    ID Day at the museum

    ID Day, sponsored by the Ruthven Museums, always brings out the science sleuths. More than 650 visitors, many of them parents with young children, attended the event recently, bringing a variety of offerings for identification by resident experts. Jen-Pan Huang, a doctoral student in ecology and evolutionary biology, and Mark O’Brien, collections manager for the Museum of Zoology’s Insect Division, entertain and inform at the insect station, where the Hercules Beetles were a big hit.

    Unmanned ground vehicles

    Driving unmanned ground robots with a joystick can be hard and even dangerous in some cases, such as when using the vehicles for remote exploration inside a nuclear reactor. But a new high-tech control method using augmented reality makes driving simpler and safe. In this video, Steve Vozar, a graduate student research assistant in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, explains how the process works.

    Internet hardware in the loop

    The College of Engineering is pioneering an Internet system that enables researchers to interconnect and test physical and virtual prototypes, in real time. Tulga Ersal, an assistant research scientist in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, explains how the system could make it possible for researchers to test an entire multi-component system — such as a car — no matter where in the world those components might be.
