Since Taiwan is gradually entering an aging society, long-term care become more and more important. Taipei Tech gathered professors in related fields to form a long-term care research team. The research team also cooperates with many medical institutions such as Tri-Service General Hospital Beitou Branch, MacKay Memorial Hospital, Taipei Venteran General Hospital Su-Ao & Yanshan Branch, National Taipei University of Nursing and Health Science, and so on. On Oct 30, a joint press conference was held at Taipei Tech that focused on releasing the latest long-term care R&D result. A total of 25 items in 4 different fields, i.e. Neurological Rehabilitation, Remote Monitoring and Sensor, and IOT and Modular Long-term Care.
Taipei Tech research team from the Institute of Environmental Engineering and Management conducted a study of comparison the effectivity between 11 different air purifiers and deodorizer. The result showed that activated carbon-zeolite filter performs best in keeping nitrogen oxide which is a common indoor air pollutant away among its competitors. This research was presented on Taiwan Public Health Association Annual Academic Conference for the first time.
The first autopilot plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) developed by MIT Media Lab was displayed at the 2016 Microsoft IoT Expo on Oct 17. In the future, people can expect to use APP to reserve one of these eco-friendly vehicles at a nearby spot to travel in the city. To increase convince, passengers can even use smart card for current Metro system to pay for car rental rate.
Taipei Tech and Tzu Chi Foundation joint hands to develop useful device for disaster rescue. A presentation was hold at Taipei Tech on 3 June, 2015. Some of the deviceswere already been used and received great resultwhen anair blast happened in Kaohsiungin July 2014.
On July 8, NVIDIA hosted the annual GPU Technology Workshop in Taiwan and attracted over 600 government officials and industry and academic leaders. During the workshop, NVIDIA announced that the company will collaborate with Taipei Tech to establish the Embedded GPU (graphics processing unit) Joint Lab (NVIDIA-Taipei Tech Joint Lab), and donated a Jetson TK1 development kit to Taipei Tech. In addition to preparing students to become experts in GPU technology, this project is also committed to develop embedded GPU technology in other fields and provide solutions for business partners using this technology, such as applying parallel computing technology to automobiles, robotics, and other large mobile devices. Taipei Tech alumni are successful leaders in Taiwan's IT industry. NVIDIA and Taipei Tech plan to leverage expertise and resources to play a significant role in the robotic supply chain.
Since its establishment in 1912, Taipei Tech (National Taipei University of Technology) has long placed equal emphasis on academic research and hands-on practice. In recent years, with close and solid industry-university collaborations, Taipei Tech has dedicated a considerable amount of effort in nurturing great minds with innovative ideas in the field of applied medical technology. The initiation of the Doctorate of Medicine and of Philosophy (MD-PhD) is a case in point.
Professor Hai-Han Lu of Electro-Optical Engineering and his research team at Taipei Tech (National Taipei University of Technology) spent 2 years developing an ultra-high speed visible light wireless network that is 1,000 times faster than 4G. With this new technology, downloading a full length film will take less than a second.
The average age in Taiwan is rapidly rising. The good news is that Taipei Tech students are making contributions in creating better lives for the elderly. Two groups of students from Taipei Tech won the Red Dot Design Award this year. One is the "Unbent" trolley, which also won the Red Dot "Best of the Best" prize, and the other is the "Easy Button."
The Department of Civil Engineering in Taipei Tech has had a 100-year history since Taipei Tech was established in 1912. In 1997, the Civil Engineering Department of Taipei Tech became the first university department in Taiwan to establish a graduate program in civil and disaster prevention engineering – the Graduate Institute of Civil and Disaster Prevention. “Our greatest turning point”, said Department Chair of Civil Engineering, Professor Shong-Loong Chen (陳水龍), “is when our university became a research university.” In 2012, the Department of Civil Engineering was ranked 117 worldwide by the QS World University Rankings by subject.
"Help Taiwan’s car industry come up with the next step!" said Professor K. David Huang (黃國修), Department of Vehicle Engineering Chair at Taipei Tech. Originally a part of the Mechanical Engineering Department, the Department of Vehicle Engineering was set up as an independent department in 1997. Esteemed faculty members provide interdisciplinary education, with emphasis on hands on experience to prepare students for a career in research or the job market. Following the megatrend of the car industry of producing intelligent, clean, and safe vehicles, the department shifted its focus from repair and maintenance to research on the frontiers of vehicle engineering.
