Maryland Team Selected as Finalist in Wireless Innovation Project

A University of Maryland team led by Master's in Telecommunications Program Director Dr. Mehdi Kalantari was named one of eight finalists in Vodafone Americas Foundation Wireless Innovation Project.

The Maryland team, which included additional members Arash Takshi, Ali Shirazi, and Jim Chung, was selected from nearly 100 other applicants for their project, titled "A wireless patch sensor for protecting infrastructure systems," which received honorable mention in the competition. The team's technology protects major infrastructure against aging and structural malfunction using a wireless patch-like device called Active RF Test (ART) sensor (patent pending).

The Vodafone Americas Foundation designed the Wireless Innovation Project as a competition to promote innovation and increase implementation of wireless related technology to create a positive impact on society and help contribute to a better world. Learn more at: http://project.vodafone-us.com/.
