Team Moses of CIT University Wins 3rd Place in the Growing City Solutions Category of the Compass Education Robotics Cup
Fritz Laurence Villacorta (BSCS-3) and Chiang Shan Chang (BSIT-4) won third place with their creation dubbed as Project Moses in the Growing City Solutions Category of the recently-concluded Robotics Cup by Compass Education last November 11 and 12 at SM Seaside.
As per a post from Accenture in the Philippines page which featured our students, Project Moses is a web-based robotic monitoring and warning system for rivers located in urbanized areas which are highly susceptible to overflow during rains and landslides. The public, especially the people living in the city, will have access to the website so that they can be updated with regards to the conditions of the river in case of bad weather. Most importantly, this project can provide the local government of the city real-time data regarding the river’s water level. This prototype is based on Arduino and uses mobile connectivity to the internet to update the water levels shown in the website.
CIT University believes that engaging students in Robotics do not only train them in the technical aspect. We also develop character and values like passion, creativity, and social responsibility that is highly important to inculcate in our youth. When we combine our students’ ingenuity with cutting-edge technology, they can surely contribute to the progress of our school, our community, and even our country.
