ECET Seniors upgrade Sugar Creek Fire Department parade robot

As the Sr. Instructor in Electronics & Computer Engineering Department of ISU College of Technology, I would like to share a community engagement project that has completed this semester with Sugar Creek Fire Department, Bravo Technologies, and four ECET Seniors in the Project Management course (ECT-437) Spring 2021.

The parade (and educational) Robot “Lil Squirt” owned by Sugar Creek Fire Department (West Terre Haute) housed “vintage” technology and required an “upgrade”. This semester 4 Seniors in my class chose the project and completed updating the robot with state-of-the-art technology, brand new paint job, and future enhancements were detailed by this team and, hopefully, will take place in Spring 2022 Project Management course.
