*Call for Participation: Student Design Competition*

*2020 IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligent

*July 6-10, 2020, Boston, MA, USA*

The 2020 IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligent
Mechatronics (AIM 2020) invites undergraduate students to participate in
the mechatronic systems design competition in July 2020 in Boston, MA, USA.
We seek undergraduate student teams from different scientific disciplines
and of various backgrounds to propose and demonstrate creative solutions to
a specified real-life problem related to mechatronic systems and
engineering. The purpose of the competition is to foster educational and
research interest in mechatronics, create a forum for students to share
their innovative ideas, and provide the mechatronics community with new
perspectives on design and fabrication.

*Topics: *A general submission track and a special track will be organized
in the competition. Separate awards will be setup for each track. However,
the teams who participate in the special track are eligible for the awards
in both tracks.

*General Submission:* We seek novel solutions that incorporate cutting edge
technologies and take advantage of the considerable advances in
mechatronics research. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
intelligent systems, control systems, cyber-physical systems,
micro-electro-mechanical systems, human-machine interfaces, robotics, smart
materials and structures, etc.

*Special Track on Networked Computing Infrastructure: *This track looks for
innovative projects in the areas of computing, control, and communications
for ground or air mobile platforms or edge applications. Teams must use
Jetson TX2 embedded systems platform to develop solutions. Hardware and
software technical support can be provided by the organizers if needed
under the support of the Networked Airborne Computing team funded by US
National Science Foundation through awards 1730675, 1730589, 1730570 and
1730325. Please see the link for more information:

*Competition Guidelines:*

·     *Procedure*: Teams are required to submit the project description
(i.e., project title, abstract, team members, and advisor(s)). The ones
accepted for the competition will be notified. The teams should design,
build, and document their projects before AIM 2020 conference. During the
conference, a poster/demonstration session will be held where the students
present their projects. Teams are encouraged to bring the prototypes or
demonstration videos of their projects.

·     *Participants*: The competition is open to undergraduate students
only. Each team should consist of no more than four members.

·     *Registration*: At least one team member must register the AIM 2020
conference to participate in the competition.

*Timeline: *All submissions are through
