RFID Lab Open House a Success

Posted by RFID Staff on Sep 23, 2016 7:02:42 PM

Auburn University RFID Lab Director Justin Patton and the entire RFID lab staff hosted an open house on September 23rd to showcase the lab to those interested. Nearly 40 people visited the lab during the two-hour event, with close to 20 people participating in the interactive lab tour.

"We had a really good turnout," said Patton. " I really wasn't sure what to expect, but the diversity of the group that came was a pleasant surprise. We had some kids with their parents, some university workers and also some retirees. It was a broad slice of the community and I thought it went really well. It seemed like people really wanted to take part in the tour and they all asked great questions."

Participants got to see various lab demonstrations, including some new interactive demos focused on football player tracking and ball tracking.

Below are some photos of the event. Stay tuned for more reaction from participants and students.
