WPIX - Personal Black Box, UMass AmherstSome college students have created what they call a human black box. Engineering students from UMass Amherst presented it at this weekend's Cornell Cup in Florida. Over the course of the school year they built a prototype black box for humans that you could carry around wherever you went. (Courtesy of WPIX-TV 11, New York City)

Cornell Cup 2013: Bringing Student Innovation to Life (May 4, 2013)
Channel Intel videoAt the Cornell Cup, student design innovation is front and center. Leveraging embedded technology based on Intel® Atom™ processors, 30 college teams from around the country developed amazing solutions to real-world problems. Kevin Sellers of Intel and David Schneider of Cornell University discuss their partnership and the importance of science, technology, engineering, and math in collegiate education.

University of Pennsylvania - Titan
First-Place Winner (May 3, 2013)

Titan - University of PennsylvaniaTitan designed an untethered, powered, upper-body exoskeleton for use in rehabilitation and therapeutic applications, as well as occupations requiring augmented strength. The exoskeletal system will be inexpensive, streamlined and wireless.

Worcester Polytechnic Institute - Cyber Physical Systems
Second-Place Winner (May 3, 2013)

WPI - Cyber Physical SystemsThe goal for this team was to develop a semi-autonomous wheelchair and body-brain computer interface using cost-effective, modular sensor packages that can be easily mounted to a wide variety of commercially available powered wheelchairs.

University of Colorado Denver - Intracell
Third-Place & Media Award Winner (May 3, 2013)

Intracell - University of Colorado DenverThis project developed inexpensive, networked cell phone transceiver nodes that function as a local extension to the global cellular network. The goal was to provide service coverage under various geographical and architectural constraints.

UMass Lowell - BioBot
People's Choice Award Winner (May 3, 2013)

BioBot - UMass LowellThis team’s goal is to design an automated device capable of quantizing the infectious agents in areas where people are more susceptible to infection, such as a hospital, and provide much-needed information to the proper personnel.

University of Houston - Team Ignitus
Honorable Mention (May 3, 2013)

Team Ignitus - University of HoustonTeam Ignitus created a robotic device that can help with the preservation of life in firefighting situations by collecting and transmitting site data to a firefighter via on-site remote control.

Columbia University - Assistive Robotic Manipulator (ARM)
Honorable Mention (May 3, 2013)

Columbia ARMThe ARM team’s goal was to design a relatively inexpensive, human-friendly wheelchair mounted robotic arm.

Oregon State University - MetroSwift
Honorable Mention (May 3, 2013)

MetroSwift - Oregon State UniversityMetroSwift created a unified interface which controls all major sub-systems of a car and reports back the state of critical systems – all through a simple interface is concentrated on the dashboard and steering wheel.

UMass Lowell - LEAF
(May 3, 2013)

UMass Lowell - LEAFThe team designed and modified a robot to aid those suffering from lower back pain. The “Leaf Bot” will use leaf-recognition technology to eliminate the need for manual leaf removal services.

Eyes-on with Cornell University's laser tag dunebots (May 4, 2013)
Cornell's dunebotCornell University may be the host of the Cornell Cup competition, but that doesn't mean it can't bring its own robots to join in on the fun. This year, students brought along a few bots, dubbed dunebots, outfitted with all-terrain wheels and equipped with laser tag turrets. (Courtesy of engadget)
