Recently third year BEng Electronics and second year BSc Internet of Things students demonstrated their final projects to transition year students from CBS Mount Sion.

“The demonstration included manual drive, autonomous operation, vision systems, real time sound mapping and of course battles,” explains lecturer in robotics Jason Berry.
