The agreement with DHS, worth as much as $2.5 million over five years, is targeted at the creation of sensors that can be deployed in government buildings or airports. Researchers said they can have a working prototype by 2026. Jake Williams has more.

The university announced last week that it will expand its fleet of “telepresence robots” to assist nursing students who are training remotely. The robots, which are essentially tablets on wheels, allow remote users to navigate a clinical environment and meet with patients. Colin Wood has the story.
