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.
Researchers at NC State have developed an integrated, wearable system that monitors a user’s environment, heart rate and other physical attributes with the goal of predicting and preventing asthma attacks. The researchers plan to begin testing the system on a larger subject population this summer.
Victor Veliadis, a senior advisory engineer for Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems, has been named the chief technology officer for PowerAmerica, the public-private power electronics institute hosted on Centennial Campus.
Engineering researchers led by Dr. Paul Franzon, have developed a suite of techniques that allow them to create passive radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags that are 25 percent smaller and less expensive.
