Alum Success

"I graduated from LSSU in Mechanical Engineering in 1999, and have since had a heavy focus in robotics and systems integration. I spent my first 7 years with FANUC in Rochester Hills as a product manager, and have since worked for Hartness International managing a robotic automation group. We continue to grow at a rapid pace, and will integrate 60+ robots this year and see no slow down in sight. My experience at LSSU has enabled me to take charge in this challenging and growing market."

Project Description: Internet Controlled Robot

Team OSR has built and tested a unique connection harness to establish proper signal routing during Delphi’s steering system testing process. The programmable signal router that will provide a more cost-effective and efficient testing device. It will allow Delphi engineers to program the routing of signals in any configuration needed to establish proper interfacing to any model of steering column.
The 2006-07 senior project team Universal Signal Routing handled Phase I of the harness by developing the design and proof of concept. OSR completed Phase II which was the construction of a prototype, and testing and manufacturing six signal routing boxes for Delphi.

Asymmetric Synthesis Using Chiral Auxiliaries and Titanium Enolates

Michael Overbeek

Chiral auxiliary-mediated asymmetric aldol additions are an important method for asymmetric carbon-carbon bond formation. Dr. Daveid A. Evans from Harvard University has developed the use of a boron enolate to allow for specific stereochemistry, often called an ďEvanís Aldol Reactioní. The use of a titanium enolate, instead of a borony enolate, has been documented to create the opposite stereocenters when utilizing the Evanís Aldol methodology. This project describes an attempt to form an anti-Evans product with the addition of phenylacetaldehyde to R-(-)-4-Benzyl-3propionyl-2oxazolidinone. The use of an aldehyde substrate when utilizing a chiral titanium enolate has not been well documented in the literature.
