A pocket-size technology that has radically changed how people communicate, hail rides and listen to music could soon play a starring role in transforming how aid reaches people trapped in some of the most dangerous places on Earth. The smartphone is the platform for a new online tool that a team of Clemson University students […]
An important part of medical school could soon be upgraded for the digital age, as a group of Clemson University researchers develop the first simulator of its kind to help teach future vascular surgeons how to suture blood vessels. The SutureCoach would come equipped with cameras and sensors to capture a range of data, including how the surgical tool and needle move and the forces the user exerts.
Researchers at Clemson University and Prisma Health have received funding to collaborate on the development of new medical treatment and diagnostic technologies. Three Clemson-Prisma Health collaborations received investments from the recently created Innovation Maturation Fund, a joint effort between the Health Sciences Center (HSC) at Prisma Health and the Clemson University Division of Research.
Clemson University researchers based in North Charleston have received $1.24 million from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop a new way to test a key piece of equipment on offshore wind turbines. The goal is to enhance their reliability, making them more cost-effective and attractive to build
Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize the world as we know it. For many, the term AI evokes imagery of science fiction, yet in reality, this new form of technology has wide ranging applications that are incredibly beneficial to society. Whether it is through improving efficiency, accuracy or intelligent decision making across industries, […]
Clemson University researchers are developing three new sensors designed to withstand two of humanity’s harshest environments, the intense heat inside power plants and the tremendous pressure at the bottom of hydraulic fracturing wells. The research, led by Hai Xiao, is aimed at advancing the technology behind fossil fuels, which produce much of the nation’s power. The ultimate goal is to generate power more efficiently while lowering emissions and using fewer resources.
It’s always a special time when some of South Carolina’s brightest minds gather in one place, but an Oct. 4 ceremony just off Lake Hartwell was especially notable for the Clemson University College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. Eight faculty members received awards and several others were recognized for tenure, promotions and other achievements. […]
Clemson University is collaborating on a $20-million project that could make the internet faster and more secure, opening the door to a host of new services that haven’t yet been imagined, including some in artificial intelligence and virtual reality.
Students from throughout the Southeast are converging on Clemson University this Saturday for a competition that will test their cybersecurity skills and help prepare them to protect sensitive data from hackers. At least eight teams are planning to participate in Clemson University-Capture The Flag.
Like so many great projects, the research that earned Ryan DeFever and Steven Hall three awards and a spot in a respected academic journal was fueled in part by coffee. “Steven and I had probably 25 walks to Starbucks and back– at least–during the course of this research,” DeFever said. “There was a lot of […]
An electrical engineer who sees big opportunities to commercialize technology in South Carolina and surrounding states is joining Clemson University as the new Warren H. Owen Distinguished Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
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.
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 […]
Imagine if the Clemson Tigers played for national championships in football and basketball in the same week, or maybe even the same day. That’s what the excitement level will be like next week for several Clemson University students who plan to blast a rocket about 30,000 feet above the New Mexico desert while closely watching a separate launch on the Virginia coast that will shoot their robotic tentacle into space.
Charleston’s technology industry is growing like sea oats on a sand dune and could soon sprout fresh sprigs as Clemson University plants the seeds for new cybersecurity initiatives at its campus overlooking the Cooper River. Two faculty members, Harlan Russell and Kelly Caine, are relocating to the Charleston area for a year to take the lead in creating the initiatives, which will be offered at the Zucker Family Graduate Education Center in North Charleston.
