Organized by IEEE Student Chapter, Robotics Club and Palouse RoboSub Club, the 1st Annual Hardware Hackathon was held in Intelligent Robot Learning Laboratory and Frank Innovation Zone during November 14-15, 2015. The theme for this year’s event was “Internet of Things.” More than 25 teams that is composed of 75 total participants attended the event. Different majors were represented during this event including Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Material Science Engineering.
Teams had 24 hours to plan, design, and build their projects. At the end, all teams presented their works to a panel of judges represented from members of the industry and the academe.
This event was sponsored by Digilent Inc., Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture, and School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

The IRL Lab had two REU participants this year. Jessie Bryant, a junior Mechanical Engineering student from WSU, and Maddie Chili, a junior Computer Science and Communications Design student from Elon University.
The REU program allows undergraduate students to experience what it takes to do research under the guidance of a top research professor and working along with graduate students.
At a poster session yesterday, the REU participants presented the results on their research where it was well attended by students and professors. To read more about their individual research projects, please click on the links below.
RoboSub Club of the Palouse is gearing up to compete in the annual International RoboSub Competition in San Diego. The members are leaving Pullman, Saturday, July 18th, for the week long event. James Irwin, who is one of the IRL Lab’s graduate student, will also be heading to San Diego as a member of the Electrical Engineering team.
Good luck to the team and Go Cougs!!!
