Making ‘transport’ robots smarter
Researchers are working to speed up the online delivery process by developing a software model designed to make “transport” robots smarter.
Engineering team develops last-mile delivery platform with help from I-Corps
When you order something online, shipping fees can be hefty as companies try to recoup the cost of delivering the product to your doorstep. To help offset some of those so-called “last-mile” expenses, a Mizzou Engineering team is developing a tool that will allow delivery companies to best optimize routes using electric vehicles and drones.
Mizzou Engineer studying augmented reality to bring coursework to life
Augmented reality (AR) has the potential to bring coursework to life. Imagine, for instance, learning about supply chains by seeing the various components of an operation laid out in front of you, from the manufacturing…
Team develops new method to determine lifespan of lithium-ion batteries
A Mizzou Engineering team has devised a new way to determine how many times you can recharge a lithium-ion battery before it needs to be replaced. Lithium-ion batteries are common in electronics such as laptops, and they’re a key component to getting electric vehicles on the roads. They can be recharged hundreds of times, but…
IMSE Spring 2022 Capstone Projects
Seniors in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering conclude their coursework with a capstone project. These capstone projects apply what they’ve learned in their classes to a manufacturing, health care or logistics problem provided by real-world companies.
Engineering team proposes new mass transit model during pandemics
A Mizzou Engineering team has devised a model that could help reduce the risk of exposure to viruses such as COVID while still operating public transportation.
Adolescent psychological well-being tied to adult risk of cardiovascular disease, study finds
Scientists have known for years that a person’s risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) can be lowered with lifestyle changes such as modifying diet, exercise, alcohol and tobacco use. Now Anand Chockalingam and Sharan Srinivas at the University of Missouri demonstrate in a new study that a long-term association also exists between an adolescent’s psychological well-being and their risk of CVD as an adult.
Industrial engineers analyze perceptions of insurance industry
Despite their catchy commercials, insurance companies have a public relations problem. Numerous studies have shown that general perceptions of the industry are negative. Now, a team of Mizzou researchers have used their industrial engineering expertise to find out why.
