IEEE Windsor Section


Past Events

IEEE Student Branch of University of Windsor hold  hands on event on Software Modeling in the Automotive Industry May 8th, 2015.

Presenter: Ian Anderson
Short Bio:
Ian Anderson is an alumnus of the University of Windsor, having received his Bachelor of Applied Science in 2004 and his Master of Applied Science in 2007, both in the field of Electrical Engineering. He has been employed with General Motors since 2007 and has worked on many aspects of the OnStar system. He currently works on the OnStar Software Tools Team developing test tools for the validation of pre-production OnStar hardware.

Abstract_Automotive telematics systems have revolutionized the way we communicate when we’re on the road and have given birth to “The Connected Car”. For almost 20 years, General Motors and OnStar have been pioneers in the automotive telematics space and have brought many key innovations to the industry, including a full suite of safety, security and connectivity services.

In this presentation, an overview of OnStar’s history and current service offerings were presented. The presenter also discussed at a high level the end-to-end architecture of the OnStar system, as well as the process of developing the system and the design and validation challenges that are inherent in that process.

IEEE Windsor section hold  hands on workshop on Spectrum analyzers sponsored by Canada ROHDE & SCHWARZ inc on May 6th, 2015.

IEEE Seminar – EMC Demo

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Room 1100, CEI

6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

WHAT IS EMC? Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) deals with the study of the interaction of electrical and electronic devices with their electromagnetic environment. All electronic instruments have the potential to emit electromagnetic fields. With the proliferation of electronic devices into everyday life – TVs, Washing machines, Electronic ignitions, Traffic lights, Mobile phones, ATMs, and Anti-theft tags to name a few – there is therefore a huge potential for devices to interfere with one another.

Recently re-activated IEEE student branch at the University of Windsor will host its first event on campus; we will be hosting Joanna Hill, an EMC engineer, from Hella Electronics Corporation. Lin Li from Rhode Schwarz will also be in attendance. They will guide us through what EMC is and how it is useful in the present day electronic systems.

This presentation discusses ways to view physical conductive structures in order to enable the engineer to see the antenna structures that result in EMC failures. You will learn to view physical structures not in relation to inches or meters, but in relation to wavelength. Magically, the witchcraft to EMC becomes understandable and compliance failures become far easier to fix.

It will not be just a presentation, but a practical demo will also be held.  The presenters will be setting up an antenna and network analyzer for demonstration purposes.

All Electrical Engineering students are encouraged to attend this seminar. We will also be discussing and the advantages of acquiring an IEEE student membership and the services provided by the IEEE.
