VIP Teams

  • Imagine a gym that helps you keep track of your exercise, its intensity, its correctness and your vitals while you focus on exercise. Automatically. Accurately. Even without a wearable. Every time. Welcome to the Digital Gym. We are developing technologies that will convert any gym into the digital gym of the future. Digital Gym is a project in the world’s first Quantified Communities (QC)...
  • The game of golf has existed in its modern form since the 15th century…and one club stands alone: the putter. About half of the shots in golf are made with the putter. Putting is not easy – the putter swings slowly, and with a very light force. It is incredibly challenging and frustrating. Even professional golfers often miss short putts. The DISSECT team aims to provide feedback to the golfer,...
  • To understand the processes by which biological systems especially those producing antibiotics grow in order to maximise the yield
  • To develop new e‐textile technologies that can be used as part of an integrated health monitoring system. The project is to investigate new materials and fabrication processes for realizing e‐textiles that integrate biosensing, signal conditioning and wireless communication within wearable fabrics. Team members will; (1) explore new electronic materials that are well suited for additive...
  • Building on the past Purdue-developed "TimeScale Creator" visualization system for Earth history, and brainstorm new resources which further the global mission of the nternational Comission on Stratigraphy.
  • Conduct field experiments to collect P-band (137-400 MHz) satellite signals and evaluate their qualities for use in Earth remote sensing.
  • Earthquakes are one of the most devastating natural disasters. One major earthquake may kill tens of thousands of people. When an earthquake occurs, casualties often occur in collapsed buildings. Post-earthquake rapid reconnaissance and detailed forensic inspections are essential to learn from failures and successes. These inspections often generate large amounts (tens of thousands) of visual...
  • To stimulate the development of advanced vehicle technologies that reduce the overall impact of transportation on the environment by designing, building, and refining an alternative fuel and connected/autonomous vehicle that reduces energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and criteria tailpipe emissions while maintaining consumer acceptability, utility, and safety.

  • To examine and assess the existence of cyber security found within IoT hardware devices. In order to achieve this, we will implement a multi-domain investigation through the use of hardware reverse engineering, software/firmware reverse engineering, RF analysis, along with static and dynamic testing through instrumentation. Finally, any identified holes in the devices cyber security...
  • The work environment for Anesthesiologists in the surgical theater, ICU and patient transport is little changed for decades. Significant improvements can be made in patient safety, ergonomics and work flow for anesthesiologists, technicians and nurses. There are a number of potential projects which individually can significantly improve the environment for anesthesiologists and other providers...
  • To develop a campus-wide visualization, feedback and analytics platform to better understand and to systematically improve campus resource management.
  • Use engineering design and development skills for solving social problems and meeting social needs. A collection of ongoing projects are selected from corporate and non-profit organizations. All projects aim to improve the lives of the under-privileged domestic population or people at the bottom of pyramid in the developing world. ESI team members can also propose projects that help...
  • The Engineering Innovation in Medicine (EIM) team works with local clinical partners to develop needs-based and human-centered design solutions to pressing healthcare challenges. EIM students visit medical centers and hospitals and engage with practicing engineers and venture capitalists.
  • Battery powered trike
  • EV2
    Conversion of EV1 to self-driving EV
  • To create, design, and test build jetpacks, robotic landing systems, exoskeletons, and autonomous vehicles to support exploration of extreme environments on Earth, the Moon, and Mars, with multi-disciplinary professionals, DARPA, and NASA scientists and engineers.
  • Development of a Flexible Power Inverter for Solar Electric Systems
  • Focused on the creation of a messenger/chat app for a smartphone that incorporates a novel networking system, allowing it to be used even in environments with no cellular/wifi service. The program is designed for end users who may be in areas with government-censored internet service or poor infrastructure, allowing them to express their thoughts, organize, and communicate while protecting...
  • Explore the human technology frontier as it relates to technologies for sports spanning the continuum from the athlete to the fan.  Projects will include wearable technologies to empower athletes via advanced sensing and multi-modal real-time feedback via smart textiles, to immersive technologies (e.g. augmented and virtual reality ) to improve the fan experience in live sports venues and at...
  • It is undeniable that student engagement has become a critical issue in education. Accordingly, gamification strategies have opened new possibilities to enforce learning processes as a complement of other learning methodologies. By recognizing this principle, our goal is to collect evidence of likely relationships among several education measurements such as Bloom Taxonomy and Learning styles....
  • To design games and activities with cutting edge virtual reality and motion tracking technology including Occulus Rift, Leap Motion Controller, and Kinect 2 for low cost and in-home rehabilitation of patients with stroke, cerebral palsy, and traumatic brain injury. The games and activities will be designed to improve hand-eye coordination, motor control, endurance, shoulder strength, range-of...
  • 1. Surface assembly of collagens - Students will learn how to grow collagen fibrils into ordered networks and image them by using atomic force microscopy. Based on this foundation, we will create ordered collagen layers of tailored properties to emulate assembly and remodeling processes of ...
  • Using drone technology, the project goal is to combine robotics and the Wizarding world of Harry Potter and bring to life one of the most memorable aspects of the series - the golden snitch
  • Develop a better understanding of the effects of photon energy on the electrical properties of graphene.
  • Microphone with Graphene
  • To work with the Numerical Relativity and LIGO groups at Georgia Tech in simulations and data analysis of sources of gravitational waves such as the merger of black holes and/or neutron stars.
  • This VIP team is focused on the development of an atmospheric simulation system for the Great Lakes region. Students on the team will be exposed to weather and climate model design and evaluation, predictability in the atmospheric system, interactions between weather and air quality, and observational networks, through the following activities:...
  • We believe that an EVSE may recognize the types of PEVs connected to charge without direct communication, but based on the PEV’s unique implementation of communication protocols, and distinct charge profiles. The goal of this research project are to determine how these implementations manifest themselves in the physical characteristics of communication signals, and in charging profiles in the...
  • At Georgia Tech, we live in an incubator for problem solving, scientific inquiry, and technological innovation, but the public at large is surprisingly ignorant about the STEM disciplines. We will build the Georgia Tech Mobile STEM Laboratory – a sustainable and continually growing infrastructure we’ll use to measurably impact this ignorance regionally and nationally. Ultimately, we’ll have a...
  • To design, build, defend and race an open-wheel formula-style vehicle in the annual Formula SAE competition.
