EECS Projects

Smart Pill Container

Smart Pill Container
EECS

The purpose of the Smart Pill Container is to assist consumers with taking pills on time and keep record when they do take them successfully. Our product achieves that by having an alarm system to alert the user that it’s time to take their pills; we then check if the correct day on the pill box has successfully been opened and closed using reed switch sensors. Both those parts currently work and are the base functionalities for the prototype right now.

UAV Forge

EECS
MAE

UAV Forge is a multidisciplinary engineering design team that focuses on the design, manufacturing, programming and testing of autonomous aerial vehicles. The design aims to fulfill the constraints that allows the team to participate in the AUVSI SUAS 2021-2022 competition season. The AUVSI competition requires that the system’s UAV have autonomous flight capabilities, ability to perform object avoidance of stationary and dynamic objects, the ability to do object detection, localization, and classification. The system must also perform an airdrop task wherein UAV Forge will be manufacturing an assembly that will allow the UAV to drop payloads that safely land on designated targets. Though the emphasis for this year’s team is to perform well in the competition setting, the primary objective is to ensure the undergraduate students participating in the project apply their engineering skills to a compelling real-world problem.

UCI CubeSat

EECS
MAE

The CubeSat team at UCI is a student-led effort to launch a 2U nanosatellite into orbit to test two UCI research payloads. The satellite operates with five subsystems (Power/Payload, Communications, Avionics, Structures/Thermal, and Systems Engineering), in addition to housing two payloads.
