Alum Success

“The material covered in LSSU's engineering program provided me a solid foundation for graduate studies. The systematic approach and communication skills needed to tackle engineering projects were taught and then practiced over and over again. In particular I appreciate the many hours spent by the faculty to develop oral presentation skills in each student. As a graduate student now, these skills have proven to be highly beneficial and, to my surprise, obviously not taught to the same extent at many other universities.”

Project Description: Vision Integrated Robotics Workcell

Applied Manufacturing Technologies, Inc. required a portable robotic workcell to demonstrate current technology at tradeshows and open houses. Team SVS designed and built a workcell which integrates a robotic arm, vision system, and conveyor system. It accepts a user-defined product order via a touch screen, and relay the information to the robot arm. The robot fulfills the order through the use of a camera to recognize the products, retrieve them from the conveyor system and place the products on an output shelf.

"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
