South Carolina-based global electronic components company AVX Corporation will fuel the next chapter of Clemson University's flagship vehicle prototype program Deep Orange with new equipment and lab space at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research.
Four Clemson University researchers are bringing home some of the nation’s top awards for junior faculty members, an honor that comes with new opportunities to advance technology that could lead to a more sustainable environment, robotic cars and a faster, more-secure internet.
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 […]
A new initiative between Clemson University and SeeDaten Inc. will allow students and faculty to explore augmented reality and mixed reality learning tools at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR).
Honda R&D Americas, Inc. will be the co-sponsor for Deep Orange 11, a sustainability-focused concept vehicle to be conceived and designed by automotive engineering students at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR).
Some of the best and brightest students in the Clemson University College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences were lauded Thursday in an awards ceremony at the Madren Conference Center. Family, friends and faculty members clapped for students as they accepted Tiger paw-emblazoned plaques and then posed for photos with the college’s dean, Anand Gramopadhye. […]
A Clemson University professor who is helping prepare the workforce for an industry that has brought more than 9,000 jobs to South Carolina in seven years is the newest Composites Educator of the Year. Srikanth Pilla, the Jenkins Endowed Professor of Automotive Engineering and founding director of the Clemson Composites Center, plans to pick up […]
Clemson University students, faculty and staff can now learn and innovate using state-of-the-art 3D printing technology alongside General Electric engineers in the new Additive Manufacturing Lab at GE Power’s Advanced Manufacturing Works facility. Unveiled at a ceremony with leaders and constituents from GE and Clemson Wednesday, the 1,000-square-foot space is Clemson’s first additive manufacturing lab housed at a corporate partner’s site.
New technology that was invented at Clemson University could help reduce the time and cost it takes to manufacture components that are composed of different materials and need to be joined together, researchers said. Even better, the process could be automated with the help of artificial intelligence, they said. Srikanth Pilla and Saeed Farahani are […]
Clemson University students are partnering with industry leaders to create sustainable solutions for the lifecycle of vehicles. Sponsored by ExxonMobil, graduate automotive engineering students in the university’s flagship Deep Orange program will develop a next-generation sustainable concept vehicle.
A skills gap that could leave as many as 2 million manufacturing jobs unfilled by 2025 is one of the driving forces behind a new Clemson University program that for the first time matches graduate students with technical college students on an assembly line built for research.
A boat that drives itself and picks up trash from the ocean? That’s the stuff of science fiction, but it's reality for a dozen lucky Upstate elementary, middle and high school students who are building their own autonomous boats in a Clemson University summer camp.
Gov. Henry McMaster is honoring a Clemson University researcher who has quickly become a leader in the technology behind composite materials, part of a fast-growing industry that has brought South Carolina thousands of new jobs and investment in the billions of dollars. Srikanth Pilla, the Jenkins Professor of Automotive Engineering and dean’s faculty fellow, is this year’s recipient of the Young Scientist Award for Excellence in Scientific Research.
Srikanth Pilla of Clemson University said that cost is the biggest barrier to using more composite materials in automotive manufacturing, but those materials could become more attractive if steel and aluminum prices rise in the wake of new tariffs.
A professor who is based in Greenville and plays a key role in supplying the automotive industry with engineers is bringing home an honor that goes to a small percentage of mechanical engineers. Beshah Ayalew, professor of automotive engineering at Clemson University, was elected a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, or ASME.
