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.

Neuro Pathways

Medical students historically have difficulty conceptualizing and projecting the three-dimensional aspects of neural pathways and embryonic organ development from two-dimensional text materials and electronic resources. This collaboration will support the development of interactive three-dimensional simulations systems to allow students to visualize and conceive neural pathways and embryonic development.

X3D for Physics & Chemistry

Many fundamental concepts in physics and chemistry require the development of active mental models for the students to understand the physical and mathematical components. We want to explore student attention and learning of difficult concepts while improving their mental models using 3D augmentation. The proposed research will improve faculty and student expertise in 3D computer-based simulations.

VIEW (Virtual Interactive Engineering on the Web)

The main objective of this project is to implement virtual laboratories to supplement the course: Introduction to Engineering Materials. Hands on laboratories are an essential part of engineering and science education wherein students are introduced to data analysis, report writing, finding empirical correlations between experimental variables and data and to validate theories.

NSF STEP

The College of Science and Technology at AASU has been funded by the National Science Foundation to offer a summer research scholar program for students majoring in science, math and technology. The NSF-STEP (Science Talent Expansion Program, DUE-0856593) allows us to offer summer research opportunities, mathematics preparation and potential course credit for up to twenty students in the class of 2013. Jazmine Carpenter is a STEP student, and she conduct research in the summer 2009 in our NEWS Laboratory.

BACH (Broadband Analysis of Collaborative Haptics)

This project investigates techniques that will allow an additional human sense, haptic touch to be sent over the Internet. At present, networks are designed to carry information that stimulates two human senses: the auditory sense (e.g. VoIP) and the visual sense (e.g. video, graphic, text etc). However, the introduction of haptics in the medical field for training purposes has proven the importance of simulating this sense. We are at the dawn of the widespread use of haptic devices in a multitude of application domains. With the introduction of the Falcon haptic interface (Novint™ Technologies) such devices are not a "laboratory specimen" anymore but become a "household appliance."

UNIVERO (UNIVersal Electronic Reference Organizer)

The univero project is an attempt to simplify the creation, formatting, and retrieval of scholarly and other references on the Web. In short, univero provides many researchers with an opportunity to build, modify, and maintain libraries with publication entries and corresponding resources in a properly compiled and organized format. This tool can be a tremendous help to someone who needs to quickly update their résumé online or prepare references for any electronic document.
