Paddling toward a more accessible future

It was Andrew Skvarla’s huge day. An achieved athlete, he had been paddling kayaks and also canoes given that he was 16 years old, as well as he had never ever allow anything enter his means– not also his total visual loss. Yet this stormy October early morning was various. On the uneven waters of the Upper Newport Bay, he raced in a remote-controlled outrigger canoe by himself for the very first time.

The steering system innovation permitting Skvarla to carry out his solo feat was created and created by Mark Baldwin, an informatics Ph.D. student at UCI, and it’s enabling members of the Makapo Aquatics Job– like Skvarla– to experience rowing in new and also interesting ways.

A previous software professional for ten years prior to reaching UCI, Baldwin utilizes hands-on, prototype-driven methods to perform research study on assistive modern technology. His goal is to develop gadgets to assist individuals with disabilities, especially those with aesthetic impairments.

“The guiding system, much like Andrew, performed well,” says RJ De Rama, executive director of the Makapo Aquatics Job. “When he crossed the surface line, there wasn’t an individual around who really did not have a big smile on their face. We were so fed that it went so well which we assisted Andrew become the very first completely blind individual to complete a race on a remote-controlled canoe.”

Baldwin partnered with the Makapo Aquatics Project which lays out to aid visually impaired people come to be a lot more active and also independent. With each other, they’ve been evaluating as well as surpassing a remote device for outrigger canoes so that the family members or friends can steer them from an additional watercraft, comparable to exactly how you manage a remote control automobile.

“I think the most unforgettable minute for me until now has actually been the motivation as well as excitement of the paddling community,” states Baldwin. “At the starting line, when the race supervisor introduced our project as well as Andrew, every person there was enthusiastically applauding. As well as even throughout the race, we had many paddlers that cheered Andrew on.”

Making an obtainable substantial desktop computer

Structure such models for his research study undertakings has actually distinguished Baldwin in his doctoral mission. In this respect, he shares a similar approach to his consultant, Gillian Hayes, the Robert A. & & Barbara L. Kleist Chair in Informatics at UCI, who also explores the real-world effect of her research tasks.

As part of his Ph.D. project, Baldwin has actually been working to create a concrete desktop computer that facilitates computer usage for the aesthetically impaired. He’s concentrating on creating desktop prototypes that are financially affordable to make sure that they can be utilized by a wider audience, not simply those who can pay $3,000-$10,000 for existing software application or braille displays on their key-boards. He makes use of low-priced modern technology, like 3D printing, to create his models and products.

Baldwin’s motivation is to see exactly how his research study and developments can have a long lasting, life-long effect on the areas that have been ignored as well as underserved by a technology-driven world that often breakthroughs without them in mind. He confesses this has provided his study initiatives a higher feeling of function– it’s not only concerning producing technical advancements, however about progressing technology for all, consisting of those with handicaps.

“The impairment community is frequently ignored in our society, so I assume the financial investment in our success by the paddling community, as well as others, is a testimony to the value of developing as well as developing assistive technology in diverse joint atmospheres,” he says. “We discovered from the community just how to obtain Andrew on the water as well as the community found out that Andrew, and any other blind paddler, belongs there.”

UCI awarded $5.4 million grant to prepare Compton students for college access and success

Irvine, Calif., Nov. 15, 2018 — The University of California, Irvine has been awarded a $5.4 million Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs partnership grant from the U.S. Department of Education to prepare middle school students for college access and success. The seven-year GEAR UP project will provide multiple academic activities and services for sixth- and seventh-graders in the Compton Unified School District that continue through high school and their freshman year in college.

“We are thrilled to implement this comprehensive program that increases opportunities for students from underserved communities and that provides them and their families with the tools and information to plan for, enter and complete a postsecondary education,” said principal investigator Stephanie Reyes-Tuccio, UCI assistant vice chancellor for educational partnerships. “UCI has repeatedly been named the No. 1 university in The New York Times College Access Index for doing the most for the American dream, and through this grant, we can help GEAR UP students realize theirs.”

The project will serve 1,000 students from Davis, Bunche, Enterprise and Willowbrook middle schools as they progress into Compton or Centennial high school and on to the colleges of their choice. It will promote science, technology, engineering and math education through increased access to Advanced Placement and dual enrollment classes; provide academic tutoring, counseling and workshops; offer teachers, counselors and staff professional development and enrichment activities; and increase students’ and their families’ knowledge of postsecondary education options and financial aid.

UCI will collaborate with a variety of community groups – including the Compton Unified School District, Compton College, the city of Compton, the Verizon Foundation and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – to provide support and services.

“We appreciate the commitment of our partners in joining with us to extend educational opportunities that will help underserved communities succeed in the classroom and beyond,” Reyes-Tuccio said. “Earning a college degree not only benefits students and their families, but also helps strengthen the region by establishing a qualified workforce that can meet the needs of business and industry for years to come.”

Huolin Xin is awarded $2.5 million grant to research next-generation lithium-ion batteries

Huolin Xin, UCI aide professor of & physics & astronomy, has been awarded $2.5 million by the UNITED STATE Division of Energy to advance research in next-generation lithium-ion batteries. His job is among 42 sustained by an $80 million fund for promising vehicle modern technologies to enable even more economical wheelchair, reinforce residential power safety, decrease our dependancy on international resources of critical products as well as boost U.S. financial growth. Cobalt, which supplies stability in lithium-ion batteries, has actually virtually tripled

An assistant professor of physics & & astronomy, Huolin Xin joined UCI’s faculty previously this year.

in price over the previous numerous years, motivating many researches focused on the decrease or elimination of it in power cells. The initiatives of the UCI-led team will certainly focus on establishing a three-dimensional doping approach in high-nickel, low-cobalt products– with the best objective of reducing expenses and also boosting the safety and security, power thickness and long life of mobile energy storage space. Xin, that signed up with UCI’s professors previously this year, was previously a personnel scientist as well as principal detective at Brookhaven National Lab in New York City. He is a professional in the application of artificial intelligence-driven transmission electron microscopy and also modern 3-D chemical imaging in the research of batteries, gas cells and also gas decrease electrocatalysts. “To aid deal with future environment adjustment, a greater portion of the international vehicle fleet will require to be based on electrical versus inner combustion electric motors, and our power market will certainly need to rely more heavily on battery storage space,” Xin said. “As the world is encountering a critical demand for much better products and also modern technologies, the purpose of this DOE-funded task is to meet that need with development.”
