Congratulations to our ECE Senior Design teams. It was a trying semester as the students were forced to complete their projects while working from home. Even under such severe constraints, the students all came through and were able to deliver for the most part on their projects.
Unfortunately, the students could not present their projects at a live demo day, but virtual presentations for all of our senior design projects can be viewed at https://seniordesign-2020.engr.uconn.edu/ece-projects/. Most of them are accompanied with a 5-6 min video. (Please note that a few do not have a video approved by their sponsor for public release.)
The winners for this year’s projects are:
1st place: Team 2013 (Carrier)
Verification Strategy and Tools for IoT Systems (Advisor: Prof. Shalabh Gupta)
Team members: Balsha Maric, Wissam Razouki, Long Phan
2nd place: Team 2032 (Sikorsky)
Autonomous Firefighting Helicopter (Advisor: Prof. Ashwin Dani)
Team members: Francisco Rivera, Joseph Morello, Shivendra Singh, Yinuo Huang
3rd place: Team 2019 (Hartford HSB)

An official announcement video by Prof. Liang Zhang can be seen at https://youtu.be/5rx946I2DOU
Many thanks to everyone involved in this process, especially during this challenging time: Senior design coordinator Prof. Liang Zhang, all faculty advisors, department administrative staff, lab manager Phil Duncan, and our three faculty judges, Kaipei Yang, Ali Gokirmak and Faquir Jain.
