Brain-computer interface, mapping robot and more big inventions unveiled by U of T students

April 2, 2014

TORONTO, ON — Inven­tions we may soon use dai­ly will be revealed Fri­day by under­grad­u­ate engi­neer­ing stu­dents study­ing elec­tri­cal and com­put­er engi­neer­ing at Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to.

Some inno­va­tions seem straight out of sci­ence fic­tion, such as a solar-assist­ed unmanned aer­i­al vehi­cle and an exoskele­tal arm. Oth­ers solve every­day has­sles, such as apps to get you to your flight on time or mea­sure air pol­lu­tion. These exam­ples are among dozens of projects fea­tured at this high­ly antic­i­pat­ed design fair, host­ed by The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Depart­ment of Elec­tri­cal & Com­put­er Engi­neer­ing.

Stu­dents will demon­strate their fin­ished prod­ucts, designed to solve real-life engi­neer­ing prob­lems and devel­oped over the past year in con­sul­ta­tion with U of T pro­fes­sors.

WHAT: Elec­tri­cal & Com­put­er Engi­neer­ing Design Show­case

WHEN: Fri­day, April 4, noon – 2:30 p.m.

WHERE: Bahen Cen­tre for Infor­ma­tion Tech­nol­o­gy, cen­tral atri­um, 40 St. George Street, Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to
