Mizzou Engineers showcased at chancellor’s address

Several Mizzou Engineering students, including Lydia Meyer, presented posters after the chancellor’s remarks, helping to illustrate the importance of quality research done at Mizzou. Photo by Ryan Owens. Giving poster presentations is a fact of life for students participating in research at the University of Missouri College of Engineering. But being selected to present as part of an event held by Chancellor Alexander Cartwright discussing the importance of research at Mizzou is a unique honor. Several Mizzou Engineering students presented…

New research on the strength of children’s bones could help in the design of safer car seats

Credit: University of Sheffield Researchers at the University of Sheffield have successfully used computer simulated models and medical imaging to test the strength of young children’s bones, producing results which could help car seat manufacturers design safer car seats for young children. The study, the first on infant bone strength in relation to age/weight using models developed from modern medical images, is published today in the Journal of Biomechanics and Modeling in Mechanobiology. The research used CT scans—x-rays to…

Marine exploration sensing with light and sound

KAUST researchers are modeling various techniques for improving wireless underwater sensor networks. For example, new wireless hybrid sensors that use both acoustic and optical communication could improve underwater data collection for ocean observation. Credit: © 2018 Abdulkadir Celik Oceanic sensor networks that collect and transmit high-quality, real-time data could transform the understanding of marine ecology, improve pollution and disaster management, and inform multiple industries that draw on ocean resources. A KAUST research team is designing and optimizing underwater wireless sensor…

Metal-organic compounds produces new class of glass — ScienceDaily

Lightning and volcanos both produce glass, and humans have been making glass from silicon dioxide since prehistory. Industrialization brought us boron-based glasses, polymer glasses and metallic glasses, but now an international team of researchers has developed a new family of glass based on metals and organic compounds that stacks up to the original silica in glass-forming ability. Glass-forming ability is the ability of a liquid to avoid crystallization during cooling. “Glass is a liquid frozen into a solid-like material in…

Uncovering the secrets of the human body’s perception of touch

Figure 1: Children from 0 to 6 years old explore their environments to collect information necessary for their survival. Credit: ISETAN SHINJUKU Scientific research has yielded deep understanding on the human senses of sight, hearing, smell, and taste. But knowledge about bodily perceptions of the sense of touch is still limited. For example, during a handshake, who is shaking whose hand? The answer to this question is just one of the multifaceted aspects of touch being studied by ‘haptics scientist’…

Celebrating Uber Bangalore’s Women in Tech

In honor of International Women’s Day (March 8), Disha Pancholi, Uber Bangalore Engineering’s Site Program Manager, sat down with members of her office to discuss their experiences as women in technology. When I started working at Uber in May 2017, many of my peers and former colleagues questioned my decision. Not only was I switching roles—transitioning from recruiting to program management—but I was coming onboard during a transformative time for the company. Nine months later, I can say with pride…

Mizzou 3D Printing Club helps pup put best foot forward

The 3D Printing Club at Mizzou has developed a number of different models, each of which has been tested by Tucker. Photo by Brandon Mullen. Tucker is ready to put his best foot forward. With the help of the College of Engineering’s 3D Printing Club, Kendra Earl Warlow’s 5-year-old Australian Shepherd will soon walk on four paws. Born without his hind right foot, Tucker has adapted throughout his life to travel on just three. However, with age, he’s begun to…

Profits, doubts in equal measure at Geneva Motor Show

Luxury carmakers will show off their wares at the Geneva Motor Show – but healthy profits cannot fully ease concerns over the future as the trend to electric and self-driving cars accelerates This year’s Geneva Motor Show comes at a curious time for an auto world enjoying record profits yet also gripped by doubt midway through the grand transition from diesel to electric and self-driving vehicles. “Geneva really ought to have been a lovely salon,” says, with heavy irony, Ferdinand…

A power boost for mobile technologies

Imagine you are shopping on your iPad for a new merino wool sweater for the winter, and when you visit a retail site, you can not only see countless views of your prospective purchase but you can reach out and feel the texture of the fabric. Or more consequentially: you are a physician performing an operation remotely using a telemedicine application, and you can virtually feel the patient upon whom you are operating. In the endless quest to create the…
