Two $30,000 Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering Grants Awarded

Two Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering Grants of $30,000 each have been awarded to attendees of the National Academy of Engineering's 2016 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium.

Amin Karbasi (Yale University) and Amit Surana (United Technologies Research Center) have received a Grainger Grant to "develop a unified approach for saliency detection in heterogeneous temporal data." The second Grainger Grant has been awarded to Marco Pavone (Stanford University) and Julian Rimoli (Georgia Institute of Technology) for research of "the development of tensegrity damping strategies for the exploration of low-gravity planetary bodies, e.g., asteroids and small moons."
