Recent Highlights

Congratulations to Natalia Stepanova, Wesley Muthemba, Ross Todrzak, and Michael Cross for winning the Best Demo Paper Award at the 2021 #PETRA conference! The team created a hardware and software solution that uses a #raspberrypi and natural language processing to help reduce cyberbullying during online video games. The project was also recently highlighted at the #gamesbeatsummit in a discussion about digital civility led by Roblox, the Fair Play Alliance, and Accenture. Well done to our @uofwa #MSTI students for their innovative and impactful work!

Congratulations to Nick Ames, Jason Germany, Blake Hannaford, Justin Ho, and John Raiti for being part of the WorldVent team just named the Runner Up in the Commercial equipment category in the 2021 @Core77 Design Awards! The WorldVent ventilator was created to address the pressing need for mechanical ventilators in early response to the COVID pandemic, and has received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA. The compact and lightweight unit comes in at only ~10% the cost of traditional ventilators, is assembled with fewer than 150 easy-to-find parts, and has a modular design and requires simple instruction. Visit worldvent.org to learn more about the project, or the link in our bio to see the full award on Core77.⁠

This week, students in the hardware/software lab course and the MSTI robotics track presented updates on their projects. Among them was this Fetch Robotics project that involved using the robot to aid in daily assistance such as identifying and moving objects. The team worked to build a software package that ensures the robot can not only sense, identify, and move desired objects, but also scan for people and avoid them.
