  • Suchir Sur, junior majoring in mechanical engineering

Summer research projects available included:

* Aware Home: seeking students interested in evaluating, deploying, and integrating home sensing and automation tools and services to support research and demonstrations.

* Aware Home SmartBathroom Fixture Automation: seeking students interested deploying and configuring a home robotic research platform in the home to support research, academic, and demonstration capabilities. Read more about this project here.

* Coastal Equity and Resilience (CEAR) Hub: seeking students who are interested in working with diverse project teams addressing flooding on the Georgia coast. We are looking for application software developers, IoT sensor experience (e.g.Arduino), data analytics, community outreach and engagement, K-12 summer camp leads, etc.

* Esports User Research: seeking students for work in one of four projects relating to 1) novel fan experiences in mixed reality, 2) teamwork interventions to improve esport athlete performance, 3) health and safety support for esports athletes, and 4) scholastic gaming to support STEAM engagement in at-risk K-12 students."

* Augmented/Virtual Reality and Wearable Computing: seeking students interested in performing research and development in the areas of augmented/virtual reality and wearable computing. We are creating innovative systems to help diverse populations in the areas of work, healthcare, education, and entertainment.

* CellWatch is a mobile app that allows you to record, view, and analyze cellular connectivity. This app is part of a research project focused on measuring and characterizing the availability and quality of mobile broadband in rural areas. Through this project we hope to collaborate with rural and tribal communities in the US in order to inform policy and technological changes in the pursuit of digital inclusion. Building a mobile app (Android) that can record, view and analyze cellular connectivity. We are initially building a mobile app (Android) that can record, view and analyze cellular connectivity. It's a cellular speed test app. Students would help with Android, Kotlin software development for building this app. Students will also help to develop a web dashboard app; Javascript, React experience is needed and familiarity with integrating Google Maps in apps would help as well. 

* Other projects may be available
