UT Arlington In The News

Innovation Nation

Monday, September 29, 2014

The CBS News series Innovation Nation featured UT Arlington’s Smitha Rao, a research associate, and J.-C. Chiao, electrical engineering professor, and their micro-windmill innovation. The team designed a micro-windmill that generates wind energy that could be used for sensors and lights for roads and bridges, and may become a solution to cell phone batteries constantly in need of recharging. Host Mo Rocca called the UT Arlington work “the future of the windmill, sleek, high-tech and able to fit on a grain of rice.”
