Poster Fair: The Biggest Event for Your Capstone Projects

Poster fair is the annual show of all capstone projects in Systems and Computer Engineering department. It is an opportunity to show off the products developed by students with high visibility. It represents the apex of the knowledge and skills a student has accumulated through 4-year academic study. Many of these products have received various awards in the past. For example, two projects won the first and second prizes in the 2022 IEEE International Humanitarian Technology Conference video competition. In 2023, various projects were classified into six categories. They are Robot and AV, Communications, Biomedical, Software Engineering, Machine Learning, and Security. Products developed in each category represent the state-of-the-art technology and very popular applications.

Robot and AV are one of the most vibrant areas in recent years. They ride on the recent trend of electric vehicle and environment protection. Many projects in this category targets at some very specific and interesting challenges, such as pedestrian behavior prediction, lane keeping technique, arrival direction estimation, vision-based robot control.

Communications is another exciting category with the increasing deployments of IoT devices world-wide and ever-growing internet applications. Some interesting examples include IoT for smart gardening and farming, video transmission through LTE controlled drone, virtual reality platform for remote monitoring and collaboration.

Biomedical technology has played a very important role in improving healthcare. There are many interesting biomedical projects ranging from real-time patient monitoring, 3D-bioprinter implementation, haptic pen development, to biomedical imaging.

Software engineering has been a very strong area in our department. We have a large number of software projects that focus on fancy applications. Some examples include multi-variable sports scheduler, discrete event controller for a helicopter, and travel map.

With ChatGPT shaking the world, machine learning is attracting more and more attention. We have some ambitious projects involving machine learning. A project that provides customized internet searching is based on federated learning concept proposed by Google. Classification of finger flexions is a machine learning application to biomedical area.

Finally, the security area has been a hot topic for the past decade. We have several projects that are among the front-end in this area. Some examples are attacker behavior analysis tool, IoT identity management based on block chain, threat modeling solution, etc.

It is a life-time experience to participate in a capstone project and contribute your skills and innovative ideas to something that can change people’s daily lives.

Announcing 2023- 2024 Video Competition Winners

A special congratulations goes to this years’ winning groups in the video competition. It was an incredible close competition and two groups triumph as 1st place winners.
