specifically targeting younger middle school studentts...Quanser had already created it and the device was ideal."
Dr Anthony Ingraffea, Professor at the Cornell School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Cornell University
This 4-page [Quanser] article looks at how universities can achieve a big reputation, produce smarter graduates and make vast savings by opting for multi-discipline control laboratories.
Securing project funding opened new possibilities for Dr O'Malley's robotic rehabilitation research [using Quanser].
Read how Cornell professor Anthony Ingraffea "shook up" his students and got them excited about pursuing careers in civil engineering using a Quanser Shake Table to bring earthquake science to life and provide hands-on experience. As a result, Dr. Anthony Ingraffea's class gained a deeper understanding of structural dynamics and ...
In order to help researchers develop new algorithms for controlling UAVs under a variety of different conditions, Quanser Inc developed the QBall-X4, a UAV experiment platform for research in UAV control and design using the power of MapleSim.
Research scientists, software developers, and control systems engineers designed a Rehabilitation Robot [using Quanser] to help stroke victims regain upper limb strength.
took the interactive tutorial available online from Quanser and used QUARC successfully to do rapid prototyping of the experiment."

and discovered that those who used Quanser's Haptic Wand were extremely pleased with their equipment."
Dr Daniela Constantinescu, University of Victoria, British Columbia
University of Central Florida (UCF) uses Quanser to add intelligence to a robotic arm to help paraplegics perform everyday tasks.
Learn how Quanser and the University of Victoria resulted in a far-reaching rehabilitation project designed to help solve a growing real world problem: how to ensure out-patient rehabilitation clients continue to perform their regular rehab program once they've returned home.
Quanser and McMaster University co-invent a unique lab for an undergraduate program that combines seemingly disparate studies: Electrical and Biomedical Engineering.
is ideal for teaching purposes as it [Quanser Shake Table] is easy to use, accessible, portable and it has simple software operation, helping a large number of students to understand and complete projects in a relatively short time."
Dr Mihaela Anca Ciupala, University of East London
Find out how a Quanser Shake Table, supplied by Adept Scientific, is helping academics at the University of East London to communicate those concepts and to demonstrate the dynamic and seismic responses of structures, without the need for building large-scale prototypes.

Students of automation technology at Tsinghua University in China are discovering that practical hands-on experience beats hours of theory. They have recently used commercially available real-time control software [Quanser] in a contest to see who could design the best controller to balance a mechanical system.
Dr. Jacob Apkarian, Quanser's CTO looks at the future of engineering and shares a strategy for universities to optimise engineering programs to captivate a new generation of students. This article looks at the benefits multidisciplinary control laboratories can achieve, such as superior reputation for the university, finer graduates, efficient use ...
Tsinghua University, China needed to give students a tool they could easily use to design and deploy their controllers. Learn how QUARC software helped the University’s Automation Department hold an Automatic Control Design competition for its undergraduate engineering students. The students were delighted with QUARC because it saved them time ...
Discover how students at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences are using Quanser's 5 DOF Open Architecture Robot to quickly learn control and robotics concepts, and implement the theory. Hands-on courses that feature practical experiments help to motivate students and draw more undergraduates to Harvard’s Engineering Program.
