• AngelBot: High-speed Target Tracking Robotic Gantry System

    We are now almost completely finished clearing out our lab space that we have been using for senior design. Additionally, the track that the gantry was utilizing has been deconstructed. We are in the process of receiving funds back from the school in order to hand over a couple of key components over to our project customer for their future use.

  • RF Controlled Landscape Lights

    We were able to pass all of our requirements for final check off. Over the weekend we worked on the production of our senior design presentation video. It took longer than expected due to various bloopers and technical hurdles. We also worked on our business card and will have it printed soon.

  • Communicating POV Bicycle Display

    Got our project checked off for our final grade. We then designed our poster and had it sent out to print. Later on we did the same with the buisiness cards. We got our video shot and edited. All that is left for us to do is prepare for the Engineering EXPO.

  • Real Time Video Processing/Computer Vision on an FPGA

    Unfortunately we did not get our project completely working. We could not pinpoint the exact problem in the last few weeks we had to work on it. We met enough of our engineering requirements to pass final checkoff however so our focus the past week has shifted to wrapping up things for expo. Our poster has been printed, our business cards should arrive this Tuesday, and we finished our video presentation over the weekend (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwW0_VV9sGVOOG9NdTY2UWpyazg/edit?usp=sharing).

  • Virtual Mouse

    The virtual mouse project team had their final checkoffs last week and received full credit! Additionally, a poster, business card, and final presentation video was made in preparation for the engineering expo, which was a fun and exciting event. Being able to demonstrate a working prototype for the public was a great experience. Each team member can legitimately say that they gained invaluable skills from senior design.

  • AngelBot: High-speed Target Tracking Robotic Gantry System

    Our group is now in the process of clean up and vacating our current lab space in Graf Hall. We must return the equipment that we were given from our sponsor and also receive compensation for equipment that the group received and which the sponsor would like to have access to once our group is finished with our senior design project. We would also like to turn in a research document that contains calculations that our group performed in order to figure out what equipment would eventually be needed in order to meet future/desired needs of the Dynamic Robotics Laboratory.

Partner Programs

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Collaboratory program offers students to opportunity to experience real, dynamic project work before senior design.
