Mizzou Engineering paper among IEEE top 10 featured articles

In the IEEE paper, Professor Dominique Ho outlines a more rigorous process that allows machines to better recognize elliptical shapes in images. A Mizzou Engineer has helped devise a way for machines to better see and detect objects that have elliptical shape — earning him and co-authors a spot in a top academic journal. The [...]
Trauth receives Watershed Management Achievement Award

Trauth receives Watershed Management Achievement Award

Mizzou Engineering’s Kate Trauth has received a prestigious award for significant contributions to the field of watershed management. The Missouri Water Environment Association (MWEA) Stormwater Committee honored Trauth with the 2019 Watershed Management Achievement Award, which was presented this year after last year’s conference was canceled. Trauth is an associate professor of civil and environmental [...]
Student team devises way to control robotic arm using hand gestures

Student team devises way to control robotic arm using hand gestures

Figure (a) Flow of EMG signal from participant to robotic arm. Figure (b) Hand motions used and the corresponding motion of the robotic arm. A Mizzou Engineering team has devised a way to control a robot just by moving your hands. What makes the work especially unique is that researchers only used one pair of [...]
Researchers training machines to recognize vocal fatigue

Researchers training machines to recognize vocal fatigue

Even before COVID-19 had them speaking up in online classrooms or projecting their voices from behind masks, teachers were at high risk of vocal fatigue. This condition can cause persistent hoarseness, throat pain and permanent damage to the vocal cords. Currently, diagnosing vocal fatigue requires an in-person consultation. But someday, a wearable device or smart [...]
Tracking traffic crashes: Researcher, Missouri State Highway Patrol working to understand where, when accidents happen

Tracking traffic crashes: Researcher, Missouri State Highway Patrol working to understand where, when accidents happen

In addition to potential injuries and property damage, traffic crashes can cause a lot of disruptions from making people late to work to delaying package delivery. A Mizzou Engineer is working with the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) to better understand when and where traffic accidents happen in hopes of minimizing those disruptions. “I’m helping [...]
Researcher helps AAAS, HBCU group envision a zero hunger world

Researcher helps AAAS, HBCU group envision a zero hunger world

Solving issues around global hunger will require collaboration among diverse groups approaching the problem from multiple angles. That was one take-away from a presentation Mizzou’s Kiruba Krishnaswamy gave on Aug. 26 at a webinar hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The presentation was part of AAAS’s Making & Innovation Showcase, [...]
Midwest Industrial Assessment Center receives Department of Energy grant to continue helping manufacturers become more efficient

Midwest Industrial Assessment Center receives Department of Energy grant to continue helping manufacturers become more efficient

For 15 years, a Mizzou Engineering center has worked with Missouri manufacturers to identify ways to cut down on energy costs. Since then, the Midwest Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) has helped industries save more than $87 million — nearly $28 million in the past four years alone. Now, Director Sanjeev Khanna is equipped to help [...]

Meet Praveen Edara

Diverging diamond interchanges have been shown to reduce the number of car crashes by more than half and save states millions of dollars in construction costs. But before the first one debuted in 2009, researchers across the country spent years testing them in simulated environments. Meet Praveen Edara, who was among the first to study [...]
Developing tastier, healthier soy-based products

Developing tastier, healthier soy-based products

More nutritious, shelf-stable soy-based products could be coming to a grocery store near you within the next five years — good news for health-conscious consumers and Missouri farmers alike. Mizzou’s Kiruba Krishnaswamy has received funding from the Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council (MSMC) to come up with a process to develop tastier powdered milk, yogurt and [...]
