Medical Design Briefs highlighted Ulkuhan Guler, assistant professor of electrical & computer engineering, in a Q&A. Guler answered questions about what drew her to engineering, and what advice she would recommend to other women considering the field.
Wireless Sensors for a New Prosthetics Device
Professor Ted Clancy, a local prosthetics company, and an occupational therapist with limb absence have teamed up to develop wireless sensors to improve the performance of prosthetics for individuals with upper limb amputations. “This wireless sensor technology will have a major impact for individuals with limb absence and allow them to control their hand and wrist prostheses,” said Clancy, professor of electrical and computer engineering.
Driving Straight into an Autonomous Future
With self-driving cars promising to become part of our everyday lives, one MQP team took on the challenge of retrofitting a traditional vehicle to become a self-driving automobile. Under the supervision of ECE professor Alex Wyglinski, team members built a modular platform, using LIDAR, which uses lasers and sensors to measure distance, ultrasonic sensors, motors, and a high-performance computing module that can make any ground vehicle drive autonomously.
