Bird Initiated Rubbish Disposal System (BIRDS)

April 3, 2024
The BIRDS utilizes food incentives with the aim of conditioning birds to scavenge for littered used cigarettes and deposit them into a controlled storage, so humans can safely dispose. Our product targets public outdoor spaces that are prone to littering. The system utilizes image recognition software to ensure that only birds are permitted access to…

Smarter-Portable Water Bacterial Detector

April 3, 2024
The goal of this project is to create a portable device that enables someone to test the quality of water quickly and easily. To do this, a staining chemical is used which specifically binds to the DNA within bacteria, creating a strong signal. This stain, when excited with UV (365nm) light, will fluoresce into blue…

Switchable RF over Fiber for Low-Cost Operation of Many RF Inputs

April 3, 2024
High speed fiber optic communications is an important, expensive technology in many industries. In avionics and other fields, it is necessary to operate across a wide range of the RF spectrum. With typical systems, this would require a sperate fiber optic communications link for each antenna being used. To remedy this, our system features a…

SAFEPADS: Smart Animals Fencing and Emergency Predator Alert and Detection System

April 3, 2024
SAFEPADS aims to create a multifaceted smart pet collar. The goals for this project are a temperature and humidity feature, geofencing feature, vibration mechanism for training purposes, Wi-Fi capability, predator detection and defense system, and an indoor location system. The objectives to achieve our goals consist of creating a lens design for a wide field…

Ruby Analysis via Spectroscopy Systems

April 3, 2024
Our project’s purpose is to teach beginner players how to play a game of chess by showing them how each piece moves on the board. Our project will enable two people that have little to no knowledge of the game to play a game of chess against each other without an instructor. The chess board…

APALES (Automated Parameter Adjusting Laser Engraving System) is an innovative laser engraver that seamlessly adapts to different materials. Unlike conventional engravers, APALES eliminates the need for manual parameter input by automatically recognizing materials and adjusting settings for optimal results. Our project goals are: (1) Material Differentiation: Achieve 85% accuracy in differentiating wood, leather, and acrylic.…

Project I.R.A.S.

April 3, 2024
Project IRAS (Intricate Real-time Assistance Spectacles) is the next step for smart glasses. It’s a pair of glasses that will have two separate modes: one mode that will display real-time subtitles of who the user is talking to and the other mode that will display patches for the user who has trouble distinguishing specific colors…

Smart Laser Toy for Cats

April 3, 2024
The Smart Laser Toy for Cats is an automatic cat toy that will display a laser pattern for cats to interact with. The device operates by using a passive infrared motion sensor to detect a moving object, once a moving object is detecting a color detection system will determine if it is a cat or…

Frequency-Resolved Electrical Gating for Optical Pulse Characterization

April 3, 2024
The goal of our project is to be able to resolve and characterize an input optical pulse train in terms of amplitude and phase. These input optical pulses are low-energy (>100 pJ) and are short in duration (picoseconds – 100’s of femtoseconds). Due to the low-energy nature of these pulses, we can not use pre-established…

SpectraLaser Elemental Analyzer

April 3, 2024
The SpectraLaser Elemental Analyser prototype is a Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) system designed for analyzing non-organic samples. Developed by a team of undergraduate students, the project aims to create a cost-effective alternative to current LIBS systems for applications in hazardous environments, extraterrestrial exploration, and educational institutions. Key project goals include consistently generating plasma, achieving less…
