Advancing Sustainability Using ICT

The environmental issues we now face are believed to be the result of our social systems. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has the potential to help us better understand, monitor in read-time, and reduce our impact on the environment. AITIS Lab, in the Department of Engineering Science, is committed to utilize the engineering expertise and research activity of its faculty to initiate innovative and sustainable graduate and undergraduate projects to educate future environmentally responsible and skilled engineers. We work with local industries and organizations to provide sustainable engineering solutions. Click here to learn more about our research activities and ongoing projects .....more; / Main Page.

Treatment Evaluation of Parkinson Disease

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system, which significantly deteriorates the quality of life especially in the elderly. Today, in the United States alone almost a million individuals have been diagnosed with the disease, making PD an increasingly medical concern. Sadly, as of today, there is no cure for PD. Furthermore, commonly practiced methods are mainly qualitative (not quantitative) and thus fail to evaluate the progress of the disease and it attributes. 
Our goal in this project is to begin a proof-of-concept implementation of highly specialized platform that performs data management, analytics and visualization. The overall aim of this project is better understanding PD.

Status: Expected to be completed by May 2017 (ongoing)
