Congratulations to ASPIRE’s Mihir Patil on winning the Warren Dere Design Award! it was largely for his work on Project Hermione, an automatic camera-tracking system for recording class lectures based on the same technology Mihir worked with the SEJITS team on for doing object tracking in live video!
The Warren Dere Design Award award is presented to graduating seniors whose accomplishments in engineering design are judged to be most outstanding. Evidence might include accomplishments during a co-op or internship assignment or on a summer job, or achievements on a project for an upper division design course. This memorial award honors Professor Dere who also worked at IBM and was known to be outstanding in engineering systems design.
Well done, Mihir!
