On April 17th the team was invited to city hall where we were recognized by The City of Battle Creek. Continue reading “A City Hall meeting”
The Battle Creek Area Math and Science Center InvenTeam has been developing the next iteration of the I.A.D.S. in the previous month. Recently, the flir infrared camera was integrated into the product, allowing detection from up to 400 ft, close to our ideal goal of 500 ft. Currently our engineering team is training a machine learning algorithm to detect deer. The newest camera we purchased has a sensing range of up to 6,500 feet. However we don’t know the accuracy at that range. Testing is scheduled to be set for after further development and design ratification. The media team is looking to broadcast our product further, with the marketing team designing our brochures, banners, etc. The sustainability team is looking towards gaining the license for the product, becoming state certified as well. Final edits are being made towards the presentation at Eurekafest. We can’t wait to see everyone there!
On April 19, 2018, the team had the opportunity to present to employees and the CEO of the Castor Concepts Corporation. We started out with a presentation from the team, followed by feedback and a Q&A. The members of the team present were: Cece Anderson, Case Brophy, Ben Brown, Stephen Clifton, Sanye Sichinga, and Joan Welk. Continue reading “Castor Concepts”
On February 24th, between 3:00 and 7:00 pm, our InvenTeam held its very first Mid-Grant Technical Review (MGTR). The purpose of the MGTR was to show off what the team had done so far with the InvenTeam grant received from the Lemelson-MIT Foundation.
The Engineering team has made great progress on the prototype and are working hard to keep improving it. It started small with a breadboard, Arduino, and a camera. This setup was just to see how thermal imaging, and thermal image processing worked. Then they upgraded. Continue reading “Engineering Team Update”
Over the past few months the InvenTeam has been meeting with everyone we can. Pictured here we have members Ben Brown and Evan Stafford presenting to the Battle Creek Schools Secretaries Union.
On 10/24/17 Lemelson-MIT announced the recipients of the InvenTeam grant. Our team was lucky enough to be granted such an honor. Continue reading “Kicking Off”
