The future of IM is in safe hands

22nd November 2016

Tuesday the 8th of November saw Tics host its first ever IM themed schools outreach event. 80 students from across South Yorkshire had the chance to see what the future of transport will look like and how they can get involved.

_mg_3301The day kicked off with Dr Yolande Herbath from the Transport Systems Catapult, talking through the future of Autonomous Vehicles.  Questions came thick and fast with students having to be stopped due to time constraints.
Dr Yolande was balled over by the amount and quality of questions and quoted “I was floored by the understanding and maturity of the response of such young people”

Students then undertook four activities to showcase the University and to highlight the skills needed for a future of Intelligent Travel. These included-

Virtual Reality – Practical Demo which included playing two interactive games.

Robotics – Demonstration of James Henshaws Brain-computer interfaces.

AeroSpace – Cardboard plane creation and Aerospace overview.

Virtual Reality – Lecture and interactive 3D projection wall demo._mg_3321

 

Tics wants to say a big thank you to every student for taking part and being role models for your school.

Another big thank you too – Gaia Innovation, Engineering’s Schools Outreach Team, Twin Karmakharm ,
Robert Stacey, James Henshaw, the guys from Aerospace and the Diamond Team.
