Student Team: Kevin Schalk, Kaitlyn Helsing, Jonathan May
Advisor: Bob Conley
Sponsoring Organization: KEEN
Liaison: Bob Conley

Project Background:

For over a hundred years electric power has been exclusively distributed with wires.  Our team has discovered an efficient method that eliminates the wires by transmitting power through the air.

Project Goal:

Efficiently and safely transmit power without wires.

Project Deliverables:

The intermediate deliverable is a prototype that will transmit enough power to light a flashlight bulb over a distance of 100 feet with an efficiency greater than 40%.  The end project deliverable is a high power prototype intended to transmit 100W over the same distance with the same efficiency.

Project Management and Communication Expectations:

Our team will meet once a month during the summer preceding the academic year to share research conducted.  During the school year out team will meet once a week to build the prototypes.
