Competition teams

Tuesday evening, the IEEE Eastern-Ontario Region held its annual Engineering Competition in Ottawa. Five teams from Universities in the region presented work they had done as part of their Electrical and Computer Engineering programs.

We are very pleased to announce that the RMC-ECE team comprised of Michael Kogan (Computer Engineering) and Garrett McDonald (Electrical Engineering)took the second prize. Their supervisor, Dr Sidney Givigi, was also on hand.  Well done, gentlemen! 

Summary: The aim of this project is to implement a localization algorithm on a robot that will use its sensors and a map of its environment to determine the location of the robot. Additionally, different sampling algorithms were compared in order to see which ones will give the best results. This is a fundamental part of robot navigation, and therefore is integral to autonomous robotics.
