CMU launches initiative to transform nanosatellite capabilities Opens in new window
Researchers at CMU’s College of Engineering are working to develop computationally capable constellations of nanosatellites, equipped with machine learning techniques that extract valuable insights from the data while still in orbit.
Modeling light for solar panel placement in urban settings Opens in new window
Solar panel installation in cities requires setups tailored to the complex geometry of urban spaces that provide the most direct sunlight to each panel. Among the processes for designing the most efficient setup for solar panels is shadow modeling.
Discovery uncovers need for ammonia emission regulations Opens in new window
A new discovery sheds light on one way new particles are forming in the upper troposphere. Published in Nature, the study’s findings suggest that in addition to carbon dioxide, there are other compounds in need of immediate attention and regulation.
CMU and Mayo Clinic to collaborate on transplant innovation Opens in new window
Mayo Clinic and Carnegie Mellon University announced today a research agreement to transform organ transplantation. The institutions will bioengineer innovative approaches to address current barriers in organ transplantation.
Research on eVTOL aircraft takes flight Opens in new window
Mechanical Engineering researchers are exploring the potential of rechargeable batteries in electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, which could transform transportation in metropolitan areas and battle emissions, congestion, and air pollution.
