Research Poster Content Introduction/Background/Problem ...

  1. 1. Research Poster Content <ul><li>Introduction/Background/Problem/Research Area – something to set the stage and capture the major issue quickly – no abstract </li></ul><ul><li>Research Objectives : Can be stated as questions – Make this very easy to find - </li></ul><ul><li>Research methods or techniques : Use figures and tables to illustrate research design when possible, flow charts to summarize causal relationships, include statistical methods/ techniques </li></ul>
  2. 2. Research Poster Content <ul><li>Results/Findings : Be clear how research question/objectives were addressed. Include evidence/analysis and use tables/graphs to show how data supports or doesn ’ t support the research questions or hypothesis. OR </li></ul><ul><li>Expected Results: Based on previous research and your own approach, what do you expect </li></ul><ul><li>Next Steps/Future Research: </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusions : briefly restate the findings and relevance to context or future research. </li></ul><ul><li>Acknowledgments : Lab, funding, disclosures if appropriate </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  3. 3. Research Poster Tips <ul><li>. </li></ul><ul><li>The 3 blue swatches outlined here tend to look purple when printed, even if they look blue on computer monitor.Certain greens and yellows may have a gray cast to them. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Research Poster Tips <ul><li>For a blue background in PP, it is recommended to use one of the blue swatches outlined in red. These print very closely to what appears on your computer monitor </li></ul>

  6. 6. Smart Parking with Integrated Technology Borja Burgos-Galindo, Jose Vidal, PhD Mentor: Ryan Pirkl / Faculty Advisor: Dr. Greg Durgin <ul><li>Current Issues </li></ul><ul><li>Entry and exit from a permitted parking area </li></ul><ul><li>Locating a vacant parking space </li></ul><ul><li>Remembering the location of a vehicle </li></ul>RFID Technology Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is an automatic identification method, uses RFID tags to store and retrieve data. Smart Parking will employ RFID technology by Benefits <ul><li>Future Work </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation of parking guidance system </li></ul><ul><li>Creation and integration of a system for locating a parked vehicle </li></ul><ul><li>Development of a full-scale model </li></ul><ul><li>Confirmation of Smart Parking’s compatibility with existing parking areas </li></ul>. Introduction There are two things that most individuals hate about driving: traffic and parking. Smart Parking is a multi-faceted approach that uses integrated technologies, such as RFID and “presence” sensors, to enhance the driver’s parking experience. <ul><li>Equipment </li></ul><ul><li>WJ MPR6000 RFID Reader (PCMCI Card) </li></ul><ul><li>915 MHz Antenna </li></ul><ul><li>Gen2 RFID Tags </li></ul>Figure 1. MPR6000 and sample Gen2 RFID tags. “ Presence” Sensors “ Presence” sensors refer to a type of sensor that will visually identify occupied spaces and unoccupied spaces. Figure 2.

Demonstration of LED operation. <ul><ul><li>Equipping each vehicle with personal passive RFID tag </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Allowing entry and exit to vehicles with tags found in the system’s database </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Logging statistical data of lot usage </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Create optical connection using IR LEDs; green LED signifies vacant space </li></ul><ul><li>Vehicle breaks optical connection; Red LED signifies occupied space </li></ul><ul><li>RFID Automation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Quicker entry and exit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Card-less operation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Upgradeable features </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Statistical analysis will lead to optimization and reduced operation cost </li></ul><ul><li>“ Presence” sensors will enable efficient parking, reducing wasted time and traffic </li></ul>
  7. 7. Title of Several Capitalized Words Author One, Author Two, Author Three, Mentor’s Author Four, Faculty Advisor Introduction You may NOT change the size of the poster (22 x 36 inches). You may NOT change the position or size of the logos: IOS in upper left and GT-Intel in lower right. The title must go on top and there should be three to four columns of text. The color, the font and the content is up to you. In your intro, you should motivate your research and explain your goals. Background The background section should talk about research other people have done in this area. Be brief and bullet some of the points. The visual background of the poster should not hinder reading the text and images in the foreground. I prefer a white background. <ul><li>Methods </li></ul><ul><li>Talk about what you did in an outline: </li></ul><ul><li>method 1 </li></ul><ul><li>method 2 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>method 2.1 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>method 2.2 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>method 3 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>… </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Results </li></ul><ul><li>Talk about what you got in an outline: </li></ul><ul><li>result 1 </li></ul><ul><li>result 2 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>result 2.1 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>result 2.2 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>result 3 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>… </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Conclusions </li></ul><ul><li>Talk about what you learned in an outline: </li></ul><ul><li>conclusion 1 </li></ul><ul><li>conclusion 2 </li></ul><ul><li>conclusion 3 </li></ul><ul><li>… </li></ul>Future Work Talk about what you will do next. In general, your poster should be neat. All figures, borders and text should be aligned. Good luck!
