SDSM& T WINS HARDWARE DESIGN AND STUDENT PAPER CONTESTS AT IEEE REGIONAL CONFERENCE / ROBOTICS TEAM 1 OF ONLY 6 TO QUALIFY
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology ( SDSM& T) won first place in both the hardware design and the student paper contest at the recent Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers ( IEEE) Region 5 Conference in Fort Worth, Texas. Angie Monheim, a senior electrical engineering major from Rapid City, took first place in the IEEE Student Paper Contest. Ed Fetzer and Toby Foss, electrical and computer engineering seniors respectively from Rapid City, won the IEEE Hardware Design Contest.
SDSM& T was one of approximately half of the twelve entering teams whose student- designed robot qualified in IEEE’s new Robotics Contest. The contest requires student- designed robots to navigate through a maze to find the room in which a candle is burning, blow out the candle and then return to home base without touching any of the maze walls. SDSM& T’s robotics team members are Karl Hiramoto, computer engineering, Arlington; Angie Monheim, electrical engineering, Rapid City; and Marijane White, Computer engineering, Fort Wayne, IN. Rich Ivey, a computer science major from Sioux Falls, provided assistance with programming the robot.
Dr. Neil Chamberlain, SDSM& T Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering, serves as faculty advisor to the IEEE Student Chapter.
