CSE graduate students Zhigang Chen (5th year PhD student) and Xin Hu (1st
year PhD student), and CSE research programmer Scott Gifford took first
place in the newly-created Windows for CE Shared Source contest, a national
competition sponsored by Microsoft and WindowsForDevices.com.
Calling their project, “Smart Cameras for Smart Conference Rooms,” the
team used location sensing technology along with Berkeley motes (wireless
sound sensors) to detect motion and sound in a large conference room.
Cameras then automatically follow what is happening in the meeting, and then
stream the video over the internet.
Chen has worked with TinyOS for the past three years, Hu is currently
working on a handset security project, and Gifford works on location
awareness technologies. Chen and Xu work with
Prof. Kang Shin.
