The Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things led by ECE faculty announces Open6G, a DOD-supported industry-university cooperative research center focused on future open, programmable, and disaggregated 6G systems. The technical effort will be housed at the Innovation Campus in Burlington, and its goal is to create a federal-industry-university cooperative research, development, testing, and commercialization hub to jumpstart beyond-5G systems research.
MIE Associate Professor Sze Zheng Yong was awarded an Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Program Award for “Distributed Coordination of Autonomous Swarms with Limited or Absent Communication and Intermittent Data.” His proposed cooperative autonomous swarm technology will enable autonomous naval/maritime teams to provide and interpret “non-verbal” cues or motions of communication-less or communication-limited but cooperative agents.
ECE Assistant Professor Xufeng Zhang was awarded an Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Program Award for “Cryogenically Enabled Ultrabroadband THz System-on-a-Chip.” With its comprehensive on-chip signal processing capabilities including THz generation, routing, manipulation, and detection, novel THz SOCs will be suitable for a broad range of applications such as THz wireless communication and sensing without any off-chip components.
The Northeastern Solar Decathlon team was a winner of the Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon Build Challenge, a distinction that came with $50,000 in funding. They are working to become the first collegiate Solar Decathlon Build Challenge team to build a multi-unit, energy-efficient structure in an urban environment. The team is led by students Aasav Harania, MS in Energy Systems, and Ted Walinskas, BS in Chemical Engineering and MS in Engineering and Public Policy, and is advised by CEE Assistant Professor Michael Kane.
