U-M researchers examined how a person’s perception of safety in an autonomous vehicle was influenced by its “personality” traits.
What humans want, in an automated car
Measuring motion sickness for driverless cars
Carsickness incidence could increase if we all become passengers, but new research aims to help address that.
Open-source bionic leg: First-of-its-kind platform aims to rapidly advance prosthetics
‘This represents the future of research—rapid prototyping of open source robotic hardware and embedded systems with shared code.’| Medium Read EXPERTS A new open-source, artificially intelligent prosthetic leg designed by University of Michigan and Shirley Ryan AbilityLab researchers is now available to the scientific community. The leg’s free-to-copy design and programming are intended to improve the quality of […]
Holography and LIDAR on the cheap with nanoparticle gel
Magnetic nanoparticles coated in amino acids can modulate light inexpensively at room temperature, and the findings have applications in autonomous vehicles.
A crystal ball for crystal formation
Studying the role of shape in self-assembly came up accidentally as Sharon Glotzer and her colleagues were studying the properties of semiconducting nanoparticles their U-M colleagues produced.
The beginning of the amniotic sac
Amnion developed from human stem cells are being studied. Understanding infertility and pregnancy loss are one area being investigated.
