IEEE Hardware Team Wins Robotics Trophy at SoutheastCon
SoutheastCon, the annual IEEE Region 3 Technical, Professional, and Student Conference, is attended by Georgia Tech students each year. The Georgia Tech IEEE Hardware Team last hosted in 2009, and this is the first time in many years the IEEE Hardware Team has reached the finals in the main competition.
Teammates Vikram Jain (MS/BS CS, BS EE), Eric Beauchemin (MS + BS ECE), Benjamin Elder (BS CS), Max Mccammon (BS ME), Adrian Radulski (BS ME), and Eugene YI (BS ME) created two “consumer off-
A second team from Georgia Tech competed in a separate “open” competition for schools with more than one team. The open competition team included Philip Wolfe (MS + BS ECE), Don Gi Min (BS EE), Matt Kelley (BS ME), Raj Tawde (BS EE), Samarthya Bhatnagar (BS CmpE), Jon Dolan (BS CmpE), and Soham Gadgil (BS CmpE). Their robot “I85” had a non-moving base with walls that expanded outward to accomplish tasks. I85 garnered a degree of celebrity at the event with its extending tape measure maneuver, which many agreed was a highlight. You can watch the video here.
