The framework for cyber-empathic design focuses on integration of sensors and information technologies with existing products that allow products to "observe themselves" and report back to designers via cyberinfrastructure. Such a paradigm takes advantage of ever-improving cyberinfrastructure, and decreasing size and cost in sensing technologies to provide insights on product usage not otherwise possible.
This research is interested in developing both the sensor-integrated technology platforms and algorithms for data processing and analysis. Students are invited to discuss the topic toward development of their own CE-technolgies.
Student Skill-Set Needed: Most applicable for students with background in mechanical, aerospace, electrical and computer science/engineering. Skills include CAD modeling, algorithm development, soldering and circuit design, embedded system design, general interest in engineering d
