Joining BC’s Electric Vehicle Cloud: ECE’s Kaiser building powers transportation of UBC’s fleet

Joining BC’s Electric Vehicle Cloud: ECE’s Kaiser building powers transportation of UBC’s fleet

Music, pictures and video are common uses for cloud storage. Now the province of BC is adapting the cloud paradigm to collect the data of over 450 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. With statistics on when, where and for how long EVs are charging, decision makers with the province and at BC Hydro can better […]

Changing the Grid

For over one hundred years, the electric grid has been supplying power to critical infrastructure, but the existing grid is becoming obsolete. The systems put in place over a century ago were not designed for today’s needs; our energy consumption increases while, at the same time, the world’s population grows. It is crucial to improve […]

Beyer and Mohamed win Microsystem Design Award for 3D bioprinting to enhance drug testing

Beyer and Mohamed win Microsystem Design Award for 3D bioprinting to enhance drug testing

Today it takes an average of $5 billion and 10-15 years to develop a drug. One of the primary reasons for the high cost and time spent is the poor predictive accuracy of the front end drug discovery process. Conventional drug development and testing methods rely on the use of 2D cell cultures and animal […]

New technology can prevent cellular overload, dropped calls

New technology can prevent cellular overload, dropped calls

New research finds a way to opportunistically use television and radio channels to transmit cellular signals when systems are pushed beyond capacity. When a natural disaster strikes and too many people take to their mobile phones at once, cellular networks easily overload. But a University of British Columbia graduate student has developed a solution to […]
