EWH with their certified Laminar Flow
EWH Laminar Flow Hood – Certified!
The hard working Engineering World Health team was able to push through and achieve official Performance Certification for Laminar Airflow Equipment from LabMetrics, Inc.!The device they've built meets the same performance specifications as commercial hoods used in pharmacies, laboratories, and hospitals.  We leave Friday for Nhi Dong 1 Women and Children's Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam with the goal of gaining device acceptance at the hospital and building additional units in the future.  Congratulations to these hard-working students, and also for going far above and beyond to support this projects, a special thank you to Eric Schmidt and Ed Paligreeni.  More info on EWH-UIC Bioengineering trip to Vietnam.EWH UIC main society page.

Artificial Intelligence Lab
AI Lab Receives $5.85M from IDOT to Help Reduce Traffic
With $7.2 billion in wasted gasoline, time, and pollution due to traffic congestion, Chicago is the third worst urban area in the country according to the Texas Institute of Transportation. A $5,853,740 contract to UIC researchers in the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory will help to address the problem. The UIC Artificial Intelligence Laboratory developed the Gateway Transportation Information System (GTIS) in the early 1990s to help reduce congestion in Chicago and around the Midwest. GTIS is a system that collects, analyzes, and combines sensor data and anecdotal information from 24 transportation operating agencies and gives drivers real-time traffic information through its website TravelMidwest.com and mobile app Travel Midwest.Since its inception, GTIS has grown to provide real-time traffic information coverage for Illinois, Indiana,…
