CycleSafe is a bicycle safety device and application aimed at enforcing the 3-foot distance law between vehicles and cyclists. Originally developed by the University of Arizona, the device could capture pictures of close passes. The current iteration, led by the ASU capstone team, focuses on enhancing user experience by enabling direct image transfer to smartphones, real-time incident monitoring, automatic image selection and automatic license plate recognition. Users can view and select captured images for upload to law enforcement agencies, streamlining the reporting process. Overall, CycleSafe’s latest version aims to provide a superior user experience while improving cyclist safety. This project is sponsored by John Dollar, president of the Rob Dollar Foundation and esteemed experts Daniel Latt and Robert Heinrichs. The course association is SER 517 Software Factory Capstone led by associate teaching professor, Nouh Alhindawi. This team is affiliated with the School of Computing and Augmented Intelligence

In collaboration with Los Alamos National Laboratory, this project addresses strain on glovebox operators during object disposal, particularly concerning damage to barrel liners. It involves integrating a collaborative robot to safely dispose of objects, enhancing safety and efficiency while minimizing liner damage and operator strain. The approach includes creating a controllable virtual model of the physical arm, designing a step by step process for disposal, and integrating a robotic arm into the glovebox. This project is sponsored by Robert Putnam and is in conjunction with EGR 402 Professional Design Project II with associate professor of engineering in The Polytechnic School, professor Darryl Morrell. This team is affiliated with the School of Manufacturing Systems and Networks.

MoveItORLoseIt is a mobile application designed to eliminate the chaos in the moving process. This project aims to solve the problem of items being damaged or lost by providing a visually intuitive way to track and organize belongings. The application utilizes boxes and tags to categorize and contextualize items. Once moved, items can be easily found using these tags, making the process less stressful. This project is in conjunction with IFT 402 Information Technology Capstone Project II with assistant teaching professor Tatiana Walsh and business development director, John Lewis. This team is affiliated with The Polytechnic School.

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!
