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.

Wireless Throwing Machine for Disabled Children

Engineering students at Sonoma State were given the challenge to design a throwing or kicking machine for Jaslene, a young girl with cerebral palsy, who cannot use her arms or legs to throw or kick a ball.  Students worked in small groups and came up with some exciting and innovative solutions to the challenge!  These machines make it possible for Jaslene to participate in playground games with peers in ways she has not been able to do previously.  Two of the machines were displayed at the bike camp, June 13-17 2011, at Sonoma State University.Watch the full clip here. The project was first implemented in 2009. Click here for 2010 Projects
