Before Hurricane Harvey even made landfall, Texas A&M Engineering has been helping Texans to prepare, respond and now, rebuild.
Here are just a few of the ways that Texas A&M Engineering students, faculty and staff have sprung into action.These stories, and more from across The Texas A&M University System, are included in Texas A&M’s 100 Stories (and counting) of Selfless Service.
Dr. Robin Murphy, Director of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station’s Center for Emergency Informatics, presented at the White House Frontiers Conference on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh. Murphy was also recently awarded a National Science Foundation National Robotics Initiative grant. Funded by the Department of Energy, the grant will allow Murphy to continue her current research on autonomous robot assistants.
Sungtae Shin, a doctoral student in Texas A&M University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, has been researching myoelectric interfacing, reading the electrical signals from muscles, as part of a project designed to create exoskeletons for physical rehabilitation purposes. In an important step toward that goal, Shin has successfully used a myoelectric controller worn like an armband to operate a robotic arm.
First responders and researchers braved scorching temperatures this week to demonstrate the latest in life-saving technologies at the Summer Institute on Flooding hosted by the Center for Emergency Informatics in conjunction with the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service.
