Researchers at RPI have developed a conceptual notebook/tablet/laptop device that integrates the ability to capture written text onto a flexible screen which can be rolled up after use into storage compartments. The device provides users a dedicated wide screen display for written text/image/drawing capture, is portable and easy to store with screen retraction capability via…
Space exploration within the commercial, business, and military sectors continues to increase, and the development of an autonomous navigation system capable of guidance navigation anywhere in the solar system free from the use of Earthbound orbiting satellites is required to ensure that these operations can be performed safely and accurately. Researchers at Rensselaer created…
Researchers at Rensselaer have created a technology that combines different modules of an LED light fixture into a single component that can be 3D printed. Combining the modules into a single 3D printed component could decrease overall LED light fixture manufacturing/production costs, reduce required labor for product assembly, and reduce the number of parts necessary to…
Researchers at RPI are developing a cognitive logic-enabled AI that can operate on multiple screens and in multiple environments for the K-12 sector. Declining public school math and science test scores have concerned American politicians and educators since the 1980s. This educational failure coincides with the large number of employees unable to fill the growing number of…
Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) created a 3D computer simulation tool to assess the behavior/interaction of a hydrophobic membrane material with waste/feed water particles to assist membrane manufacturers/end-users in identifying a high performing membrane filtration/separation system. This simulation protocol could represent a viable, more cost-effective…
The terahertz (THz) band shows promise in terms of providing improved communications capabilities, including the ability for power-enhanced beam-forming and spatial multiplexing and reconfigurable array architectures that meet the capacity demands for 5G applications. All of these attributes of line of sight (LoS) systems in the THz spectral regime allow for wireless bit rates…
Unlike vitamin D supplements, phototherapy provides a more natural means of vitamin D production. While research has shown that the vitamin D received from supplements is functionally equivalent to that synthesized from natural sunlight, evidence suggests that vitamin D sourced from sunlight remains active in our bodies longer than vitamin D derived from dietary supplements.…
The SARS-CoV-2 virus continues to cause major issues around the globe. Thus, effective therapeutics are critically needed to help better control the virus. Researchers at RPI and collaborating institutions have identified HCV protease inhibitor drugs that may be viable SARS-CoV-2 antivirals. These researchers have used the 3D structure of the SARS-CoV-2 protease to evaluate…
Commonly implanted medical devices containing metal parts (i.e., dental fillings, coils, hip replacements) generate streaks in computed tomography (CT) images, thereby impeding diagnosis and interfering with radiation therapy planning. Inventors at RPI created a novel technique to boost the efficacy of neural networks for metal artifact reduction (MAR) in CT images. Currently…
Inventors at RPI have invented a technology that can overcome the issues seen in few-view CT scans. CT scans use a large number of X-rays exposing the patient to ionizing radiation during this procedure. Though the risk of cancer from a CT scan might be extremely low, there is still a concern that the combined risks of scanning for diagnoses and/or treatment could lead to a…
