Luke Manier, a 2001 graduate from the MU Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department, facilitated the donation of equipment for 15 modern industrial automation workstations including components to aid in the construction of two advanced motion control systems from his company, Rockwell Automation.
The third and final installment of a series of events to commemorate 100 years of engineering in agriculture at the University of Missouri will be celebrated at the South Farm Research Center on April 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
A two-pronged robotic system pioneered by University of Missouri researchers, including the College of Engineering’s Gui DeSouza, is changing the way scientists study crops and plant phenotyping.
At Mizzou, the College of Engineering’s SHPE chapter celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month, which occurs annually between Sept. 15 and Oct. 15, with a panel discussion with Latino and Latina academians in STEM fields.
MU professors from several different departments offered advice to young Latino and Latina students on October 14, when Mizzou’s Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers hosted its second annual Latin@s in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) panel.
Electrical engineers worked with a computer scientist and a computational biologist to create and utilize a robot that would automatically collect the latter pair’s data for research into maize phenotype mutants.
New research uses the built-in camera on a computer to track and record the eye movement of health professionals as they viewed identical radiography images on the computer screen.
After graduating from the University of Missouri in 1987 with a degree in computer science, Darren Gabbert was hired as a graduate research assistant by MU’s Campus Computing, now the Division of IT. The work that he and others did to find innovative computer-aided learning solutions for persons with mobility, visual and learning disabilities grew […]
A number of exciting research projects aimed at increasing independence for persons with disabilities have resulted from a collaboration between Electrical and Computer Engineering Professors Harry Tyrer and Gui DeSouza, Darren Gabbert with MU’s Adaptive Computing Technology (ACT) Center, and students in DeSouza’s Vision-Guided and Intelligent Robotics (ViGIR) lab. In his position at ACT, Gabbert […]
A team of Mizzou Engineering researchers is seeking to develop complex surveillance software that would alert American troops to deadly explosives before they can be deployed. Most U.S. combat casualties in Iraq have been caused by explosive devices, according to Department of Defense records. Military officials have sought to thwart these improvised explosive devices-commonly known […]
