SCSE welcomes Meridian Junior College

Published on: 20-Oct-2017

On 5th October 2017, a group of 40 students from Meridian Junior College visited the School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE). The visit was organised through College of Engineering. Despite the heavy downpour and the long journey from their campus, the students were thrilled and excited when they were showcased some of our exciting projects. Students and their teacher were also given an opportunity to try out the demonstrations. The students were also given a short overview on the College of Engineering, its 6 engineering schools and their programmes.

The projects showcased during the visit were as follows:

Jumping Sumo:
This is a robotic intelligence demo, where the robots were programmed to run instructions such as roll, spin, jump over obstacles and follow the line. This demo was prepared by a group of SCSE students specifically for the visit.

3D First-Person-View remote driven vehicle:
This is a Final Year Project that uses wifi interface to remotely 'drive' a robotic vehicle with a steering wheel and pedals.  Two on-vehicle cameras are also used to stream video images to an Android phone attached in a VR-headset to provide a 3D First-Person-View (FPV) display, with the cameras synchronized to the driver head’s movement. User can remotely control the robotic vehicle by using the steering wheel and pedals, while having a 3D view of the vehicle surrounding through  the VR-headset.

A big thank you to the students and teachers for taking time to visit us at NTU-SCSE.  We look forward to see more schools visiting us in the near future.
