Check out the projects that presented at the spring 2022 Innovation Showcase.

Thanks for joining us at the Innovation Showcase!

More than 100 student-produced and industry-sponsored projects presented at the spring 2022 Innovation Showcase. ASU students use this platform to demonstrate how the latest technology meets tangible industry and societal needs.

Check back for details on how you can attend the upcoming fall 2022 Innovation Showcase.

Featured projects

Sage Furman

Degree: Robotics and autonomous systems
Course: EGR 314 – Wearable robotics
Team: 106

The Autohood is a low-cost mechatronic solution that predicts rainy weather conditions. The device includes various sensors to predict rainfall allowing the device to warn the user in the form of a phone notification and deploy a sheltering hood device.

Project: Fluid-powered vehicle challenge project

Degree: Mechanical systems engineering
Course: EGR 402 – Professional design project II
Sponsor: National Fluid Power Association/ASU

Students of the fluid-powered vehicle challenge project are putting the finishing touches on their human-powered trike that includes an integrated hydraulic power system. They will eventually compete against other universities at the Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge.


Security Bot

Degree: Information technology
Course: IFT 402 – Information technology capstone II

Information technology students are preparing their security robot meant to provide warehouses with surveillance support including live stream video capabilities and distance detection among many other features.

The Aviation Programs offer degrees that combine academic studies with professional flight and aviation training. State-of-the-art training and simulation facilities promote realistic immersion for an optimal learning experience.

Sage Furman

Embedded Systems Design

A cornerstone of this course is the mid-semester design reviews that allow students to present their designs — such as wearable robots in the Spring 2022 semester — to various mentors who are industry members from Intel, Microchip, Texas Instruments, Fender and other major companies with operations in Arizona.

Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS)

The Engineering Projects in Community Service program, known as EPICS, is a national award-winning social entrepreneurship program. Teams design, build and deploy systems to solve engineering-based problems for charities, schools and other not-for-profit organizations.


eProjects (EGR 402)

Professional Design Project II is comprised of students from the BSE engineering program (with concentrations in automotive systems, electrical systems, mechanical systems, and robotics systems) and the BS manufacturing engineering program.


Foundations of Engineering Design II

This course instills an entrepreneurial mindset by vertically integrating a single design project in two consecutive freshmen engineering design classes. Students combine machine skills, electronics and programming into their projects.

Software Engineering

The software engineering program blends engineering, computing, project leadership and software construction. Students learn how to make creative software solutions to solve global issues. Industry partners sponsor many of these projects, bringing unmatched, real-world experiences into the learning environment.

Innovation Showcase represents more than an event

ASU students in various engineering and technology programs will demonstrate how their projects have the potential to solve real-world problems using skills obtained during their undergraduate and graduate experiences.

Collaborating with industry partners both in the greater metropolitan area and across the globe, students have the opportunity to engineer creative solutions to meet tangible industry and societal needs. With the guidance of industry and faculty mentors, the capstone environment enables a think tank for students to conceptualize, develop, produce and refine new methodologies, inventions and ideas.

Thank you to the sponsors and mentors who support our students!
