Georgia Tech is breaking ground on the High Performance Computing Center (HPCC) in Technology Square. HPCC will be a diverse space, combining traditional office spaces and retail locations, with collaborative work areas and a computing center. A data center as part of an urban eco-system, HPCC will take advantage of its location in Midtown Atlanta, a walkable, technology and science focused neighborhood, to integrate sustainability and technology.
The App Lab is a “hackerspace” devoted to the creation of mobile applications and technologies across a range of platforms. It is equipped with the software and hardware necessary for mobile app development. The App Lab is available for club meetings and classes and hosts tutorials run by both the RNOC and by its outside partners.
RNOC maintains a diverse collection of hardware, software, services and other resources to support research and academic projects for the Georgia Tech community. A variety of sensors, mobile and wearable devices, hosted services, and development resources are available for short term check outs for class projects and for long term check out for research projects. For more information stop by the RNOC Lab or email RNOC Lab Staff.
VAPOR is a Federated Research hybrid cloud project led by academic units at the university in partnership with central IT. The data storage layer of the cloud supports research data storage, research data curation, “Dropbox” type solution, a filesystem gateway, and research data repositories.
The Internet of Things (IoT) will soon touch nearly all of the interactions we have with our world and with the things around us, and the interaction of those things with each other. GT-RNOC is developing a number of IoT-related projects that help students demonstrate and better understand some of the complexity and range of applications that the IoT encompasses. We invite students and faculty alike to bring their fun or serious project ideas or to join in the development of one of our existing projects. Our hardware includes Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and ESP8266, combined with a wide variety of sensors, communicating over WiFi, Bluetooth, RFID, and others. Development opportunities exist in hardware hacking, mobile apps, back-end, wireless networking, system architecture, software/system security, and more. GT-RNOC is also currently working with GT Professional Education to develop course offerings in the topic and sub-topics of IoT, with class offerings expected to begin in 2016. We welcome other faculty and researchers who are interested in collaborating on these efforts to share the stories of their work in this arena.
A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. GT-RNOC's GIS is specifically designed with research and development in mind: Using ESRI's ArcGIS Server packages, inter-departmental ArcGIS development environments and a single campus production environment.
The Direct-to-Discovery (D2D) program at Georgia Tech brings world-class researchers and their laboratories into K-12 classrooms. D2D enables teachers and researchers to collaborate in providing rich, up-to-date science content that inspires, motivates, and empowers experiential learning. The D2D program features three essential components: the underlying network infrastructure, the enabling technologies, and a collaborative professional development framework. Combining real-time, high definition videoconferencing and direct access to the high-speed global research and education network infrastructure with curriculum development expertise provides K-12 students with a unique, immersive learning experience.
RNOC works in partnership with IPaT researchers and the Georgia Tech I3L to support platforms and services for use by student researchers in the Health IT interoperability, M-Health, and healthcare analytics areas.
RNOC works closely with the Georgia Tech Wireless team to test and deploy innovative new wireless technologies which will perform at scale and offer agile and accessible network access to the research community. Check back soon for details...
