Power Running

Stryd, co-founded by Prof. Robert Dick, has been chosen as one of ten companies in the 2015 Techstars class in Boulder, CO. Stryd measures the power output of runners with a wearable device to help improve performance.


Mud-Fueled Smart Sensors

Bacteria found in mud on the ocean floor generate just enough electrical current to power a sensing platform built by Profs. David Blaauw and Dennis Sylvester. The sensing device measures temperature, and draws just 2 nanowatts of power.


U-M/KACST Collaboration

A new collaborative research center has been established between ECE faculty and Saudi Arabia's King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology. The Center will be a major site for research in microwave sensor technology, with the first projects focusing on the automotive industry.


The Future of Remote Sensing

Prof. Kamal Sarabandi will explore the fundamental capabilities of remote sensing through a new grant funded by NASA. The new program aims to create theoretical models for remote sensing of ice and snow.
