With a traditional transfemoral prosthetic, walking across various terrains, going downhill or walking up and down a set of stairs can be a tedious job for the wearer. To help make daily life easier for amputee patients, Dr. Pilwon Hur has developed a robotic transfemoral prosthesis.
Dr. Nancy M. Amato, Unocal and Regents Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been elected as a 2018 Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) Fellow.
The Center for Robot-Assisted Search and Rescue (CRASAR) received the Emergency Management Association of Texas (EMAT) Emergency Management Technology and Innovation Award at the 11th annual EMAT Leadership Symposium last week.
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.
