EE students advance to 2015 Cornell Cup finals

Team-StratusFor the third consecutive year, a team of electrical engineering students under the leadership of assistant professor Dan Connors, has advanced to the finals of the Intel Cornell Cup. The competition will be held at the NASA Kennedy Space Flight Center May 1 – 2.

Team Stratus, Skyler Saleh, Bruno Mary, Antonio Duarte Jr, and Xin Li, will investigate the use of 3D sensing and computer vision technology available for mobile platforms, and design custom algorithms that trade-off execution time, accuracy, and power efficiency. Overall, the goal of their project is to demonstrate a large-scale near-field mobile 3D mapping system to aid in rapid disaster recovery and environmental analysis scenarios.

Best of luck at the finals and congratulations!
