Meet the Expert

We participated at the First Lego League's Meet the Experts Expo hosted by Iowa State University. The goal was to get the next generation in touch with the latest technology and to provide an opportunity to meet experts.

ASME CIE 2014

Tim Garret attended the ASME IDETC/CIE conference in Buffalo, NY and presented two publications to our community.

About Us

Joeby is a simple clean and modern Muse template for corporate/agency, business and portfolio sites.

All layers are grouped and well organized – so it’s easy to modify.

The Augmented Reality Lab explores augmented reality (AR) technology and its capabilities for engineering applications. The research focuses on fundamental technologies for computer vision-based object tracking and identification, human-computer-interaction, as well as applied research in engineering-use cases. We cooperate with partners from industries to leverage AR technology for their professional uses. One of our core capabilities, which is currently in focus of many industry partners, is computer vision-based object tracking. Object tracking facilitates to identify and to determine the position of physical objects. This allows us, for instance, to track and identify all parts on a workbench and tell an operator in training which parts to pick next or notify an operator on the factory floor when he or she assembles the wrong part. Dr. Rafael Radkowski, Assistant Professor in Mechanical Engineering is the head of these activities. Explore the webpage to learn about us or visit us in Ames, IA, at Iowa State University.

    All layers are grouped and well organized – so it’s easy to modify. It’s fully responsive layout and it’s easy to modify anything. We begin by examining the nature of reality, especially the startling new discoveries in science over the last twenty years which have helped us to understand more clearly how the mind creates reality.
