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.
North Carolina State University researchers in ECE and Computer Science have developed and used a customized suite of technologies that allows a computer to train a dog autonomously, with the computer effectively responding to the dog based on the dog’s body language.
Five NC State students, including Alex Starnes from Electrical and Computer Engineering will head off around the globe as winners of prestigious Fulbright grants for the 2016-17 academic year.
Researchers in North Carolina State University’s Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering have developed a model that allows antenna designers to identify efficient configurations for antenna designs in minutes, rather than days.
