Novel Technologies for Adult Stem Cell Therapeutics Develop novel techniques for site-specific insertion and control of therapeutic genes in human adult neural stem cells that can be transplanted to treat incurable ocular diseases.
Advanced Vision-Radar Threat Detection (AVRT): A Pre-Crash Detection and Active Safety System Combine vision and radar sensor technology to create a new type of auto safety system that will detect approaching hazards, measure their rate of motion, determine if and where a collision will occur, and trigger mitigating actions, such as applying brakes, pretensioning seat belts, and firing side airbags, with a near-zero false alarm rate.
Silicon Carbide Smart Power Chip Develop and integrate advanced silicon carbide (SiC) power transistors and power control circuitry within a compact prototype SiC power module for potential use in commercially available hybrid electric vehicles and future low-emission electric vehicles.
Wireless Structural Health Monitoring System Develop a dense peer-to-peer wireless sensor network for monitoring the health of structures that has damage assessment and decision support and is able to include chemical and biological sensors.
Conformal Direct-Write-Technology-Enabled, Wireless, Smart Turbine Components Develop embedded sensors capable of withstanding harsh environments and integrate them in a wireless telemetry system to enable thermal, mechanical and wear sensing in operating gas turbines for condition-bas
