Two Cornell ECE projects and Innovation Award Winners published in November 2014 Circuit Cellar Magazine
Cornell ECE is dually-represented in the November 2014 issue of Circuit Cellar Magazine! The Ultrasonic Wayfinder System created by Eileen Liu '14, M.Eng '15 and Shane Soh '14 is an echolocation device for the visually impaired comprised of a head-mounted navigation unit and a hand-mounted tactile sensor.
Also included in this issue is a device developed by Randy Song '14 and Alexander Ngai '14, a microcontroller-based blood pressure monitoring device that uses a microcontroller and optical sensors to detect volumetric changes in blood pressure.
Both teams are also past winners of the ECE Innovation Awards. Liu and Soh won the competition in Spring 2014 for Pulso, an earlier iteration of their published project while Song and Ngai won the Fall 2013 Student Award for their device, Scan-E, a medical scanner that measures basic biometrics, including blood pressure.
