Imprint Energy Collider- Emerging Battery Technology
Tue, February 23, 2016, 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM PST
Join this project if you are interested in exploring exciting advances in battery technology!
Imprint is offering $8K in prizes as well as opportunities for internships.
Students interested in cutting edge materials science, chemistry, electrical and mechanical engineering should attend. This is a great opportunity to get hands-on experience in the field of battery science as it pertains to wearables and IoT devices.
The Challenge: Students working on this project will characterize the power, form factor, and integration requirements of emerging wearable and Internet of Things applications, and will highlight the unique challenges for batteries powering these devices. From these requirements, clear metrics and methods of testing batteries will be established with the ultimate goal of clarifying how to most efficiently compare different batteries that are positioned to address these new applications, and to help guide battery designers to better communicate relevant and useful technology information and data. This project aims to help wearable and IoT product designers speak the same language as novel battery designers, and vice versa.
Who should apply/attend: Graduate students and researchers in the field of battery technology. Also, undergraduates with demonstrated experience and expertise may team up with graduate students for this challenge. Graduate students may register for IEOR 298 (CCN 41177) , undergrads IEOR 190c (CCN 41264)
