Human Dynamics in a Changing World

Submitted by nnreimer.local on Sun, 03/30/2014 - 11:07am

From traffic flow on our freeways, to search and rescue robots to cellphones that only need charging once a month, Schulich researchers are developing better devices, structures and systems that will help humanity.

Our researchers are improving our manufacturing and project management processes, tackling transportation challenges, creating better biometrics and developing high performance buildings.  That work plus much else will help guide cities and societies around the world.

Smart Cities

For the first time in human history, more than half the world’s population lives in cities making the efficient design and use of urban resources a pressing need.  Researchers are developing components for more energy efficient buildings, monitoring the integrity of structures and designing better communication and transportation networks.

Civil Engineering

Alex de Barros, Tom Brown, Lynn Cowe Falls, Robert Day, Mamdouh El-Badry, Raafat El-Hacha, John Hunt, Lina Kattan, Shelley Lissel, Marc Maes, Nigel Shrive, S.C. Wirasinghe

Electrical and Computer Engineering

Abraham Fapojuwo, Behrouz Far, Fadhel Ghannouchi, Mohamed Helaoui, Mike Smith

Geomatics Engineering

Michael Barry, Ayman Habib, Andrew Hunter, Derek Lichti, Bill Teskey, Ruisheng Wang

Secure Societies

Biometric research is exploring how to use human’s physiological characteristics, including retina patterns and thermal image of the body, as well as behavioral characteristics such as voice, signature or gait for security systems. Geomatics research is improving techniques to collect, store and manage data about the Earth's surface — information that’s used for social, industrial, environmental and other purposes.
