This project will contribute to the national need for well-educated engineers and technicians in production engineering. It will do so by supporting workshops on mechatronics education. Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary/ interdisciplinary science that integrates knowledge from electronics, mechanics, control theory, and computer science. An industrial robot is an example of a mechatronics system. Hybrid systems important to mechatronics include production systems, automotive subsystems such…

Connected and Automated Vehicle (CAV) technologies enable real-time information sharing and driving automation, with the potential of significantly improving safety and efficiency of the transportation system. However, cyber-security threats may compromise the efficiency of infrastructure operations and the safety of passengers, posing a significant challenge for CAV deployment. This collaborative project develops a novel CAV testing platform to address the critical needs for assessing the se…

This project aims to tackle some of the most significant challenges facing the design and adoption of risk-informed cyber insurance policies; these challenges include cyber risk interdependence, correlated risk and value-at-risk, and a fast-changing threat landscape. The research has the potential to bring about a paradigm shift in the design of cyber insurance policies so that they are used as effective economic and incentive mechanisms consistent with cyber risk realities; in doing so it al…

Software is pervasive, supporting entertainment, finances, health care, travel, and social interactions. Latent software glitches, or bugs, are costly to diagnose and repair. Today, most software bugs are repaired by highly-trained software engineers, but it is uneconomical to repair all such bugs manually, and even for important security-critical problems there can be long delays between bug discoveries and fixes. This project develops improved methods for automatically finding repairs for s…

Technological advancements in data transfer mechanisms need to stay abreast of the exponential growth in high-bandwidth, exascale computing used in almost all aspects of modern life. This project aims at high speed information transfer through an unconventional yet promising technology based on terahertz surface wave, and chalk out the plan for developing software machinery in order to support the physical design of the novel system. A number of Python-script based applications that will be d…

The IEEE/ACM Symposium on Microarchitecture (MICRO) is a flagship conference in the area of computer architecture. The 2019 annual conference, along with several collocated workshops on related topics, will take place in Columbus, Ohio in October 2019. The conference is an important venue for reporting current research on important topics addressing grand challenges in computing resulting, e.g., from the impending Moore's law slowdown of performance of computing machines. MICRO is a venue whe…

As an increasing amount of data, such as text, audio, and video, are collected from many sources, the need to better understand the collected data is increasing as well. The analysis of large datasets has evolved into complex artificial intelligence (AI) techniques in recent years. This is because the need has expanded from just a human analyzing the data to enabling a machine to make sense of it on its own. The overarching goal of this project is to enable such AI applications - specifically…

With support from the NSF Improving Undergraduate STEM Education Program: Education and Human Resources (IUSE: EHR), this project aims to serve the national interest by developing and implementing multi-institutional Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs). Evidence demonstrates that CUREs can be highly effective for engaging large numbers of students in authentic research. In addition, participation in CUREs can result in increased persistence of students in STEM disciplines,…

Modern Internet services aim to be always available and provide low latency responses. Typically, this is achieved by storing data on multiple sites close to the end-users. Such an arrangement imposes a fundamental trade-off between response times for read and write requests to storage systems and data storage/transfer costs. Existing distributed storage solutions for addressing this trade-off may result in sub-optimal outcomes. First, realizing different performance-vs-cost trade-offs today …

Flavins are derivatives of vitamin b2 that have long been known to help enzymes move electrons in biological reactions. Interestingly, it is now becoming apparent that flavins can sometimes serve as carbon-carriers. With this award, the Chemistry of Life Processes Program in the Chemistry Division is funding Dr. Bruce Palfey, University of Michigan, to investigate this newly recognized and not well understood type of reaction of flavins. This work is focusing on the way the protein thymidylat…
