Backed by a five-year, $18.8 million grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Technology Innovation Program (TIP) ($9.0M from NIST, $9.8M Cost Share), the VOTERS team includes more than 40 faculty, research scientists, engineers, and graduate students from the fields of electrical, computer, and civil engineering.
Joining Northeastern University, the lead research institution, as project partners are the University of Massachusetts Lowell, the University of Vermont, Trilion Quality Systems, Inc. and Earth Science Systems.
Other contributing members include Infrasense, Inc., DB Consulting, and the Massachusetts Highway Department.
JOIN THE TEAM!!
Do you want a job where you can work on innovative new technologies with real world application, while working alongside some of the greatest minds in the field of engineering? Then the VOTERS project might be the perfect place for you!
The VOTERS project is currently working on pioneering sensor technology that will change the way America looks at its roads. We have been featured in many publications, including Popular Science Magazine. Our venture takes engineering out of the classroom and into the real world. Our staff includes leaders in the world of civil engineering and ground-breaking professors from the Northeastern family! We are located right on campus and have partners across the Northeast.
The VOTERS project is looking for inventive and dedicated graduate students from the College of Engineering to join our team.
In particular, we're looking for students with experience or strong interest in the following areas:
- Technical data mining and knowledge discovery
- Data processing, fusion, reduction, analysis, and visualization
- Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and geospatial databases
- Numerical electromagnetic simulations of Ground Penetrating Radar system data over civil infrastructure models
So if you think you would like to be a part of this exciting project, send us your resume.
We look forward to hearing from you!
