Rice engineering students create real-time 3-D radar system

Team D.R.A.D.I.S. designs concept for collision-avoidance system

(May 4, 2005)  A real-time 3-D radar system designed by Rice University engineering students as a concept for a next-generation collision-avoidance system for the auto industry captured the $5,000 top prize at Rice’s annual Engineering Design Showcase and could have wider applications in security screening and biomedical imaging.

The trio of students, known as Team D.R.A.D.I.S (dynamic radar and digital imaging system), became the first team in Rice history to win two of the annual showcase’s top three honors — the first-place Excellence in Engineering Award as well as a $3,000 innovation award.
