UTD announces official opening of their TI Innovation Lab
The University of Texas, Dallas (UTD) announced the official opening of their new Texas Instruments Innovation Lab (Texas Instruments Supports Innovative Research with New Lab). The 1100-square-foot facility will be a place for students and faculty in engineering and computer science to develop electronic and electromagnetic solutions for a variety of engineering problems. The TI lab is located within the UTDesign Studio. It will be used for academic classes, independent and collaborative student projects and workshops taught by TI staff. The TI workshops will focus on how to design well-rounded products that account for reliability, cost savings, product size and harsh environments.
The official opening included a demonstration of new technology developed by TerraSwarm PI and UTD associate professor Roozbeh Jafari and his students whereby an electrode-studded glove worn by a student communicating with sign language was translated onto a computer screen. It’s a promising new technology that may one day help the hearing impaired communicate more easily.
