NASA Space Grant Robotics

NASA Space Grant Robotics is in the process of creating underwater robots that can be used for deep sea diving. This would replace divers, as well as reduce the risk to their lives. Furthermore, underwater robots will allow us to go deeper than any divers can, giving us an opportunity to explore vast expanses of […]

Treatment of Acute Upper Gastrointestinal Clots Through Histotripsy

Acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding results in 20,000 deaths annually in the United States. The current issue is in locating and removing an excessive amount of blood clots obstructing the location and visualization of the wound resulting in invasive procedures and multiple blood transfusions. This device is composed of a focused transducer that emits high-intensity focused […]

The Adaptive Omphalocele Protective Device

The Adaptive Omphalocele Protective Device is a novel medical device created in partnership with Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH), which helps families safely transport their children born with an omphalocele birth defect. An omphalocele is a birth defect in which the abdominal organs of the child balloon out of the abdomen. This defect leads to complications with transporting […]

Tuning Excimer Concentrations While adding Quantum Dot and Phosphor Conversion Layers to Improve Efficiency, Lifetime, and Color Quality of Blue Light in Organic Light Emitting Diodes

This project investigated methods of efficiently replicating white light by emitting blue light as a primary light source and adding targeted wavelengths of amber light as a secondary source. The goal was to produce an OLED with a full visible light spectrum and high Color Rendering Index (CRI) by having the secondary source absorb high-frequency […]

Control of Bipedal Laminate Robot

Determining effective ways to control soft, laminate robotics has been an important issue in soft robotics since its nascent stages. The project focuses on the development and control of a walking gait for a laminate biped by using dynamics and control methodologies to keep track of its zero-moment point. The integration of knowledge gained from […]

Robust Consensus in Multi Robot Systems Using Wireless Signals

Securing robot teams against malicious activity is crucial as these systems accelerate towards widespread societal integration. Researchers derive a framework for securing multi-agent consensus against the Sybil attack by using physical properties of wireless transmissions. Researchers design a switching signal and consensus protocol from the transmissions, which stochastically excludes untrustworthy clients. This allows for consensus […]

Design and Control of a Soft Robotic Ankle-Foot Orthosis

For physical therapists working with patients with foot and ankle injuries, it is imperative that they have mechanical help with the rehabilitation process. However, existing solutions are cumbersome and stationary. To combat this problem, researchers are engineering a device using light-weight, flexible soft robotics that a patient would wear over the foot that would aid […]
