Arnob is a senior at Carnegie Mellon University. In May 2014, he will graduate with a double major in Electrical & Computer Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. Arnob has experience in software development and has an interest in medical devices.
Matt is a senior double-majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. Last summer, he worked as a software development intern for Microsoft where he worked on the wish list feature for an enterprise resource planning software solution. This summer, he has accepted a position as a software engineering intern at Google where he will work to optimize the software stack for the Google Brain project. He will return to Carnegie Mellon in the fall to begin to pursue his Master’s in ECE.
Eric is a senior/graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University. In May 2014, he will graduate with a double major bachelor’s degree in mechanical and biomedical engineering as well as a master’s degree in mechanical engineering. He hopes to pursue a career in robotics or medical devices post-graduation. He also enjoys traveling.
Sara is a senior triple-majoring in Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Biological Sciences. Since summer 2013, she has been researching at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing center, using computer simulations to study the neuromuscular junction. Her ultimate goal is to pursue an MD/PhD.
Its been a busy week for Team Tocotronics. While struggling to stay warm in the polar vortex’s second strike, the team was hard at work preparing for the presentation of our first prototype. In the lab, the team practiced contracting and relaxing muscles while hooked up to electrodes to find the best way to process the signal from the electrodes into meaningful data.
Outside of the lab, the team worked on allowing Arduino boards to communicate with an Android device. We were successful in allowing data to flow between the Arduino and the Android.
While we still have our work cut out for us for the rest of the semester, we’re really excited about what we’ve accomplished so far.
Pictures soon to come
