Researchers at NC State ECE are launching a project aimed at researching and developing high-performance communications, networking and air traffic management (ATM) systems, including navigation and surveillance for both manned aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
This is a guest post by Edgar Lobaton – Autonomous systems are becoming a reality in our everyday lives. A few examples that most of us have seen in the news include autonomous vehicles such as the Google Car, and autonomous stores such as Amazon Go. All of these systems require sophisticated sensing, machine learning and artificial intelligence in order to make them work, which fascinates me.
A new study using complex computational models finds that smart solid-state transformers (SSTs) could be used to make a stable, reliable “smart grid” – allowing the power distribution system to route renewable energy from homes and businesses into the power grid.
In a proof-of-concept study, engineers at NC State University’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering have designed a flexible thermoelectric energy harvester that has the potential to rival the effectiveness of existing power wearable electronic devices using body heat as the only source of energy.
Researchers from North Carolina State University’s Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering have developed an energy-efficient technique for accurately tracking a user’s physical activity based on data from wearable devices.
10 finalists in the Graduate School’s second annual 3 Minute Thesis competition will demonstrate who is most capable of describing their Ph.D. research in just three minutes and with only one slide. Ph.D. candidates who have completed their confirmation milestone, was narrowed to 10 finalists, including one from Electrical and Computer Engineering – Tanvir Arafat Khan.
Computer science and electrical engineering researchers have made an effort to improve service dogs’ signals to companions.
NC State forms NSF-Funded Center for Advanced Electronics Through Machine Learning With UIUC and Georgia Tech
North Carolina State University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Georgia Tech are forming a center that aims to speed up design and verification of microelectronic circuits and systems, reducing development costs and time-to-market for manufacturers of microelectronic products, especially integrated circuits. The center is funded for five years through the National Science Foundation’s Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRC) program, and by the industrial members of the center.
In a partnership melding neuroscience and electrical engineering, researchers from UNC-Chapel Hill and NC State University have developed a new technology that will allow neuroscientists to capture images of the brain almost 10 times larger than previously possible.
