The Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR) is an online platform including web-services and advanced methods in probability, statistics, and machine learning in the health sector. This team will develop an enhanced analysis and visualization toolbox with an emphasis on “Big Data” - very large datasets that are difficult to analyze and interpret in meaningful ways with basic probability and statistical methods.
Researchers at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) have been improving accident impact simulations by broadening the types of body sizes and shapes considered. Students will develop parametric human body models that are capable of testing wide ranges of body sizes, types, and shapes to help create better adaptive and personalized designs for human safety and mobility.
This faculty research team is designing a nanospacecraft and operating a space mission that will explore the feasibility of a novel propulsion technology – miniature electrodynamic tethers – as propellant-less propulsion to new classes of very small satellites known as picosats and femtosats. Students will create a spacecraft with an operational ED tether for the first experimental testing of propellantless operation in space.
