The goal of the project is to develop a system that uses multiple UAVs to make accurate predictions on the fire spread path and deliver real-time results.

MU researchers reach blood pressure breakthrough

MU researchers reach blood pressure breakthrough

The Mizzou team of researchers utilized non-contact hydraulic bed sensors to estimate relative systolic blood pressure — the top number in a typical blood pressure reading — by extracting features from the ballistocardiogram (BCG) signal.

NIH grant supports tailoring eldercare health alert system for consumer use

NIH grant supports tailoring eldercare health alert system for consumer use

Now, thanks to a new grant from the National Institutes of Health, members of the Center for Eldercare and Rehabilitation Technology will investigate tailoring the system to alert the patients themselves or family members, providing actionable data that’s easy for non-health professionals to use.

A ‘sixth sense’: Researchers patent device that can increase affordability, portability of chem-bio sensing

A new patent by a University of Missouri College of Engineering researcher is poised to make chemical and biological agent sensing much cheaper and more portable. Mark Prelas, a professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, recently filed a patent for a new deep-level transient spectrometer (DLTS) design. This patent pairs with previous patents […]

Sensors increase ability to predict senior citizen falls

A sensor system developed and used by researchers at the University of Missouri produces images and sends automatic e-mail alerts that can be used to predict a fall within a three-week period.
