Background

The effects of motion sickness (MOS) on military health, risk, performance and operational effectiveness were explored during a unique two-year multi-disciplinary research investigation between three universities, two industry partners, and NAMRU-D. This study enrolled 28 volunteers from a military population and assessed the effects of pre- and post-MS exposure. A wide variety of measures were utilized to quantify these effects including low back function (via cLMM), spinal loading, postural stability, gait function, genotypes and...

C2PNT Intelligent Channel Sensing

About project

Innovation

In this project, a series of intelligent channel sensing algorithms have been developed to intelligently detect, identify and sense the radio frequency spectrum environment of air communication and space communication networks. Additionally, based upon these intelligent channel sensing algorithms, a cross-layer cognitive communication engine has been developed to enhance the performance of air and space communication networks. Taking advantage of machine learning and signal processing techniques, the security of...

Background

The Advanced Cognitive and Physical Sweat Biosensing project funded by the OFRN sought to make Ohio the leader of sweat biosensing through academic partnerships and industry and federal partners. The University of Cincinnati developed and tested new technology in sweat devices. The University of Toledo developed new sensors for glucose, urea, and ethanol.  The Ohio State University. was directed to look into new analytes in sweat. Eccrine Systems led the commercialization efforts of the new developments.   ...

Human Centered Big Data

About project

Innovation

The Human Centered Big Data project produced new methods for understanding, visualizing and explaining the reasoning process of “black box” AI algorithms, resulting in more trustworthy and interpretable algorithms. Along the way, we developed novel approaches for a number of AI-assisted tasks including image interpretation, image search, context-aware text search. Results of the project included new algorithms for quickly searching through large image databases, methods for inferring how neural...
