Eeewww, a cockroach! Then it zips off before the swatter appears. Now, researchers have leveraged the bug’s superb scurrying skills to create a cleverly simple method to assess and improve locomotion in robots.
Jim Bridenstine, the Administrator of NASA and Congressman Tom Graves visited for a campus tour, taking the time to meet current students working on projects for NASA. The BioSentinel Mission involves a briefcase-sized CubeSat that holds a Georgia Tech-built thruster and the Ranging and Nanosatellite Guidance Experiment designed by students was part of the SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket which launched in December 2018.
Economic Development Forum held at The Biltmore on July 31, 2019.
A wireless, wearable monitor built with stretchable electronics could allow comfortable, long-term health monitoring of adults, babies and small children without concern for skin injury or allergic reactions caused by conventional adhesive sensors with conductive gels.
Researchers have created a new type of tiny 3D-printed robot that moves by harnessing vibration from piezoelectric actuators, ultrasound sources or even tiny speakers. Swarms of these “micro-bristle-bots” might work together to sense environmental changes, move materials – or perhaps one day repair injuries inside the human body.

Nathan Batey, an electrical engineering major, built a working synthesizer atop his cap, and used it to play Georgia Tech’s fight song.
When Halle Bryan set foot on campus in her first year, she didn't know a single person. After setting a goal to get involved outside of the classroom, Halle became one of the most recognizable faces at Georgia Tech.
Nahom is quite possibly the best distance runner in Georgia Tech history. Became the first Georgia Tech student-athlete since 1994 to be named an all-American in cross country … ran the fastest time in 23 years by a Yellow Jacket in the 2017 NCAA Championships and finished his career by leading every race he’d competed in over his final two years. He holds the record in every long-distance race the Yellow Jackets compete in. And to cap it all of, he's earning his master's degree from the School of Electrical and Computer Science with a goal of becoming a robotics engineer.
Darius came to Georgia Tech as a dean's scholar in the Scheller College of business. He knew he wanted to tap into his entrepreneurial spirit. After a childhood of getting haircuts from his dad, Darius decided to learn how to do it himself. He started offering haircuts to his classmates - but it was his professors from Georgia Tech's College of Business that helped him launch his own small business - and he used his haircutting profits to help buy a car while he completed his degree.
