Mizzou Engineers study markings states use to direct drivers through work zones

Mizzou Engineers study markings states use to direct drivers through work zones

Mizzou Engineers have wrapped up a comprehensive review of the materials states use to temporarily direct drivers through highway work zones and the various methods they rely on to remove those markings. Brown Henry Brown, a research engineer, along with Praveen Edara, chair and professor of civil and environment engineering, released their findings in a [...]
Creating an artificial material that can sense, adapt to its environment

Creating an artificial material that can sense, adapt to its environment

Researchers at the University of Missouri and University of Chicago have developed an artificial material, called a metamaterial, which can respond to its environment, independently make a decision, and perform an action not directed by a human being. For example, a drone making a delivery might evaluate its environment including wind direction, speed or wildlife, [...]
Mizzou Engineer studies trail bridges as part of E4C Fellowship

Mizzou Engineer studies trail bridges as part of E4C Fellowship

Abdul Rashid Mussah studied trail bridges as part of an Engineering 4 Change Fellowship. Trail bridges that connect remote communities are working, a Mizzou Engineer has found. Abdul Rashid Mussah, a PhD candidate in civil engineering, investigated the effectiveness of the structures as part of a prestigious fellowship with Engineering 4 Change. During his five-month [...]
Chemical Engineer using metamaterials to harvest terahertz energy

Chemical Engineer using metamaterials to harvest terahertz energy

Rectenna are combination antenna-diode that possess great utility in converting high-frequency, i,e, 10s-100s terahertz (1012 cycles per second), energy,  into electricity. This conversion can happen either in terms of direct irradiation from sunlight, or indirectly through blackbody waste heat from hot processes, into direct current (DC) electronic power.  This waste heat accounts for losses of [...]
Mizzou Engineers to present at IEEE Blockchain Conference

Mizzou Engineers to present at IEEE Blockchain Conference

A Mizzou Engineering team has developed a secure Blockchain platform that insurance companies could use to streamline claims processing. Researchers — under the direction of Associate Professor and Greg L. Gilliom Professor of Cyber Security Prasad Calyam — will present that work at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Conference on Blockchain [...]
Engineering team develops system to segment, track cells from images

Engineering team develops system to segment, track cells from images

Rina Bao and Noor Al-Shakarji developed a system to segment and track cells from microscopy video images. A Mizzou Engineering team won a Best Paper Award at an international workshop earlier this month. Rina Bao, who just completed her PhD, and PhD student Noor Al-Shakarji received the accolade for developing a two-stream deep learning network [...]
Mizzou Engineering graduate research on display at open house

Mizzou Engineering graduate research on display at open house

Graduate students at Mizzou Engineering conduct their own research, collaborate with peers across campus and develop skills for high-level jobs. Even better? The College helps cover the cost. Those were some of the take-aways from a Graduate Research Open House held Tuesday, Oct. 26. “Graduate school will help you prepare for a rewarding career in […]

Researchers use simulated environments to train AI

Researchers use simulated environments to train AI

Associate Professor Derek Anderson, PhD candidate Brendan Alvey and Assistant Research Professor Andrew Buck discuss the simulated data they're using to train artificial intelligence (AI). A Mizzou Engineering team is hoping to lead artificial intelligence (AI) into a new era by forgoing real-world data in favor of simulated environments. “State-of-the-art AI is based on a [...]
Civil Engineer helps MoDOT study New Madrid evacuation routes

Civil Engineer helps MoDOT study New Madrid evacuation routes

Professor Praveen Edara is working with MoDOT to study evacuation plans in New Madrid and surrounding counties. Were a major earthquake to rock the New Madrid fault line in southeast Missouri, it’s likely people would be displaced from their homes. But where would they go and how would they get there? That’s a question a [...]
