Researchers at the Nanosystems Engineering Research Center for Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST) – a National Science Foundation (NSF) Engineering Research Center (ERC) led by NC State – are working to pull these wearables into the future through dramatic reduction in power consumption and novel sensor and low-power computing technologies.
FREEDM, a National Science Foundation (NSF) Engineering Research Center (ERC) headquartered on Centennial Campus, received positive feedback from NSF during a spring site visit and learned that the center will be fully funded through year 10.
ECE researchers have developed software using two new techniques to help computer chip designers improve memory systems.
Dr. Aranya Chakrabortty the recipients for an NSF award for the development of an advanced design architecture that will enable integration of high-speed communication networks with wide-area control of large power systems using Synchronized Phasor Measurements (or “Synchrophasors”).
North Carolina State University researchers make meaningful advances in science, medicine and engineering that could have a significant impact on everything from human health to the business of brewing beer.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed an efficient algorithm that can interpret the wheezing of patients with breathing difficulties to give medical providers information about what’s happening in the lungs.
In July of 2015, a team of four NCSU ECE undergraduate students participated for the first time in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Future Energy Competition (IFEC) and won the best Energy Efficiency award at the final competition at the University of Sheffield, UK.
The award-winning paper by Xu and Eun entitled, “Modeling Time-Sensitive Information Diffusion in Online Social Networks” focused on the complex issue of how to predict how many users will forward or comment on information posted in online social networks.
Rita Brugarolas and Jose Manuel Valero-Sarmiento, ASSIST PhD students in Electrical Engineering and research assistants in Dr. Alper Bozkurt’s iBionics Laboratory at North Carolina State University, conceived a novel idea: an auto-titrating oral appliance for at home use.
Research from North Carolina State University and Carnegie Mellon University shows that passing wireless power transfer through a magnetic resonance field enhancer (MRFE) – which can be as simple as a copper loop – can boost the transfer efficiency by at least 100 percent as compared to transferring through air alone.
