Wichita State seniors partner with McConnell’s Innovation Lab

Two Wichita State University seniors have partnered with the McConnell Air Force Base Innovation Lab to help fight COVID-19 – by using robotics. Computer science majors Lucy Hoang and Lydia Melles are creating an autonomous robot that uses ultraviolet C-lights (UVC) to clean grocery stores.

The project is part of a senior design class taught by Andy Stallard, WSU College of Engineering Senior Design Experience lecturer and director.
