Methane Sensor and Wild Fire Detection Robot Development

I plan to continue my ongoing research on wild fire sensing elements, specifically ones we can integrate with our existing tensegrity robots. Furthermore I plan to investigate the correlation between various light sources, range, and methane sensitivity, for non contact methane detection. And finally I plan do do some calibration and trace methane detection with existing sensor setups.


Message To Sponsor

I am extremely grateful for this opportunity. Having learned so much over the past year in B.E.S.T lab under Professor Agogino, I was ecstatic when I found out I would be able to continue my research over the summer. Furthermore, being able to take concepts I learned in my classes and applying them to real world applications, especially in something that greatly impacts California as a state fuels my ambition.
