X3D Sensor-based Thermal Maps

There are many building energy simulation systems on the market today; however, most of them rely on theoretical thermal models to make decisions on the building structural design and modifications. Sustainable methods of construction have made tremendous progress in the recent decades. Energy deficient western methods of construction hardly tap into the huge potential of applying energy-efficiency technology. We propose a simple and effective, Web3D thermal simulation system coupled with a cost-effective set of sensors (e.g. temperature, relative-humidity) that can provide valuable insights into building design, materials and construction that can lead to significant energy savings and an improved thermal comfort.

Framework for Electronic Enhancement of Laboratories (FEEL)

The goal of this project is to explore the opportunities for a broad adoption of haptic-enabled interfaces in physics courses that will engage students in the learning process generating a new and deeper level of engagement while improving their level of retention. Many fundamental concepts in physics require the development of active mental models for the students to understand the physical and mathematical components. We propose to stimulate student attention and facilitate the understanding of difficult/abstract concepts while improving their mental models using haptic augmentation. The project will also improve faculty and student expertise in haptic computer-based simulations.

Savannah in 3D

Passenger Rail is a viable and cost-effective transportation solution in many areas, especially in view of rising energy costs. The Savannah in 3D (S3D) project is a multimedia tool for a feasibility study group planning to bring passenger rail to Savannah; thereby opening up this historic, tourist-friendly city to a wider audience.

3DRTT (3D Radiation Therapy Treatment)

Part of this project is a 3D graphical simulation web-based tool that can be used as a stand alone application to assist in external treatment planning by visually simulating collisions between various LINAC hardware modules. The system is based on X3D and Java programming that allows for accurate simulation of several Linear Accelerators hardware modules. The system helps medical personel to determine the 3D collision space for a patient and is independent of any computing platform. See more details by clicking on the image.
