On Tuesday, November 29th, members of the IEEE Central Texas Section Joint SMC-AES Chapter participated in the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) College of Engineering Fall 2016 Technology Symposium. This event showcased senior engineering design projects in a public venue for UTSA students, their parents, local industry, government and the general public. Chapter vice chair, Nils Smith, served as a judge for the event and AESS undergraduate student representative, Garrett Hall, assisted Nils in selecting one design team for special recognition as best representing the Chapter’s technical fields-of-interest. They selected the “Smart Roads” team for their project utilizing ultrasonic distance sensor modules to detect moving objects and communicating with a master module to provide feedback to passersby. The attached photo of the was taken during the awards ceremony.
