Gridiron Gadgets: Engineering a New Kind of Educational Experience
Gridiron Gadgets: Engineering a New Kind of Educational Experience
June 12, 2017

Robotic football is a practical application of the theory taught in classes. Professor James Schmeideler, who teaches an introductory robotics course and helps to advise the robotic football club, describes the benefit as learning at the “systems level.” The robots themselves are systems, with software, mechanical and electrical components working together to achieve a desired function. ... at a higher level, the football team itself is in a sense a system of systems. So individual robots aren’t designed in isolation, but rather with the intent of cooperation and collaboration with other robot systems.

Atmospheric Scientists Conduct Field Experiment to Study Wind Flow over Complex Mountain Terrain
Atmospheric Scientists Conduct Field Experiment to Study Wind Flow over Complex Mountain Terrain
June 2, 2017

Over the past month, an international team of researchers have descended on Portugal's Vale Do Cobrão near the Spanish border to study the valley's wind flow patterns. The project, known as Perdigão after the closest town, is funded by the National Science Foundation and involves more than 50 atmospheric scientists working to better understand how wind moves over variable terrain. The results will benefit weather forecasting and wind energy efforts.

Perdigão: Capturing the Complexities of Mountain Winds
June 1, 2017

A team of close to 50 scientists, students and technical staff is bringing an unprecedented assembly of equipment to Vale do Cobrão, a valley in eastern Portugal. Researchers at the valley are collecting data on multiple aspects of wind flow patterns shaped by meteorological forcing on intricate terrain through carefully planned field observations. Measurements include velocity, turbulence, temperature, moisture and radiation.
