Harvey Mudd College encourages a collaborative problem-solving approach that lets students harness the power of collective skill and experience. Harvey Mudd students put this power to good use at the recent 5-C Hackathon, an all-night programming competition that challenges students to design a useful Internet application. Harvey Mudd fielded winning teams—both made up of first […]

Students to Present Research on Human-Robot Teaming

November 24, 2014

Robustness in Probabilistic Temporal Planning

Who hasn’t had their cell phone ring at an awkward moment? Researchers at Harvey Mudd want to develop technology that intuitively adapts to the natural rhythms of our lives, so they are experimenting with new techniques for human‐robot teaming. The work is being done in computer science Professor James Boerkoel’s HEATlab (Human Experience and Agent Teamwork […]

Dancing Is Serious Business for Honey Bee, Say Researchers

Honey bees are in trouble. They face threats from all sides: disease, parasites, pesticides and loss of habitat. Exacerbating these problems is poor nutrition. To achieve a healthy diet, honey bees use the “waggle dance” to communicate with their nest mates about where to find the tastiest, most nutritious flowers. Dancing is an essential means […]

Seeing Through the Smog

Prof Lelia Hawkins and student working in lab

Student researchers in Professor Lelia Hawkins’ lab tackle tough atmospheric chemistry questions, exploring how air pollution impacts climate change. They collect smog particles from a rooftop sampling inlet and measure organic carbon and optical properties. They also generate mimics for smog particles to determine how light and oxidants impact those same properties as particles pass […]
