Alum Success

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

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.

"Federal grants through the aquatic research lab let me work on an assessment of lake sturgeon in the St. Mary’s River," he says. "I've been tracking adult sturgeon by radio telemetry in hopes of identifying their spawning areas." Besides his sturgeon hydrophone telemetry work at LSSU, Brandon has studied adult Atlantic salmon, radio-tracked an elk herd in Canada, and banded migrating owls at Whitefish Point. [ more ]
