Assessing the health implications of autonomous vehicles

Autonomous vehicles (AV) are the wave of the future in the automobile industry, and there’s extensive discussion about the impacts on transportation, society, the economy and the environment. However, less attention has been focused on the potential health impacts of self-driving vehicles. Texas A&M University researchers have developed a conceptual model to identify these health Read more about Assessing the health implications of autonomous vehicles[…]

Learning Environments with Augmentation and Robotics for Next-gen Emergency Responders

What if you could provide emergency responders with technology that could not only potentially save lives, but make their work more precise and efficient at the same time through the use of novel human augmentation technologies? This concept, called LEARNER is on its way to becoming a reality thanks to an award from the National Read more about Learning Environments with Augmentation and Robotics for Next-gen Emergency Responders[…]

A new smart technology that can help utility companies better serve communities

In a new study, researchers from Texas A&M University and industry have designed a smart technology that can help utility companies better serve communities affected by blackouts. The researchers said their single device works by improving energy delivery between home solar-power systems and the electrical grid. “Our innovation lets solar energy consumers be less dependent Read more about A new smart technology that can help utility companies better serve communities[…]
