Relief from 'parking wars': Computer software to revamp city parking

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (Oct. 31, 2011) — For those who live or work in cities, parking is a major source of stress and frustration. Researchers estimate that for every 110 vehicles circulating on the roads looking for spaces, there are 100 available spots, both in lots and on the street.

Now Nadav Levy, a Ph.D. student at Tel Aviv University's Porter School of Environmental Science, along with his supervisors Prof. Itzhak Benenson of the Department of...

Researchers improving GPS accuracy in the 3rd dimension

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (Aug. 17, 2011) — Researchers who are working to fix global positioning system (GPS) errors have devised software to take a more accurate measurement of altitude -- particularly in mountainous areas.

The software is still under development, but in initial tests it enabled centimeter-scale GPS positioning -- including altitude -- as often as 97 percent of the time.

Researchers hope the software will help to improve the vertical...

Software helps synthetic biologists customize protein production

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (July 22, 2011) — A software program developed by a Penn State synthetic biologist could provide biotechnology companies with genetic plans to help them turn bacteria into molecular factories, capable of producing everything from biofuels to medicine.

"It's similar to how an engineer designs a plane or a car," said Howard M. Salis, assistant professor in agricultural and biological engineering, and chemical engineering. "When...

LiquidText software supports active reading through fingertip manipulation of text

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (July 12, 2011) — Many reading tasks require individuals to not only read a document, but also to understand, learn from and retain the information in it. For this type of reading, experts recommend a process called active reading, which involves highlighting, outlining and taking notes on the text.

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed software that facilitates an innovative approach to active reading....
