“Electrochemical Energy Storage:  Towards Planetary Decarbonization & Profitable Sustainability"

 

Speaker:  Donald R Sadoway, Professor of Materials Chemistry, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

 

Shifting away from fossil fuels to carbon-free electricity has never been more urgent. The clock is ticking on climate change mitigation; massive materials shortages loom on the horizon; and despite an abundance of clean power from solar and wind, we currently lack the means to manage their fluctuations. To surmount these challenges, efficient, safe, flexible, cost-effective, grid-level energy storage will need to be developed. Our speaker, who invented the liquid metal battery, will describe electrochemical innovations that will be needed to make this energy transition. He’ll then explore deeper issues that pervade the invention process; what to do and not to do; and how he goes about “inventing the inventors.”

“Transforming Medical Logistics with Drones:
Bringing Health Products to Africa, the US & Beyond”

Speaker: Whitney H Huang

Embedded Software Engineer, Zipline International

The COVID-19 pandemic, natural disasters and war have rendered the timely delivery of vaccines, blood, medicines, personal protective equipment, food and other critical supplies --- more urgent than ever. Yet, often the only way to get such desperately needed items safely through to their destinations is with delivery drones. What recent technical advances in the design, testing and deployment of such UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) are making this possible? Our speaker will delve into aspects of Zipline’s rapid, integration-level testing that include: HITL (Hardware-in-the-Loop) testing; a Fault Injection testing system that induces pathological failure modes (in-flight); her software for a Motor Pod End-of-Line tester; and embedded and backend software for Zipline’s Launcher system. The company is a major deliverer of blood products to Rwanda and Ghana, and runs more than 200 flights/day halfway around the world, 24/7. To help accomplish this, Whitney became a certified Flight Operator and Controller, with FAA Part 107
certification.


ZOOM LINK will be sent to the first 300 who register by May 9th at
