• Prof. Sprinkle was honored alongside faculty and staff from other UA Colleges as a receipient of the Catapult Award.

  • On February 18-19, 2014, we will hold a one and a half-day workshop designed for researchers who aspire to participate in NSF's Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) program.  The workshop is by invitation only, and is open to people with research interests in cyber-physical systems who have not previously been funded by NSF as part of the CPS Program.  The goal of the workshop is to help aspiring PIs understand what NSF (and importantly, the panels convened by NSF) are expecting to see in a successful CPS proposal.

  • In an effort to increase communication and collaboration across various disciplines of researchers working with technology to improve human health, a group of University of Arizona researchers has come together to create the UA Mobile Health Special Interest Group.

  • Casey Mackin earned a 2012 Astronaut Scholarship.

    Skylab astronaut Ed Gibson presented UA engineering student Casey Mackin with a $10,000 scholarship from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation.

  • Winning team (L to R): (I-Corps Administrator), Manny Teran, Jonathan Sprinkle, Xiao Qin, NSF's Babu Dasgupta.

    Our NSF I-Corps project takes the mystery out of home heating and cooling bills.

  • Prof. Jonathan Sprinkle (AP Story, 6/2012)

    Prof. Sprinkle and Sean Whitsitt are featured in this AP News story. Also featured are Prof. Neil Degrasse Tyson and researchers from Stanford University

  • Team members with the platform.

    The UA Micro Air Vehicle club's micro aircraft, which specialized in autonomous vertical takeoffs and horizontal flight -- received the first place award during the International Micro Air Vehicle Conference and Flight Competition, or IMAV 2012, in the category of "Indoor Autonomy - Fixed Wing." The IMAV 2012 competition was in Braunschweig, Germany, in July 2012.

  • Unmanned aerial vehicle, as featured on the newscast.

    MyFoxPhoenix covered technology for unmanned vehicles by interviewing UA faculty and students.

    Lab alum Phillip Toussaint took an independent study on the verification of Cyber-Physical Systems in 2008. A few years later, his "Dream Job" was documented for IEEE Spectrum.

  • One of two autonomous mining vehicles traverses a course around the San Xavier mine without human help. The driver is in the cab as a safety measure; if you look carefully, he's indicating "look, no hands."

    In just 10 weeks, a group of University of Arizona engineering students took five crates of surplus hardware and two heavy-duty test vehicles, which didn't run, and mixed them with youthful enthusiasm, tenacity and many long hours to build a couple of robotic vehicles that recently drove themselves around the UA's test mine.


Over 250,000 people saw a glimpse of the Cat Vehicle driving itself in this UA Video in celebration of the end of 2013.
