Northeastern SMART Center
Northeastern SMART Center is a newly launched university research center that, in collaboration with federal agencies and industrial members, aims to conceive and pilot disruptive technological innovation in smart devices and systems to make everyday life safer, easier and more efficient.
Northeastern SMART fosters partnership between university, industry and government stakeholders to create new generations of smart devices and systems that are required by a number of industries including the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G, Digital Agriculture, Robotics and Healthcare.
The Northeastern University SMART Center Deploys an Evatec CLUSTERLINE® 200 for Manufacturing High Performance Piezoelectric Micro and Nano Systems
The Northeastern University SMART Center added the Evatec’s CLUSTERLINE® 200 to its nanofabrication capability. This is the first Evatec’s CLUSTERLINE® 200 tool deployed in an academic institution in the United States providing the SMART Center with a unique cutting-edge capability to perform research, development and pilot manufacturing of high-performance piezoelectric micro and nano systems.
ECE Associate Professor Matteo Rinaldi has developed a smart wireless fire detector that could monitor complex environments using an ultra-battery-saver mode that could last up to ten years.
