Advancing Sustainability Using ICT

The environmental issues we now face are believed to be the result of our social systems. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has the potential to help us better understand, monitor in read-time, and reduce our impact on the environment. AITIS Lab, in the Department of Engineering Science, is committed to utilize the engineering expertise and research activity of its faculty to initiate innovative and sustainable graduate and undergraduate projects to educate future environmentally responsible and skilled engineers. We work with local industries and organizations to provide sustainable engineering solutions. Click here to learn more about our research activities and ongoing projects .....more; / Main Page.

Remote Control Vehicle Using Arduino

Design a wireless Microchip-based vehicle (moving robot) that can be controlled via Arduino using Bluetooth or WiFi. The robot must be equipped with different proximity sensors (and other sensors e.g., gas sensor) and an accelerometer. When the vehicle passes over a bump, the phone must vibrate. By moving the phone in different directions the robot will change direction and speed. As the robot gets close to any object, the position of the object with respect to the vehicle must be shown on the phone display. If the gas sensor senses any gas, for example, the result should be sent to the phone display.
