Judy Jin receives funding from Honda R&D Americas, Inc.

IOE Professor Judy Jin has received funding from Honda R & D Americas, Inc. for her project entitled, "The Research on Distracted Driver Detection."| Short Read

Distracted driving has been an increasing societal concern. This project, funded by Honda R&D Americas, aims to  develop new online algorithms with a prototype for detecting distracted driving of a leading vehicle based on predicted kinematic features using the host vehicle’s driving data. The results are expected to be of benefit to the development of autonomous vehicle as well as having a general broad impact.

Researchers
The electrons absorb laser light and set up “momentum combs” (the hills) spanning the energy valleys within the material (the red line). When the electrons have an energy allowed by the quantum mechanical structure of the material—and also touch the edge of the valley—they emit light. This is why some teeth of the combs are bright and some are dark. By measuring the emitted light and precisely locating its source, the research mapped out the energy valleys in a 2D crystal of tungsten diselenide.

Mapping quantum structures with light to unlock their capabilities

Rather than installing new “2D” semiconductors in devices to see what they can do, this new method puts them through their paces with lasers and light detectors. | Medium Read
