Each year Stony Brook University hosts a two-day interdisciplinary hackathon at the Center of Excellence in Wireless Information Technology (CEWIT). With a focus on industry-relevant challenges, Hack@CEWIT enables forward-thinking students from Long Island and its surrounding regions to design real-world solutions to industry challenges.
This President’s Day weekend, over 150 college students gathered to tackle technical topics surrounding big data, machine learning, IoT, and robotics. The event included hands-on workshops and an industry mentor program, through which engineers, program managers, and drone pilots from ULC Robotics helped to guide the next generation of technology leaders toward the success of their projects.
After a sleepless but productive 43 hours, the hackathon participants presented their final projects to a panel of judges from local businesses and associations. ULC Robotics was pleased to present the award for the Best Use of 3D Visualization/Simulation to the United Sensors of America team.
