  • 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 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...

  • 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: Use engineering design and development skills for solving social problems and meeting social needs.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • To develop and implement new approaches with cognitive reasoning modules and advanced data and knowledge visualization to enhance the experience and usefulness of crowdsourced problem-solving.

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