UC San Diego Students Demonstrate Smart Camera Trap at New Engineering Competition

Camera Trap


Members of the Sentinel camera trap team are ECE undergraduates: Kyle Johnson, Chris Ward, Riley Yeakle and Perry Naughton who competed for the Cornell Cup USA, presented by Intel.

Forget about building a better mouse trap. Riley Yeakle and his teammates have come up with a better camera trap, and they faced off with finalists from around the country when they unveiled working prototypes of their visions for embedded systems at a new, national engineering student competition. While falling short of the top three, the UC San Diego as well as UC Berkeley teams were awarded Honorable Mentions for their innovations.
