Ferguson Control Systems, LLC sponsored an University of Houston (UH) Cullen College of Engineering Senior Design Team to create an autonomous advertising robot referred to as the Shasta Advertiser Mobile Robot (SAMR). The intent was to mentor and prepare senior Electrical and Computer Engineering students for their professional career with a real world design effort. The team successfully created a 1st generation 6 foot 3 inch robot and gained valuable experience. The successful UH team members were Jaime Juarez, Matt Anguiano, Matt Metoyer, and Brandon Kain. Along the journey, Adi Avishalom joined the team and is now a FCS employee.
Ferguson Control Systems, LLC will continue to sponsor, mentor, and grow senior UH Engineering students every year.
