Reza Ghodssi is the Herbert Rabin Distinguished Chair in Engineering and Director of the MEMS Sensors and Actuators Lab (MSAL) in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and the Institute for Systems Research (ISR) at the University of Maryland (UMD). He is also affiliated with the Fischell Department of Bioengineering (BIOE), the Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices (Fischell Institute), the Maryland NanoCenter, the Maryland Energy Innovation Institute (MEII), and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at UMD. Dr. Ghodssi's research interests are in the design and development of micro/nano/bio devices and systems for chemical and biological sensing, small-scale energy conversion and harvesting with a strong emphasis toward healthcare applications.


This project focuses on the design of soft sensors and actuators for use in assistive applications for people with disabilities. Wearable robotic devices, such as prosthetic hands and arm exoskeletons, have tremendous potential to substantially improve the quality of life for many people with disabilities, including amputees and people with ambulatory impairments (e.g., resulting from stroke). Traditional robotic sensors and actuators comprise rigid components, in stark contrast to compliant biological limbs. The mismatch poses a substantial challenge in integrating wearable robotic devices for the arms and hands. The intellectual merit of the proposed REU project is in investigating alternative solutions to overcome these difficulties, both in the realm of soft robotic actuators and highly stretchable, compliant sensors. The project will involve two REU participants each summer. One participant will be tasked with designing a soft robotic actuator and controller module, which could together be used as a wearable robotic device. This will necessitate solid modeling and 3D printing and fabrication skills, along with programming for control. The second REU participant will be charged with the design and evaluation of a highly stretchable sensor made from liquid metal embedded in a highly stretchable substrate. This will necessitate design, electronics, and signal processing skills to implement. The participants will work together as a team to ensure that the material properties of the soft robotic actuator and highly stretchable sensor are compatible so that the sensor can be integrated within the soft robotic actuator and appropriately function together as a system. This will require an iterative design process under the supervision of Dr. Engeberg to ensure the sensor and actuator modules can be merged into a cohesive device that could be used as a wearable robotic device to assist people with disabilities. The broader impacts of the project are significant, exploring new wearable sensors and actuators that have the potential to substantially improve the quality of life for people with disabilities.

A part of project planning of sensors and actuators, expansions are added to the engineering tools. The device-specific data are provided, depending on the engineering tool, using specific device descriptions and parameter setting interfaces (based on IODD description files or DTMs or proprietary tools.


David L. Trumper joined the MIT Department of Mechanical Engineering in August 1993, and holds the rank of Professor. He received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from MIT in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, in 1980, 1984, and 1990, respectively. Following the Bachelor's degree, Professor Trumper worked two years for the Hewlett-Packard Co. After finishing the Master's degree, he worked for two years for the Waters Chromatography Division of Millipore. Upon completing the Ph.D. degree, for three years he was an Assistant Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, working within the precision engineering group. Professor Trumper's research centers on the design of precision mechatronic systems, with a focus on the design of novel mechanisms, actuators, sensors, and control systems. He has conducted research in topics including precision motion control, high-performance manufacturing equipment, novel measurement instruments, biomedical and bioinstrumentation devices, and high-precision magnetic suspensions and bearings. He is a member of the IEEE, ASME, and ASPE (past-President).


To link IO-Link devices with your automation system, Siemens offers you a choice of IO-Link master devices for non-central peripherals, the SIMATIC ET 200 and the SIMATIC S7-1200 controller. These IO-Link master modules integrate fast and simple IO-Link communication with sensors and actuators in the established PROFIBUS and PROFINET field bus systems, and thereby in Totally Integrated Automation.


IO-Link masters from Siemens can be used to link IO-Link-certified sensors and actuators in all areas of production automation. Project planning of IO-Link channels can be performed easily, quickly and conveniently using the S7-PCT port configurator tool, which is integrated in STEP7 Engineering and is also available as a separate tool.


To be equipped for future demands, data transparency and communication must reach down deeper than merely to the control level. So what is the optimum way of integrating and making the most of the growing intelligence of sensors and actuators in the automation system? The answer is supplied by Siemens, in the form of the open communication standard, IO-Link.


Maarten Merkx is full professor at the department of Biomedical Engineering of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), where he leads the research group Protein Engineering operating at the interface of chemical biology and synthetic biology. His research group combines approaches from protein engineering, chemical biology, and synthetic biology to develop biomolecular sensors and actuators for applications in intracellular imaging, point-of-care diagnostics, optogenetics, and antibody-based therapies. An important research theme is the engineering of biomolecular switches, which include fluorescent and bioluminescent sensor proteins for intracellular imaging, photo-switchable proteins, and protein- and DNA-based sensors for antibody detection and actuation.

Outdoor water savings can be achieved using smart irrigation technologies. Smart irrigation controllers and sensors have been developed to reduce outdoor water use by irrigating based on plant water need compared to traditional automatic system timers, which irrigate on a user-determined fixed schedule. This technology exists as a complete controller or as a sensor that can be added to an existing irrigation timer to create a smart controller. Smart irrigation technology uses weather data or soil moisture data to determine the irrigation need of the landscape. Smart irrigation technology includes: 041b061a72
