Alien Solutions
The Wireless Real Estate System (WIRES) is a tool that enables an agent to showcase a property without having to be present at the location with the customer. WIRES allows the prospective buyer to view the property information and to receive directions to points of interest. WIRES has the ability to run in the most rural of locations without external power and in locations with standard electrical outlets.

Clever Innovations
AccuTrack
is a real-time vehicle monitoring solution that provides dynamically updated location information that's map-plotted. Additionally, the application logs vehicle sensor information and generates vehicle and route reports. By utilizing a web-application model, no client software must be installed, practically any web-enabled PC can use the system, and the system can be easily customized and integrated into existing websites.

Empire Technology
The Miniature Mobile Research Vehicle (Mini M.R.V.) is an autonomous robot that navigates to a destination given by the user. The Mini M.R.V. makes use of sonar ranging modules in order to avoid obstacles along the way. Onboard processing is done with the use of the MPC555 microcontoller. The robot is built on a custom designed chassis and is low power to maximize runtime.

Eye Tech Solutions
The main intent of EyeTech Solutions is to provide a precise automated remote tracking system for the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences at Texas A&M University. The development will be used to track the position of deer on private property owned by NASA. These deer will be equipped with radio transmitters that will send certain frequencies to three remote tracking stations.

Team Qubit
The TRAc System is a CAN based data acquisition system for race vehicles. The system reads the signals from various performance and engine related sensors on the factory CAN bus of the vehicle and this data is combined with data sampled from additional onboard sensors like a triaxial accelerometer, steering wheel position sensor, and color video camera. The sampled data is then displayed for the user in a synchronized Virtual Dashboard view for analysis by the vehicle tuner in order to improve the on-track performance of the vehicle.

Ringer Communications
The Automatic Wireless Phone Registration Project involves the configuration, integration, and testing of a infrastructure which has the capability of allowing a user with a dual-mode phone to automatically register to either a VoIP network or GSM cellular service provider. The automatic registration process is dependent on the user's location. When inside of a designated building, the user's phone will automatically register to an 802.11b VoIP network. However, when the user leaves the building premises the phone will register with a GSM cellular service provider.

RNS Innovations
The *Lane Navigating System* is designed to steer a vehicle along a simulated highway lane. Digital images of the road will be captured through a camera and analyzed using real-time computing to determine the necessary path the vehicle should follow and adjust the vehicle's steering accordingly. The system is a low-speed prototype that will provide proof of concept for a fully functional lane navigating system.

Texas Skill
Salt Acoustics
is derived from the need to measure the acoustical propagation properties of salt crystals for use in a larger project to detect neutrino collisions within the salt crystal. When a neutrino interacts with the salt molecule, it will knock an electron free from the molecule and create a shockwave. The shockwave would then be triangulated using an array of sensors and the exact magnitude of the collision could be calculated using measurements from each sensor. In order for the calculation to be correct, the acoustical propagation properties of the salt crystal must be known. It is the intent of team Texas Skill to design and implement a system to collect data pertaining to the acoustical properties of salt crystals and deliver the results of the system.
