Tech to prepare manufacturers, workers for the 'factory of the future'

Purdue University researchers will be developing new technologies alongside a platform that will allow manufacturers to realistically simulate interactions between workers, robots and machines to prepare for the factories of just five to 10 years from now. ECE Prof. Alex Quinn will study how skills and labor are transferred with the system.

Purdue develops online tool to help survive hurricanes, natural disasters

As Hurricane Florence continues a fierce push to the East Coast, Purdue ECE researchers are testing technology to help find victims of natural and man-made disasters. A new online platform called the Social Media Analytics and Reporting Toolkit could help first responders better monitor areas where hurricanes make landfall, thus help people caught in weather-related disasters.

Physics model acts as an 'EKG' for solar panel health

A new algorithm can track the "health" data of solar panels from anywhere in the world, helping to extend their lifetime. Real-time diagnostics would ultimately inform better panel designs – the cost-saving "treatment" that could prolong lifespan and continue to cut electrical bills.
