• 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!

  • Wireless Security System

    This is the last update from team Indiamlix! It has been a hard fought 9 months and the project is completely finished with 100% of the engineering requirements satisfied. The group will be presenting the project at the Engineering Expo on May 18th. Stop by the booth and come check out the Wireless Security System!

  • 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).

  • Smart Weight Distribution System

    We made it! The team successfully passed all engineering requirements in final check-off, and received full credit. Another big progress the team made this week is the final video presentation. We finished shooting by Friday, and continued to work on video editing over the weekend. As this update is posted, the video should be up on group googlesite. The team are looking forward to engineering expo held on this Friday.

  • MusicBox

    And that's a wrap. The musicbox is officially in a stable place and successfully meets all of our design requirements. In using the device in my house, I know that it does everything that I had hoped it would. Playing music has never been easier and never been more fun.

  • 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.
