Allowing a self-driving car to do the driving may sound like a good idea when you’re stuck in traffic, but actually taking your hands off the steering wheel is another thing entirely. The discomfort that many people feel in turning over work to autonomous cars and robots in manufacturing is inspiring new research led by […]
Hongxin Hu of Clemson University is developing new security functions to protect computer networks from attacks, as each day brings another round of news about hackers exposing sensitive data. The new security functions include a virtual intrusion detection system that would detect attacks and a virtual firewall system that would repel them. A $500,000 CAREER […]
Eric Davis of Clemson University is joining the quest to create a battery that would help utilities introduce more renewable energy to the electrical grid and reduce the amount of fossil fuel that needs to be burned. Davis, an assistant professor of chemical engineering, has launched a new research project with the help of a […]
The tiny devices that have already revolutionized how people send data over the internet, whether it’s an Instagram post or an email, could become even smaller and more efficient with help of research led by Clemson University’s Judson Ryckman. Ryckman, an assistant professor of electrical engineering, is working to create smaller and more efficient photonic […]
A Clemson University associate professor whose research could help enable long-term space missions and search for some of the globe’s most destructive weapons is receiving the U.S. government’s highest honor for early-career scientists and engineers.
