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.
The first-ever AOI Sensing Symposium was a unique example of what is possible when industry, research and education collide in search of engineering solutions for critically important global challenges.
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 […]
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.
Marjorie Skubic, MU professor of electrical and computer engineering and director of the MU Center for Eldercare and Rehabilitation Technology, said the bed sensors’ purpose is to detect any possible health problems while helping patients to “age in place” in the comfort of their own homes.
The research illustrated how fabricating a relatively inexpensive plasmonic grating can create a platform that allows for higher resolution imaging down to 65 nanometers.
MU electrical and computer engineering Professor Shubhra Gangopadhyay and her research group have been investigating applications of platinum nanoparticles, recently publishing a pair of papers on new ways to utilize the materials.
Maria Fidalgo, an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, currently is working on a project called “A novel artificial hormone receptor for the sensing of total endocrine disruptor chemicals concentration in natural waters.”
“Assessing Injury Risk in Pianists: Using Objective Measures to Promote Self-awareness,” co-authored by Marge Skubic, recently earned the 2016 Article of the Year honor from the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA).
Heather Hunt, assistant professor in the MU Department of Bioengineering, was awarded a 3M Non-tenured Faculty Award from the global innovation company with operations in more than 70 countries, including a facility in Columbia, Mo.
