Students Demonstrate Microprocessor-Based Systems Projects

EECS undergraduate students Samuel DeBruin, Joseph Cobb, and Mitchell Adler demonstrate their prototype wireless AC power meter. The device, targeted for cubic-inch form factor, will enable building occupants to easily monitor the energy consumption of their plug loads.

On December 17, student teams from EECS 373, Design of Microprocessor-Based Systems, demonstrated their embedded design projects at a poster and demo session in the CSE Bulding's Tishman Hall. The projects, listed below, are a result of their work in the class taught by Asst. Prof. Prabal Dutta. For more information, visit the course website. This course was sponsored in part by the U-M College of Engineering, EECS, Microsemi Corp., Cypress Semiconductor, and Microsoft Corp.
