Smart Tech and Embedded Systems Final Student Project Presentations and Demonstrations


Social Media Links

Students in the Embedded Systems class, ITMT 492/593, with Professor Jeremy Hajek and Dan Tomal presented their final projects and offered innovative ideas to apply new uses of embedded systems technologies.

Below are project descriptions or you may see video of all presentations at

Project M.U.T.S (Modular Utility Tunnel Sensor)

This project is the outcome of multiple semesters work with ComEd to develop a reliable sensor platform to be placed into sealed electrical vaults in order to provide accurate and precise calculation of various parameters needed to keep the vaults functioning and alert technicians before dangerous thresholds are met. This project won the Dean’s award for the Spring 2016 IPRO track.

Project Arduino Go
A competitive digital and distributed version of the traditional Korean board game, Go. This project seeks to overcome the barrier of making a digital version of the game that is a two player distributed competition -- using wireless technologies.

Project Glass Security
This project seeks to further the use of voice activated Heads Up Displays pioneered by Google and their nascent Glass product. In addition this group will be using 802.15 mesh networks to create a sensor network to feed live HVAC data into this demo.

Project Aura

This is a project to make a mobile device that can sense any color around you and turn it into RGB values.

Project Eco Tower
This project will seek to make a self-sufficient, self-powered, and self-supporting indoor growing module--focusing on using solar power and battery and having no access to the grid.

Project Magic Mirror
This project seeks to create a two-way mirror that has a live data feed embedded into it via an Android device. To further the project, the system will have auto-sensing features if someone is in front of the mirror or away from it--providing real-time information services to you at a glance.

Project Antenna
This project is an extension of the Autonomous Movement Framework for UAVs. In order to operate large scale fleets of drones autonomously you need multiple pairs of radios. This project seeks to eliminate the need for 1 to 1 pairing and allow for multiple drones to be programmed via a single radio.
