UC Davis researchers go into rattlesnake country to study the interaction between snakes and squirrels. The snakes are real, but the squirrel is a robot.
UC Riverside students came up with a solar-powered system that can nix clothes dryers and save homeowners money. They’ve won a $90,000 grant to help commercialize the system.
UC Berkeley researchers have developed a method using GPS-enabled smartphones to learn about the quality, volume, speed and direction of the flow of water through the Sacramento Delta.
Scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are working with a Norwegian company, named SWAY, to leverage offshore wind as a possible and valuable energy source.
Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have developed a nanocrystal material that could add a critical energy-saving dimension to “smart window” coatings.
A new UC Berkeley research center is re-inventing the country’s urban water infrastructure, which is worn from age, population growth and the effects of climate change.
UC Berkeley scientists, in collaboration with the national labs, have devised a nanoscale testing technique that could be invaluable in making sure nuclear facilities and the materials inside them are safe for years to come.
In the place some call the Bicycle Capital of the U.S., UC Davis researchers study bike dynamics, handling and control. The knowledge could lead to better designed bikes; different spokes for different folks
UCSF and UC Berkeley grads are developing an implant that will deliver precise doses of lifesaving drugs directly into the bloodstream.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory scientists invented “ultraclean low swirl combustion.” Their commercialized burners are cheaper than the traditional kind and they don’t cause pollution.
Scientists at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory use light to convert carbon in tobacco leaves into biofuels.
UC Berkeley scientists, who study motion, looked at how lizards use their tails. Their findings can help design robots that can be used in search, rescue or disaster situations.
UC Berkeley scientists use brain imaging and computer simulation to decode and reconstruct dynamic visual experiences.
UC Berkeley researchers, who are experts in earthquakes, are playing a key role in the renovation of campus’ Memorial Stadium, which straddles the Hayward Fault.
Instead of producing movie blockbusters, UC Merced researchers are creating more realistic human motions for lifelike virtual characters. They can be viewed and used in a variety of ways, including learning tasks.
UC San Diego students are in Houston, on a NASA plane, this week to investigate what happens in the heads of astronauts during weightlessness. They are part of NASA's Microgravity University, which offers selected students a rare chance to do research in near-zero gravity.
A UC Discovery Grant created a partnership between UC researchers and a Woodland startup, which is converting wastes into biofuels.
