• "Quick and Dirty" Programmable Power Analyzer

    We finished our 10 minute video that outlines how our instrument works, who worked on the instrument, and what the instrument is for. We have all of our expo materials on order, just waiting for the notification that they are all ready for pick up. Let's just say we are all pumped for this event, eager to show our work!

  • 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.

  • Smart Home

    We finished making our video and have it uploaded to Youtube. You can find the video by following the link provided here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpbLpjP2ivM The video is 10 minutes and 1 second long which fits the length requirement for our video. It also includes all of the necessary components and can be found on our main page and section 5 in our google site.

  • Social Pendant

    At this time the pendant’s display and computer control (the GUI) are working, but the transmission between the pendants is not yet operational due to complications with the microcontroller's memory limit. We have three pendants built to our current level and two more pendants with the batteries being added for the Engineering Expo.

  • AngelBot: High-speed Target Tracking Robotic Gantry System

    We have successfully represented our group at the engineering expo and made solid contacts. We were also very proud of the ways in which we were able to demonstrate our robot to the general public. On the whole, we drew the attention of more people than we thought we would and also drew industry representatives to our display than we envisioned. In this sense, the project was an overall success!

  • 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.
