Cornell researchers have discovered a relatively simple, low-cost method that allows autonomous cars to detect 3D objects with high accuracy
Mathematics is about numbers, shapes, symmetry, chance, change and more. Much more! Math is not only the most rigorous mental discipline ever invented, it's among the richest, most wide-ranging and most useful. Mathematics is also central to the information revolution. Downloadable music files, DVD movies, digital special effects and secure online credit card transactions, essentially any software application you can think of, owes its existence not just to computers, but to the mathematical algorithms that run on computers.
Researchers have developed a highly compact, portable camera that can image polarization in a single shot
Professor Jessica Zhang discusses the interdisciplinary nature of the Bioengineered Organs Imitative and how her research in mechanical engineering can contribute to the initiative.
University at Buffalo chemist Timothy Cook is working with K-12 science teachers in Buffalo to design 3D-printed structures made from magnetic parts that self-assemble when shaken
Until recently, there has never been a way to send communication signals between air and water
Cornell University researchers have discovered a relatively simple, low-cost method that allows autonomous cars to detect 3D objects with high accuracy
