Florida Inventors Hall of Fame announces 2021 inductees

(University of South Florida (USF Innovation)) Seven Florida Inventors whose discoveries are saving lives, transforming the environment, and creating new technologies are named as 2021 Inductees to the Florida Inventors Hall of Fame. Among them are Dean Kamen, often referred to as the modern Thomas Edison due to the scope of his trailblazing inventions, including the Segway®; and Mark Dean, who holds three patents for the original IBM PC and is co-inventor of the ISA bus which revolutionized modern computing.

What impact will robots and autonomous systems have on urban ecosystems?

(University of Seville) Unmanned aerial vehicles (drones), autonomous cars, robots that can repair urban infrastructure and wireless sensor networks used for monitoring, etc. are just some of the devices that will spring up all over our cities in a few years. They have a wide range of potential applications, such as autonomous transport, waste collection, infrastructure maintenance and repair, surveillance and precision agriculture, among others. However, we must also consider the impact these technologies will have on urban biodiversity and its ecosystems in the future.

Measuring melting ice

(University of Delaware) As glacial ice melts, what happens to the freshwater and how it is affecting coastal systems in Antarctica becomes an important question. The University of Delaware’s Carlos Moffat has been awarded a five-year, $787,528 National Science Foundation (NSF) Early Faculty Career Development Award.
