Students in Pennsylvania College of Technology’s electronics and computer engineering technology major recently entered projects in the IEEE Region 2 Student Activities Conference, bringing home a second-place finish.

Anthony R. Cherone, of Dover, and Daniel R. Sullivan, of Winfield, teamed to build a robot that finished second in the conference’s Micromouse Competition. The “micromouse” is an autonomous robot – no wider than 25 centimeters on any side – that must find its way from the corner of a maze to the center. Once the maze is revealed, competitors may reconfigure sensors, but they may not feed information about the maze into the robot’s programming.
