Visible to the public DMREF: Simulation-Based Design of Functional Sub-nanometer Porous Membranes

Abstract:

Polymer thin films containing high-density arrays of nanotubes as through channels are very desirable as environmentally friendly and efficient selective transport systems. However, successful design and synthesis of polymer membranes that can be processed in solution and have precise subnanometer diameter pores, vertical channel alignment, and tunable pore interior chemistry similar to biological transmembrane proteins has remained challenging to produce.

Visible to the public Transforming a City’s Transportation Infrastructure through an Embedded Pervasive Communication Network

Abstract:

The objective of this inter-disciplinary research is to develop new wireless technologies that transform the streets of a city into a hybrid transportation/communication system, called the Intelligent Road (iRoad), where autonomous wireless devices are co-located with traffic signals, forming a wireless network that fuses transportation data from all over the city to support a wide range of new applications.

Visible to the public Plug-and-Play environment for sensor configuration and data collection

Abstract:

The objective of this research is to investigate and implement a software architecture to improve productivity in the development of rapidly deployable, robust, real-time situational awareness and response (R3SAR) applications. The approach is to allow a commodity to device to dynamically configure itself for a pre-instrumented sensor environment, such as a truck with attached road temperature, humidity, and moisture sensors.

Visible to the public Cyber-Physical Cloud Computing

Abstract:

We are focused on theoretical work exploring how ideas successful in cloud computing can help CPS at scale. We have two products. One is the "Virtual Vehicle" and the other the "BigActor Model." The first is a mobile counterpart of the virtual machine. There is a tension between the openness of systems, unavoidable in any system at scale, and performance guarantees.

Visible to the public From Verified Models to Verified Code for Medical Devices

Abstract:

The design of bug-free and safe medical device software is challenging, especially in complex implantable devices that control and actuate organs who's response is not fully understood. Safety recalls of pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators between 1990 and 2000 affected over 600,000 devices. Of these, 200,000 or 41%, were due to firmware issues (i.e. software) that continue to increase in frequency [1].

Visible to the public Flow-based Cyber Physical Systems

Abstract:

Monitoring flow-based systems (FBS) (e.g., water distribution systems) is of paramount importance, due to their economic and health impacts. FBS monitoring has been typically achieved by strategically placed, costly and complex, static sensors. To reduce the cost of monitoring, we propose a mobile wireless sensor network (WSN) system comprised of mobile sensors (their movement aided by the inherent flow) and static beacons which aid locating sensors.

Visible to the public A Unified Distributed Spatiotemporal Signal Processing Framework for Structural Health Monitoring

Abstract:

Conventionally, structural health monitoring (SHM) routines are time-based and are carried out offline. So they cannot provide real-time situational awareness. More recently, online health monitoring systems start to appear thanks to the fast developing technologies in sensing, hardware miniature, embedded computing and communication.
