CARRT Researchers Invent a Universal Android-Based Kit for Wireless Control of Wheelchairs
In an effort to magnify and enhance relations with the University of South Florida, Chromalloy Castings has teamed up with USF's mechanical engineering department in hopes of solving one of the facility's most notorious material handling issues.
The team of four students was taking part in its Senior Capstone Design project, a course aimed toward putting the concepts learned in the mechanical engineering curriculum into practice.
Many students experience group projects and team building exercises while attending their college classes, but very few have a working car as their final product.
USF Racing is a student organization at the University of South Florida that brings together people with a passion for both cars and racing. As a part of USF Racing, members design new racing vehicles and work both within the group and in the community to make them a reality.
A USF Mechanical Engineering professor is developing a new flexible surface technology that could be applied to a number of industries.
Dr. Craig Lusk uses a laser to cut sheets of polymer into dynamic, geometric pieces. He uses his research to tie together the shapes in a way that could revolutionize some industries and create new products not yet invented. Dr. Lusk specializes in something called "compliant mechanisms," which refers to the movement, or motion, the precision-cut shapes take on when they interact with each other.
