Texas A&M University was one of the eight North American universities selected to compete in the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) AutoDrive challenge, a three-year competition that allows university teams to develop and demonstrate their own autonomous vehicle.
The rules of the road are changing. Algorithms that are used to help predict driver behavior in years past are facing a changing landscape as more and more automated vehicles are on roadways. The emergence of these automated vehicles is just one aspect of roadway safety that is covered by Dr. Dominique Lord’s new book “Safe Mobility: Challenges, Methodology and Solutions.”
Texas A&M Engineering’s graduate program was ranked 12th overall nationally and remained seventh among public institutions in the latest U.S. News & World Report survey, “America’s Best Graduate Schools 2019.”
The wind and water have subsided after Hurricane Harvey swept through Texas in August, but the road to recovery is long. To help the process move along, 32 engineering students from Texas A&M University spent their winter break assisting the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as site inspectors.
At the November 2017 Aggies Invent challenge civil engineering master's student Morgan Boudier and four other Aggies developed a specialized augmented reality software with the ability to tell engineering project teams if a project they are working is on track.
John Barton was selected as the 2017 Public Sector recipient of the John “Jake” Landen Memorial Safety Award by the Traffic Safety Industry Division (TSID) of the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) for his role spanning a 30-year career at TxDOT.
A recent study has added a new dimension to the controversial decision to inject large amounts of chemical dispersants immediately above the crippled oil well at the seafloor during the Deepwater Horizon disaster in 2010. The dispersants may have significantly reduced the amount of harmful gases in the air at the sea surface—reducing health risks for emergency responders and allowing them to keep working to stop the uncontrolled spill and clean up the spilled oil sooner.
