What’s with the boxes and towers in the campus parking lots?
You’ve probably noticed the antenna-like towers and black tote cases that have appeared around the UC Riverside campus in recent weeks. Not surprisingly, they’ve prompted some questions. “Some people are curious,” said Ranga Rajan Thiruvenkatachari, a graduate student in mechanical engineering, who is part of the research team that set up the equipment. “Sometimes I see people stopping to see what’s happening.” It’s a question they get all the time, said Aaron Caddell, a senior mechanical engineering major, who is also part of the research team. The equipment went up in mid-July and will
