Philippe Meister, a recent Ph.D. graduate in human-computer interaction (HCI), and Michael Dorneich, professor in industrial and manufacturing systems engineering (IMSE), were both recognized during the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) annual meeting for its Partnership to Enhance General Aviation Safety, Accessibility and Sustainability (PEGASAS) program held this summer in Chicago. Meister is the recipient of the 2021 Outstanding Student Researcher Award while Dorneich won the 2021 Jimenez Faculty / Researcher Award.
Navigating realistic weather conditions during the pilot training process could became easier because of an Iowa State University research project involving augmented reality (AR). Michael Dorneich, associate professor of industrial and manufacturing systems engineering, and Eliot Winer, professor of mechanical engineering and director of the Virtual Reality Applications Center (VRAC), are leading the Iowa State …Continue reading “Research project simulates weather conditions for pilots in training”
Three College of Engineering researchers have been granted funding to study the use of augmented reality applications when teaching structural analysis. An Chen (assistant professor in civil, construction, and environmental engineering [CCEE]) Rafael Radkowski (assistant professor in mechanical engineering) and Aliye Karabulut-Ilgu (lecturer in CCEE) were awarded a Miller Faculty Fellowship for their proposal entitled “Exploring the potential of augmented reality …Continue reading “CoE researchers awarded Miller Faculty Fellowship”
The Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute (DMDII), a UI LABS collaboration, today announced that it has issued seven national applied research, development, and demonstration awards. These projects address several digital manufacturing and design topics, including augmented reality for use on manufacturing shop floors and on wearable and mobile devices.
Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, Chloe McPherson has made great strides as an Iowa State University student and as the NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers) national publications chairperson.
A German mechanical engineer is using his background in computer vision and object tracking to design software programs that may one day materialize lifelike 3-D models. Is the table in front of you a real or digital copy? Right now, you might be looking at a four-legged, rectangular figure made of wood and metal. You …Continue reading “Bringing virtual reality into the real world”
Augmented reality, driving simulators and black swans are among the topics in the latest newsletter from the Center for e-Design. The Augmented Reality Customer Collaborator (ARCC) team is working to create a prototype for camera-enabled tablets that will take images of components in need of support. In collaboration with Boeing, the Iowa State ARCC research team includes researchers Eliot …Continue reading “Academia meets industry at Center for e-Design”
