Show moreThis project focuses on building a three-dimensional high quality "mesh" for scientific simulations. Since the quality of the mesh affects the accuracy and convergence of numerical systems, having a high quality mesh is one of the most important requirements for conducting numerical simulations. Currently, most of the software packages cannot theoretically guarantee the quality of the mesh generated. The purpose of this project is to implement a selected set of algorithms that have a theoretical quality guarantee in order to study their practical performance compared with heuristics-based methods. We expect that peer researchers in various fields could use the software developed to conduct scientific simulations. In addition, the developed software will also provide the building block for later numerical simulation systems and computer graphics related systems. The major activities of the project are to acquire interdisciplinary knowledge related to computer science and other engineering departments. This project provides students from engineering and other fields with knowledge of computer science, including programming, algorithm design and analysis; and provides students from computer science with knowledge of scientific simulations and how to apply their knowledge to solve practical engineering problems.

Show moreChamberlain is interested in exploring new devices that can enhance the functionality of its garage door operator systems. Residential garage door operators currently utilize an IR emitter and detector pair to identify the presence of an object breaking the "beam". This sensor is used to reduce the risk of a moving garage door striking an object in its path.The IPRO team will investigate the use of an inexpensive CCD camera to replace, and potentially expand, this functionality. The scope of this project will include but not necessarily be limited to: (a) understanding regulatory requirements for devices currently used on operators, and attempting to anticipate how current requirements will be interpreted and or modified to cover this new sensor, (b) identifying optical and electronic requirements to meet anticipated regulatory requirements, (c) examining current patents for devices utilizing similar technology, (d) developing a single sample device optimized for minimum development time and (e) estimating the projected cost for this system, when optimized for functionality, cost and produceability.
