On Sunday, Virginia Tech featured a story on the Virginia Tech Smart Infrastructure Laboratory on the made webpage at vt.edu. Look at the first story in the main slideshow. You can identify it as our student Joe Hamilton is in the cover of the story placing a sensor in the Signature Engineering Building.
If you can't find it there is a direct link to the story here. You can also go straight to the video interview here.
We would like to take the chance to thank all our sponsors, the College of Engineering and the Mechanical Engineering Department for all their support!
Dr. Tarazaga received the 2014 Dean's award for Outstanding New Assistant Professor in recognition of extraordinary performance.
The award was presented at the seventeenth annual Virginia Tech College of Engineering faculty reception on May 19, 2014.
Congratulations Dr. Tarazaga!
The team is looking to study how acceleration signatures measured with in-floor sensors can be used to identify a shooting incident. The team built a shooting platform that can be instrumented with multiple accelerometers, much like the SEB instrumentation project. A group of students: Derek Carpenter, Chris Keener, Mico Woolard, Joe Hamilton and Remi Leullieux, were involved in the process from platform design, build and testing.
Thanks to the graciousness of the VT Police department this took place in the private VT Police shooting range and had the assistance of Officer Austin during the process. The group had several safety briefings and safety training before the live tests.
Going to work is very exciting and some days its absolutely awesome. Details of the data collected should come in the future.
