IEEE Robotics and Automation Society

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

IEEE Tech Tour @ Intel w/ Axiom Electronics was another huge success for Oregon Section IEEE. Four students from OregonTech attended as Dave Shinsel demonstrated RealSense. We saw through the eyes of a robot camera, learned of real time mapping, object avoidance, and SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping). Pictured here is Ed Epp, Executive Committee Chair for IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. ROS wrappers from this demonstration are open source and available by scanning the QR code in the photo.

IEEE Tech Tour: Overview of Intel’s RealSense Depth Sensors

Friday, February 10th, 2017

Dave Shinsel will provide an overview of available depth sensors, and a deep-dive on Intel’s RealSense depth sensors, including a new sensor that adds visual SLAM capability. He will discuss how these sensors work in conjunction with Computer Vision technologies for various robotics applications, including object avoidance, person interaction, object recognition and localization, and SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping). Further the talk will cover how to access these capabilities via their ROS wrappers.

Oregon Tech Students Attend IEEE Rock Stars of Cybersecurity

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016


Oregon Tech students from the Wilsonville Campus are home from the IEEE Rock Stars of Cybersecurity Conference held in Seattle on September 13. This one day event was packed with professional speakers who addressed ways to protect organization and personal data with strong solutions. Speakers from Google, PayPal, Intel, and Motorola gave actionable advice on securing intellectual property by preventing password phishing, algorithms to identify fraud, complying with regulations, and addressing insider threats.  Two of our students won new technology prizes during the Bingo and Raffle drawings. We brought home several free IEEE publications of the magazine Computing Edge, The Struggle to Provide Security, for our students. A guest speaker from the conference will be hosting a workshop at Oregon Tech this fall on Risk Based Assessment. For anyone interested in learning more about Cybersecurity, Oregon Tech offers Fundamentals of Information Security (MIS407-19758)  this Fall, on Thursday nights, with Professor Rosenberg, in Wilsonville.

Please go to “Web For Student” to sign up. Classes start September 26.

IEEE Rock Stars of Cyber-security Conference in Seattle

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016


What Do Google, Adobe, Intel Health and Life Sciences, and PayPal Know About Cyber-security That You Need to Know?

“Lots!  The attackers have gotten more sophisticated. No company or person is safe. The only way to protect your organization and your personal data in 2016 is with a strong Cyber-security solution. At Rock Stars of Cyber-security, we’ve brought together the real leaders in this critical technology – Google, Adobe, PayPal, Intel Health and Life Sciences, and others – to talk about the trends, cyber-security programs and advice on how you can develop real-world security solutions that work for your organization – and that don’t disrupt your operations.”
