The Bicycle Infrastructure and Improvement Committee (BIIC) was formed in late 2010 by SGA, to bring together graduate and undergraduate students with staff members of the Georgia Tech offices of Capital Planning and Space Management, Parking and Transportation, Facilities, and GTPD. Together they are tasked with improving bicycle infrastructure on campus through the evaluation of existing facilities, the creation of events and programs, securing funding for facility improvements, and other related endeavors. They represent a commitment of students and staff to sustainability, mobility, safety, healthy living, and a choice of travel modes.

Combining new classes of nanomembrane electrodes with flexible electronics and a deep learning algorithm could help disabled people wirelessly control an electric wheelchair, interact with a computer or operate a small robotic vehicle without donning a bulky hair-electrode cap or contending with wires.
Millions of heart failure patients are readmitted to hospital every few months to adjust medications. It sends medical costs sky-high, and patients suffer needlessly. A new bathroom scale could give clinicians health data they need to preempt hospitalizations and treat patients remotely, easing patient suffering.
Suturing Device, Helicopter Hoist Stabilizer Make it to Finals of National Collegiate Inventors Competition
One invention keeps patients safe during emergency airlifts. The other simplifies prostate-removal surgery.
Building conventional robots typically requires carefully combining components like motors, batteries, actuators, body segments, legs and wheels. Now, researchers have taken a new approach, building a robot entirely from smaller robots known as “smarticles” to unlock the principles of a potentially new locomotion technique.
