ISR News Story

Gupta, Shapiro, and Goldsman associated with three MIPS awards

ISR faculty are associated with three new Maryland Industrial Partnerships (MIPS) contract awards. The MIPS program provides matching funding for university-based research projects that help companies develop new products. MIPS projects must deal with innovative technological or scientific concepts and have direct commercial applications.

Associate Professor S.K. Gupta (ME/ISR) is working with Automated Precision, Inc., of Rockville, Md., developing mathematical models, algorithms, and prototype software to facilitate the inspection of automobile body panels using a novel, digital micro-mirror device-based inspection hardware system being developed by API. The new auto body inspection sensor system would significantly reduce the time it takes to inspect automobile body panels, and enable near 100 percent accuracy.

Assistant Professor Benjamin Shapiro (AE/ISR) is working with Protiveris of Rockville, Md., on biodetector fluidic delivery optimization. This project will model, develop and optimize a micro fluidic sample delivery system for Protiveris’ VeriScan 3000 instrument (shown above), an advanced biological or chemical detector combining Micro-Electro-Mechanical (MEMS) and micro-fluidic technologies.

ISR-affiliated Professor Neil Goldsman (ECE) is working with TRX Systems, Inc., Lanham, Md. on indoor location and emergency alerting technology. He will design and develop technology to wirelessly track the location of firefighters, police, and other public personnel inside buildings and structures.
