  • The aim of the project is to develop a commercially viable device capable of (1) autonomous navigation of a building and (2) building lighting assessment. This requires the development of two distinct systems. 1. A handheld device capable of assessing the lighting within a building while being transported by an individual. 2. An autonomous vehicle capable of navigation of a building for the...
  • Our goal is to develop a robotic inspection platform capable of full autonomy. This includes the capability to (a) harvest energy from the surrounding environment, (b) navigate and maneuver through a live pipeline network, (c) collect data concerning structural health and gas quality and (d) store/transmit any important data to other robots or a base station.
  • The project will focus on assessing water demand and its supply in various regions of Texas. We will employ Advanced Vapor-Compression Desalination (VCD), a technology that has been developed through AggiE Challenge for the past three years. In coastal regions, Advanced VCD will desalinate seawater directly. In inland regions, Advanced VCD will concentrate brine from an RO plant, which will...
