A team of CU Boulder engineering and computer science students designed and built a fully autonomous robotic boat and took it on the road to an autonomous surface vehicle (ASV) competition June 17–23 in Florida.
Alumnus Kevin VanLiere (MechEngr‘95) is working with aerospace engineering Lecturer Hank Scott to improve the design of "the middle seat" on airplanes. VanLiere is President and Scott is CEO and founder of Molon Labe Seating.
Researchers in Christoph Keplinger’s lab released a toolkit to show a broad audience how to create their own artificial muscles. They hope this will expedite the development of wearable, surgical and collaborative robots that safely and effectively help humans.
Researchers are developing sensors based on technologies used in chip-scale atomic clocks and optically pumped magnetometers with sensitivity and accuracy able to support wireless broadband antenna technologies.
Victor Bright and a team of CU Boulder and CU Anschutz researchers have received a grant to commercialize a miniature microscope that fits on the head of a mouse and can peer deeply inside the living brain.
CU Boulder researchers Jianliang Xiao and Wei Zhang have developed self-healing, fully-recyclable electronic skin that is completely recyclable. They are now investigating applications surrounding the material's ability to shapeshift.
From developing a system to reduce food waste to constructing a way to prevent tool theft at public bike repair stations, students in the Design for America organization at CU Boulder are working on a wide range of projects with community partners.
The CU Board of Regents approved new degrees in biomedical engineering. Through these degrees, students will have the chance to pursue classes across the university in engineering, biology and mathematics.
Six student teams are participating in CU Boulder’s Catalyze CU startup accelerator. They have access to skill-building workshops and mentoring with local business leaders and can earn up to $5,000 in equity-free funding.
