Behavioral biometrics tools identify users with keystroke dynamics, signature verification, voice recognition, and gesture recognition. These technologies compare a profile of the users against a database created with contextual information, including physiological, cognitive, and contextual traits. Institutions of higher education, governments, and financial institutions use…
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…
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.…
Researchers at RPI have developed a prototype hydrocarbon-based membrane for use in AE fuel cells and electrolyzers. This membrane can operate in a stable manner at elevated temperatures with the potential to provide enhanced operational performance. This membrane could possibly effectively participate in the growing fuel cell/electrolyzer market, as tested, the DPE membrane…
Lithium ion batteries (LIB) have proven a key enabling technology for consumer electronics and are setting the stage for a revolution in transportation. Electric vehicles (EV), whether on land, sea, or air, are increasingly gaining market share over vehicles powered by the traditional combustion engine. Environmental concerns and stringent laws continue to drive increasing…
The rapid detection of pathogens and other microbial contaminants in food and biological samples is critical for ensuring the safety of consumers. Traditional methods to detect foodborne bacteria often rely on time-consuming growth in culture media, followed by isolation, biochemical identification, and sometimes serology. The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is the…
Standard interfacial polymerization and phase inversion based-membranes are complex, sensitive to small changes, susceptible to residual chlorine, and have rough surfaces enabling unfavorable adsorption. There is an urgent need to improve synthetic membrane filtration performance for systems which recover biofuels in energy production and desalinize sea and brackish water for…
Researchers at Rensselaer created a robotic assistant that is more versatile, cheaper, and which can be remotely controllable by anyone whose mobility is impaired. The disclosed robotic assistant generally comprises a motorized base and dual arm robot mounted thereon. The robotic assistant is designed to be utilized by mobility impaired individuals through a sip-and-blow…
