Two of our engineering student teams won the 1st, and 3rd places in the student poster competition at the 9th IEEE Conference on Technologies for Sustainability (SusTech 2022).
Team NASA Lunabotics consist of our student members Bryce Jensen, Walter Foster, Forest Yllescas, Jason Knight-Han, Jesus Perez Quintero. "Our robot for In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) is one such technology that can enable a sustainable future." said Bryce during the presentation. "Space exploration doesn’t have to be as costly. It can transition from exploration to habitation. Humanity has a future in the stars, but we need to do it more sustainably."
Our students Gabriel Nicholson, John Ohmer, and Samuel Hobbs's team presented their research findings and engineering effort in the Automatic Unmanned Surface Vehicle-Based Water Quality Monitoring System (USV-WQMS) project. "The team was grateful to have been able to witness the progress in technology research" as the team stated during the awards ceremony.
Both teams are mentored by our faculty member Dr. Nansong Wu, under funding support from NASA (Lunabotics) and California Space Grant Consortium (USV-WQMS).
