  • MechE neuroimaging study featured in Medical Daily

    Medical Daily featured research by MechE's Jonathan Cagan and Kosa Goucher-Lambert. Researchers looked at brain activity to learn how we make decisions about sustainable products. Using fMRI technology, researchers could pinpoint which areas of the brain were activated as participants worked through the decision-making process. They found that when participants were asked to choose between products for which they knew the environmental impact, participants cared more about what other people might think about them if they chose the product.  Read More
  • Kumar featured in MIT News for multirobot systems research

    ECE's Swarun Kumar was featured in MIT News for his work on a new technique for preventing malicious hackers from commandeering robot teams' communication networks. The researchers' new system analyzes the distinctive ways in which robots' wireless transmissions interact with the environment, to assign each of them its own radio "fingerprint." If the system identifies multiple votes as coming from the same transmitter, it can discount them as probably fraudulent.  Read More
