ChE Junior Wins Automation Contest

The OSU Automation Society hosted Automation Day in Stillwater, and one event included a contest in which students created the rules to manage a traffic light at an intersection.  The rules were implemented in a simulator, of several traffic conditions, which provided indications of total wasted time of stopped cars and aggravation of the drivers.  

A team of two juniors won the contest.  A team of graduate students in Industrial Engineering placed second, and a team of graduate students from Mechanical Engineering placed third.
