Examples of Work

ARS developed an integrated software and hardware solution for interfacing animal behavioral training systems with MATLAB and Arduino microcontrollers for Psychology.
LSA IT Infrastructure, LSA IT ARS, Chemistry, and Biophysics worked together on the development of a standardized NMR billing mechanism. In the longer term, this can be evolved into a simple, uniform chargeback system adaptable to research devices across LSA.
ARS facilitated interactions between OSEH, Michigan Creative, and Chemistry to update lab hazard signage in their department to use the Globally Harmonized icons.
In collaboration with the Statistics department, LSA IT is deploying an advanced visualization workstation to provide researchers college-wide with tools for exploring and manipulating large datasets.
ARS provides expertise in and demo equipment for faculty evaluating IT solutions for field work, whether that is conducting door-to-door surveys or gathering scientific data atop a mountain.
