People obeyed stay-at-home orders, CDC cellphone data shows

Stay-at-home orders issued across the United States in the spring appeared to work at keeping people home, new cellphone data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows. The researchers, from the CDC and the Georgia Tech Research Institute, examined those orders and analyzed anonymous location data from mobile devices.

Robotics and Automation: Back to the future

For years, Atlanta-based Georgia Tech Research Institute’s (GTRI) researchers have experimented with creating robots that can take care of poultry flocks, so human workers don’t contaminate or introduce disease to commercial poultry houses...Now, GTRI is testing robots’ ability to pick up eggs and mortality from the floor.

Repurposing Wastewater

The Georgia Tech Research Insititute, for example, continues to experiment with a Dynamic Filtration System that stops particles before the filter and removes them in a smaller footprint.


Labor shortages impacting the poultry supply chain

Ai-Ping Hu, Ph.D., senior research engineer, Georgia Tech Research Institute, will discuss intelligent automation of bird deboning at the Poultry Tech Summit. Hu says that deboning can conceptualized into three parts: characterizing the non-uniform bird product (using 3D image processing), predicting anatomical structure (i.e., the shoulder joint), and obtaining an optimal cutting path (for the robot to execute to extract the most yield from the bird carcass). 


Using real-time data to enable better decisions

The Poultry Tech Summit is presented by WATT Global Media in collaboration with the Georgia Tech Research Institute, USPOULTRY, and the University of Georgia with support from the World’s Poultry Science Association. The event will be held November 20-22 at the Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference Center. Registration is now open.

Defense acquisition the focus of upcoming tri-service open architecture demo

The Tri-Service Open Architecture Interoperability Demonstration – a new, exclusive event for the media, acquisition community, and industry influencers – will be held on January 29, 2020, hosted by the Georgia Tech Research Institute at the GTRI Conference Center in Atlanta, Georgia.


Engaging Innovation In Times Of Constant Change With GTRI & IEEE TEMS

In June, the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) hosted a three-part IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society (IEEE TEMS) conference (IEEE TEMSCON), “Leading Innovation in Times of Constant Change. For the first time, the conference broke new ground by combining academic research on day one, industry forum on day two, and a combined sharing of academy and industry on day three.
