NC State Computer Science Design Team will participate in the Sixth Annual IEEE Computer Society International Design Competition (CSIDC)
The members of the 2005 team are: David Coblentz (CSC), Dakota Hawkins (CSC), Jonathan Lewis (CSC), and Ben Noffsinger (Fisheries & Wildlife). The team's faculty and staff mentors are Dr. Robert Fornaro, Ms. Margaret Heil, and Mr. John Stone of our Senior Design Center and Dr. Richard Lancia, Fisheries & Wildlife. Their project is called NEAT: Networks for Endangered Animal Tracking. NEAT combines GPS technology with wireless sensor networks to produce a potential product for wildlife officials and agencies. The system utilizes battery-powered, ad hoc, wireless sensor systems to collect, store, and forward GPS-based location data that can be used to track animal movements.

Congratulations to this terrific team as they prepare to go to Washington! Please stay tuned for more details.
