ECE researchers featured in Life in 2030 Radio Show
Robots that fight fires, cars that drive themselves, clothes that prevent illness the stuff of science fiction novels? Or, are they closer than we think? Ohio State electrical and computer engineering researchers were among the experts interviewed for Life in 2030, a one-hour special radio show from the Engineers of the New Millennium.
Professors Ümit Özgüner, Ashok Krishnamurthy, and Keith Redmill, along with ECE graduate student Scott Biddlestone, talked to reporter Laurie Howell about their autonomous vehicle research. One of the areas the group is currently working to integrate multidisciplinary advances in software, sensing and control, and modeling to address current weaknesses in autonomous vehicle design.
