Who done it? The classic game of Clue comes to Duke in the form of this semester's ECE 110L Integrated Design Challenge. The ECE 110L Design Challenge comprises a set of diverse tasks from navigation, light-detection, object avoidance, and more. Eleven teams of students have been charged with creating a set of autonomous robots that can work together to solve the Mystery in the Duke Mansion using a variety of sensors. On Monday 4/22, these teams will compete to see which completes the Design Challenge course as accurately, efficiently, and creatively as possible. Students and faculty are invited to attend the Challenge to cheer on the robots (and their student handlers) as they compete for ECE glory. The Design Challenge is the capstone event for the new course, "Fundamentals of Electrical and Computer Engineering" (ECE 110L). This course provides students with an integrated introduction to the key concepts of ECE and introduces the curricular theme of "Integrated Sensing and Information Processing" through the hands-on project which culminates in the Design Challenge.
