NSF Engineering Research Centers: ASSIST and FREEDM
In its first five years, ASSIST focused on building the platforms for wearable health monitoring systems and the sensors that would drive them. As those platforms have matured and the center moves into its sixth year of National Science Foundation (NSF) funding, ASSIST’s focus is transitioning to placing its technologies into clinical trials. Now in its ninth year, FREEDM hopes to demonstrate both the system it has worked to create — an improved electric grid that can handle bidirectional energy flow and integrate larger percentages of renewable energy sources — and the pieces that make it work.
