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: Electonic Steering Column Clamping System

Team SI was tasked to optimize and build an electronic clamping module prototype. The system unlocks and locks a steering column allowing the user to adjust the position of the steering wheel and column with just the push of a button. The result is a module that is smaller and more cost effective than the original prototype. An add-on feature includes a wireless remote to actuate the system that will be available for an aftermarket version of the module.
