Sustainable Energy-Choosing Among Options When Everything Matters
From fossilized brachiopods, fish lungs and iPhones to mouse hearts and habanero chilies, Cornell's micro-CT (computer tomography) scanner provides spectacular and colorful 3-D datasets from the inside out.
Chris Hernandez is interested in the mechanics of bone. The human body's structural underpinnings are subject to the same mechanical laws as bridges and buildings, but unlike steel or concrete, bone is self-repairing.
ECE Assistant Professor Christopher Batten is currently interested in combining the advantages of graphics processors (GPUs) and general-purpose processors in a single chip.
A team of electrical and computer engineering faculty has received $1 million from Intel Corp., Cisco Systems Inc., and Verizon Communications Inc. for research on ,video-aware networks.Š
Violet is the name of a 50 kg spacecraft--a nanosatellite--that is being designed and built at Cornell University. This video includes clips from interviews with members of Violet's systems engineering team.
This video is an introduction to the Universal Jamming Gripper, which is featured on the cover of the November 2, 2010 edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
Michal Lipson, an associate professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering, was named a 2010 MacArthur Fellow, which includes a $500,000, grant for individuals who have shown exceptional creativity in their work and the promise to do more.
Monroe Weber-Shirk is the director of AguaClara, a program in Civil and Environmental Engineering that is improving drinking water quality drinkidrinking water quality through innovative research and knowledge transfer.
We're not sure what brand of batteries it was using, but the Cornell Ranger robot just kept going and going April 3 when it set an unofficial world record by walking nonstop for 45 laps -- a little over 9 kilometers or 5.6 miles -- around the Barton
AguaClara is a group of Cornell Engineering students who design water treatment plants for rural communities. Faculty leader Monroe Weber-Shirk accompanies them to Honduras every year to tour existing and potential water plant sites.
Cornell researchers have built a robot that works out its own model of itself and can revise the model to adapt to injury. First, it teaches itself to walk. Then, when damaged, it teaches itself to limp.
