A four-person team of students at the University of Houston’s Cullen College of Engineering has won a pair of awards for their project – a soft robotics exoskeleton – after presenting at the Excellence in Senior Design competition, held virtually by the University of Texas at Dallas on May 21.
Competing against 12 other universities and colleges, the TrueStep project by Rukaiya Batliwala, Arnold Emeh, Tanvi Parikh and Anthony Pham took first place in the category of Texas Instrument’s Best Engineering Design Award. The group also received the Out of the Box Award. Batliwala, Pham and Parikh are Mechanical Engineering students, and Emeh is an Electrical Engineering student.
