07/01/2013 - 19:00 The Global Positioning System (GPS) does more than get you from point A to point B. It also serves as the backbone of many critical systems, ranging from the power grid to the stock market, that are essential to daily living and economic prosperity. CSL’s newest researcher, Grace Xingxin Gao, is helping to develop a secure and reliable framework for such capabilities.

06/06/2013 - 19:00 Twenty years ago, most people didn’t own a cell phone, let alone a phone that could connect to the Internet, take photos or memorize voice recordings. The computer chips in these old phones, or other devices such as appliances, cars or even power plants, weren’t attractive targets to cyber intruders; however, as these devices have advanced, they have become a prime target for malicious attacks.
06/02/2013 - 19:00 CSL graduate student Navid Aghasadeghi's work to develop the backbone of a computerized lower-limb prostheses that allows amputees to walk with a natural gait was featured in an orthopedic and prosthetic device trade publication, The O&P Edge.
05/27/2013 - 19:00 CSL has long provided fertile ground for multidisciplinary initiatives to take root. So when the College of Engineering announced its support of six new interdisciplinary research projects through its Strategic Research Initiatives program last year, it makes sense that CSL would play an integral role.
05/21/2013 - 19:00 According to the Amputee Coalition of America, there are approximately 1.7 million people in the United States living with limb loss and over 1 million lower-limb amputees. The number of lower-limb amputees is expected to double by 2050, especially due to the increasing prevalence of diabetes. Complications of diabetes can cause poor circulation and nerve damage, leading to amputation.
