Quentin Holden, certified arborist and tree surgeon at Georgia Tech, talks about his work.
Lyubomir Lichev is the building coordinator for the School of Biological Sciences.
Using graphics processing chips designed for gaming applications and software that runs on ordinary web browsers, researchers are modeling deadly spiral wave heart arrhythmias on personal computers – even high-end smartphones. That could put the real-time 3D modeling into the hands of clinicians who may one day use the system to diagnose and treat these abnormal heart rhythms.
Researchers at Georgia Tech are looking at modeling new adhesives based off of how honey bees make pollen stick together.
Meet Camilla Brewer, coordinator for the LGBTQIA Resource Center.
An interface system that uses augmented reality technology could help individuals with profound motor impairments operate a humanoid robot to feed themselves and perform routine personal care tasks such as scratching an itch and applying skin lotion. The web-based interface displays a “robot’s eye view” of surroundings to help users interact with the world through the machine.
Unfoldit is a smartphone game of paper folding and hole punching designed to test and enhance spatial abilities.
“I wanted to recreate the feeling of riding the air with your fingers with a drone and have young people experience flying in a fun, new way,” Parker explains. That is, without the use of a standard radio controller.
Georgia law requires a driver to leave a “safe distance” when passing a bicycle, defining it as not less than three feet. And the Georgia Tech students behind HANDLD want to help enforce this law and keep bicyclists safer.
With some inspiration from family members affected, 2019 InVenture Prize finalists TremorTrainer are hoping to improve the quality of life for millions of people.
Ethos is making spinal taps quicker and safer by providing an intuitive real-time needle guidance system for use right at the patient’s bedside.
Georgia Tech admission staff travel to Cairo High School to personally deliver acceptance letters to two students.
An ultra-low power hybrid chip inspired by the brain could help give palm-sized robots the ability to collaborate and learn from their experiences. Combined with new generations of low-power motors and sensors, the new application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) – which operates on milliwatts of power – could help intelligent swarm robots operate for hours instead of minutes.
Snakes slithering across the desert sand at night can encounter obstacles such as plants or twigs that alter the direction of their travel. While studying that motion to learn how limbless animals control their bodies in such environments, Georgia Tech researchers discovered that snakes colliding with an obstacle behave much like light waves encountering an optical diffraction grating. What they learned could improve the control systems of future snake-like robots.
