Mac engineers show off work

The hard work of electrical and computer engineering students went on display at McMaster today.

Over 150 students showed off their roughly 40 projects at the annual poster day. The day gives students the chance to demonstrate both theoretical and applied skills.

Each team was required to identify a complex engineering problem and work as a research and development unit to solve it. George Williams’ group created a remote 3D vision device.

“A virtual reality headset which tracks your head movements. We’ve wired it up over internet to two cameras. Our idea is that you can see in 3D from a remote location, so over the internet this video is streamed to the headset, and it could be used in applications like robotic surgeries, inspections of dangerous environments.”

Prize winners from three categories — electrical, computer and bio-medical — will be announced tomorrow.
