ECEs are 2-time winners in Smart Radio Challenge
ECE students took first prize for one of three problems at this year’s Smart Radio Challenge competition at the annual Software Defined Radio in October. The team was last year’s grand prize winner in the competition.
The students successfully developed a smart radio system that will automatically create an ad-hoc extension to an existing communications network, so that voice communications can be relayed between the incident site and existing communications systems along a path like a subway tunnel where signals can travel only short distances.
The team is led by Ph.D. student Mark Silvius and advised by Charles W. Bostian. Members are Terry Brisebois, Qinqin Chen, Al Fayez, Feng Andrew Ge, Bin Phillip Li, Gladstone Marballie, Sujit Nair, Rohit Rangekar, Yongsheng Sam Shi, Ying Wang, and Alex Young.
