        • ASME Student Design Competition: Building the Best Drone

          Eighteen teams of young engineers-in-training competed for the right to call themselves world champion drone builders at the 22nd annual ASME Student Design Competition (SDC) finals today at the International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exhibition at Montreal's Palais des Congrès. The international slate of teams – including squads from universities in China, France, India, Peru, Turkey and across the United States – brought their talent and training to bear on one of today's hottest mechanical technologies: Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or as they are better known, drones. Each team had designed and built a powerful, maneuverable, remotely-piloted drone to fly in this year's competition. Today, drones are one of the world's hottest technologies. Though an industry still in its infancy, drones and their potential have captured the imaginations of leaders in business, government and academia. They promise new solutions for difficult, dangerous or time-critical tasks in industries from agriculture to emergency medicine, from energy to journalism and beyond. The SDC Challenge for 2014: design and build an original drone, pilot it successfully through a series of high and low obstacles, complete a targeted payload drop, and return to the start -- in one piece. Student engineer Oscar Wall Arias of the Instituto Tecnológico de Ciudad Juarez (Mexico) exemplified not only the technical excellence of the assembled teams but their humane ambition. "We're engineers," Arias said. "We're here to do good, to build, to make human lives better. What a great thing to be here with all these great teams today." At day's end, the University of North Dakota team took first place with their massive 78.4lb. gleaming steel-and-aluminum machine. Second place went to the nine-man, black-clad squad from California Polytechnic State University. Third place was taken by the "Airwolf," the drone flown by the "Wolfpack" team from North Carolina State University. Every year, the SDC tests the mettle of young engineering students through a design-and-build challenge based on latest developments in industry and academia. A committee of ASME members led by Dr. Tim Hodges, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Virginia Military Institute, works throughout the year to bring the SDC to life. "Students get to use their engineering knowledge to design and build a vehicle, and then they get to compare their work with that of their peers," Hodges said. "It gives them lots of confidence to work into the future and toward employment in the real world. And they have done such a wonderful job." Wearing protective glasses and clutching clipboards, Hodges and his colleagues also served as judges of the competition. And a great day of competition it was: motors roared; assembled crowds hooted, laughed, and cheered; multicolored, multi-propellered flying robots swooped and zoomed high, loud and sometimes dangerously close to the competitors and judges in the arena. Judges' papers were repeatedly blown away by the windy force of the machines in flight. And though many succeeded, several entries crashed and shattered, with carbon-fiber blades and aluminum struts flying in all directions. ASME President J. Robert Sims was deeply impressed by what he saw. "From looking at the exhibits and talking to the students, their dedication and expertise is just amazing," Sims said. "These folks are going to do well in the future in engineering. It's just a very impressive group – all of them. Whether they're winners or not in the finals, they are incredible individuals." Said Scott McDaniel of North Dakota's winning team: "We drove two full days to get here from North Dakota – I'm so glad we did!"

              In the field with the Geronimo Hotshots, an elite crew of Apache firefighters who battle the biggest wildfires in the nation, and featuring stunning GoPro footage shot by the crew. Home for the Hotshots is on the San Carlos Apache Reservation in southeastern Arizona, where unemployment is high, and firefighting jobs are one of the few stable opportunities for work. "Your mom, your dad, your uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins—one of them probably fights fire," says Squad Leader Jeff Belvado. The Geronimo Hotshots are one of seven Native American hotshot crews in the United States who are sponsored by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
