14264 – Optimized Machine Olfaction System for odor examination in hazardous environments Abstract The odor quality of a consumer product can be a significant factor in repeat purchase as well as overall customer satisfaction. The traditional methodology of employing a human panel as odor testers incurs steep costs in their training and maintenance, and also suffers in consistency of test results.... Read More
15106 – Cost efficient Interferometric Imaging for Diagnostics and Remote Sensing Applications. Abstract Millimeter-wave imagers operating at 30-300 GHz are able to see through dust storms, clouds, fog, clothing, and bandages, and are useful for aircraft navigation, remote sensing, concealed object detection, and biomedical imaging. Current application of phased arrays in millimeter-wave based... Read More
14168 – Innovative method for designing comfortable and non-toxic insect-resistant textile materials. Abstract Mosquitoes and other insect vectors are omnipresent in the environment worldwide and have long been associated with significant human illness and death. They are able to transmit infectious diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, and plague. Malaria, alone, causes over five... Read More
14055 – Optical fiber based ultra-small particle detector Abstract Particle detection in air or water is a challenging task due to particle dispersion and size variation. Current sensitive systems based on light scattering tend to be bulky and are often several centimeters in size. This limits their use in wearable air monitoring systems. Professor Dr. John Muth at NC State University has... Read More
15148 – Scalable Organic Synthesis with Fluoroalcohols Abstract Fluoroalcohols are useful solvents and additives for a wide range of organic reactions such as those involving carbon-carbon bond formation, cycloaddition, reduction, oxidation, carbon-heteroatom bond formation, catalytic, and other reactions. However, they are not commonly adopted in industry processes due to their high expense and... Read More
14183 – Fast and Reliable means to wirelessly transfer data and power to electronic devices. Abstract Wireless charging also known as inductive charging has witnessed an increased demand, particularly in the Smartphone and Tablet-PC market. An inductive charger can function as a universal charger and relieve the user from the hassle of a port-specific charger. These innovative induction pads also... Read More
15066 – Optimization of power consumption by embedded peripherals Abstract The overall cost of an embedded system can be reduced significantly by minimizing its power requirements and maximizing its performance. Typically peripheral power control is static which does not cater to fine –grained intra-operation performance details. Dynamic Voltage Frequency Scaling (DVFS) is implemented in systems... Read More
14086 – Algorithm to resolve the subspace clustering problem in image sequences and videos in real-time Abstract Subspace clustering is a major problem in the areas of unsupervised learning, computer vision, disease detection, face clustering, and image segmentation. During the process of dimensionality reduction or clustering a collection of unlabeled data points, it is assumed that the high... Read More
13130 – Novel methodology to transfer HVDC power on existing three phase AC transmission lines. Abstract High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) is preferred to High Voltage Alternating Current for bulk transmission of power over long distances due to lower capital costs and reduction in transmission losses. The electric power transmission industry is working to facilitate reliable transmission of... Read More
14240 – NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize specific combinations of bio-control agents to enhance agronomically important traits such as growth and disease resistance in commercial crops Abstract The question of how to feed the worlds growing population is becoming increasingly important and features highly on the agenda of many countries. By 2050, the population of the world... Read More
