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
