Guardian Angel: Enabling Mobile Safety Systems

Prof. Marco Gruteser received a three-year NSF grant for the project Guardian Angel: Enabling Mobile Safety Systems

This is a collaborative grant with Rich Martin (CS Rutgers), Yingying Chen (Stevens), Jie Yang (Florida State). The total funding is $700K, with the Rutgers part being $350,000.

The project investigates the use mobile devices for enhancing personal safety by identifying dangerous situations
and mitigating them through appropriate intervention.

A Novel MIMO Radar Approach Based on Sparse Sensing and Matrix Completion

Prof. A. Petropulu received a 3-year NSF grant for the project entitled: "A Novel MIMO Radar Approach Based on Sparse Sensing and Matrix Completion".

The abstract is as follows:

In both civilian and military applications, there is increasing interest in networked radars which are inexpensive and easily deployable, while at the same time enabling reliable surveillance of an area.

Microelectronically Stimulating and Actuating Nanofibers for Muscle Replacement and Regeneration

Prof. Laleh Najafizadeh, in collaboration with Joseph Freeman of biomedical engineering just received a 3 year award from the NSF for the project entitled, "Microelectronically Stimulating and Actuating Nanofibers for Muscle Replacement and Regeneration". In this project Professors Freeman and Najafizadeh will design and fabricate implantable, degradable devices to functionally replace muscle and regenerate new muscle tissue.
