The Sloan Automotive Laboratory is actively recruiting UROP students. Current projects include:
- EECS or electronics-savvy students in other departments:
- Data acquisition configuration. The objective is to build a specialized signal generator to help setup and troubleshoot DAQ equipment in the lab.
- RPM measurement from quadrature encoder. The goal is to build a device to provide real time RPM data from a quadrature encoder.
