Fourteen teams will have their designs on display including an autonomous lawnmower, a smart thermostat and an aerial home surveillance device. The 2014 IEEE Southeast Conference robotics championship team will also present their sharp-shooting entry at the open house.

Each design team consists of four to six seniors in electrical and computer engineering majors and a faculty advisor.
