Resolve Magazine: Volume 1, 2008

Driving Innovation

Welcome to the Spring 2008 issue of Resolve—a magazine dedicated to research and educational innovation in the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science at Lehigh University.

In this current issue of Resolve magazine, we feature rich stories that will give you a sense of the research being conducted across the sectors of Bio, Nano, and Systems Engineering. For example, we review the success of “Little Ben,” a Toyota Prius converted into a driverless robotic car by engineers from Penn, Lehigh and Lockheed Martin to compete in the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge in California. Little Ben overcame incredible odds to become one of just six vehicles to navigate and drive itself through the entire 60-mile course.

Message in a bottle

For years, engineers have relied on physicist Daniel Ou-Yang’s pioneering work with a laser technique called “optical tweezers” to explore the complexity of cellular biomechanics. Now, he’s developing a new technique that promises to shed light on the particle-to-particle interactions that underlie a host of engineering applications.
