Adaptive Cruise Control Vehicles Create Phantom Traffic Jams in Road Test

Vanderbilt University

Work and his collaborators tested seven different cars from two manufacturers on a remote, rural roadway in Arizona. They simulated various driving conditions with a pace car changing its speed, followed by a vehicle using adaptive cruise control. The team measured how quickly and aggressively the ACC system responded to the pace car speed changes.

New Approach Shows Regeneration of Severely Damaged Lungs

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Researchers have—for the first time—demonstrated in a clinically relevant model that severely damaged lungs can be regenerated to meet transplantation criteria. Their new study describes the cross-circulation platform that maintained the donor lung’s viability and function and the recipient’s stability for 36-56 hours. Current methodologies of lung support are limited to only 6-8 hours, a time too short for therapeutic interventions that could regenerate the injured lung and improve its function.

Dermatologists Say Sunscreen Is a Vital Tool in the Fight Against Skin Cancer, the Most Common Cancer in the U.S.

American Academy of Dermatology

Recent news about sunscreen has many consumers confused about the best approach for sun protection, and some have questioned whether they should be using sunscreen at all. To help clear up the confusion, dermatologists from the American Academy of Dermatology are reminding consumers that sunscreen—along with seeking shade and wearing protective clothing—plays a key role in protecting the skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, which can increase the risk of skin cancer. Throughout Skin Cancer Awareness Month, the AAD is offering tips to help the public “practice safe sun,” including how to select a sunscreen and other ways to prevent skin cancer.

Radical Desalination Approach May Disrupt the Water Industry

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Columbia Engineering researchers report that they have developed a radically different desalination approach—“temperature swing solvent extraction (TSSE)”—for hypersaline brines. Their study demonstrates that TSSE can desalinate very high-salinity brines, up to seven times the concentration of seawater. Says PI Ngai Yin Yip, “Our results show that TSSE could be a disruptive technology—it’s effective, efficient, scalable, and can be sustainably powered.”
