CoE Students Win IEEE Philadelphia Award
March 20, 2017
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE) Philadelphia Section has awarded five students from Electrical and Computer Engineering with the Section Student Project Award. Advised by Professor Kapil Dandekar, the joint undergraduate and graduate team of Dahn Nguyen, James Chacko, Cem Sahin, Xaime Rivas Rey and Logan Henderson won the award for their research in augmented reality for wireless systems. The project, BeamViewer, is an AR framework which utilizes data collected from the radios controlling antennas to produce a real-time, detailed visual representation of their radiation patterns.
This is the inaugural year for the IEEE Philadelphia Section Student Project Award, which honors individuals or groups of students who have produced exceptional and innovative work within the Delaware Valley region.
The award will be presented at the IEEE Philadelphia Section’s Annual Awards Banquet and Gala on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at the Union League of Philadelphia.
