mechatronics and bioengineering with a focus on the control of powered robotic prostheses and exoskeletons to assist human movement. We implement biological signal processing, intent recognition, and control systems based on EMG and mechanical sensors to improve human-machine capabilities....

  • Develop creative robots that can listen to, play, and improvise music.

  • 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 study soft, biocompatible materials to design low-profile, unobtrusive wearable and implantable electronics for advancing human healthcare and wellness.

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