The eStadium VIP team designs and deploys wireless networks and web application that
give football fans on-demand access to video clips of plays,
real-time game stats, and other game-related applications. They use their
3G phones or PDAs to access this multimedia content via a cellular network
or the wireless network in the stadium.

Join the VIP Program Today!!
In the Vertically-Integrated Projects (VIP) Program, you earn one or two credits
per semester as you learn to design, build and deploy real systems. You will be part
of and can eventually lead a team that functions just like the ones in industry.
Faculty, staff and graudate students will teach you what you need to know to succeed.
Four VIP teams are seeking additional students for the Fall 2010 semester.
Click on the name of the team for more details about it to see if you would like to join it.
Computational Structural Biology Team:
Develop software and web-based tutorials to facilitate the understanding of basic principles
of macromolecular simulations and their application to research problems in structural biology.
Distributed Workforce Team:
Design and test multimedia
systems, web-based applications, and human-computer interfaces to support the distributed
design and research teams that are the future of the global engineering workforce.
Design, develop, and deploy mobile wireless applications for the use of visitors, students,
faculty, staff and administrtaors on the Georgia Tech ATL campus.
Design and create devices, systems, processes and policies for both
secure, authenticated voting procedures and
citizen participation in government.
Design, deploy and test
wireless and sensor networks to gather and deliver game and other information for
fans and safety personnel in the stadium on gameday.
Intelligent Tutoring System Team:
Design, test and use systems to enhance student learning in Tech courses by applying techniques that include
video and data mining, artificial intelligence, machine learning,
and human-computer interfaces.
Video and Image Annotation Team:
Develop interactive systems that enable users to manage exploding multi-media content intelligently
by automatically generating verbal descriptions of the contents of video and image files.

CS juniors or nongraduating seniors who participate
in VIP for two semesters for a total of 3 or 4 credits
can count it toward their Senior Capstone requirement in place of CS 4911 or CS 4980. Three
or more additional VIP credits can be counted as free electives.
ECE students can count three credits at the junior or senior level as technical electives if
they have already completed three or more credits of VIP at the sophomore and/or junior levels
as free electives.
Non-ECE engineering majors may receive elective credit for their participation in VIP; check
with your major school.
Any VIP team that you join will be:
Vertically-integrated – It will have a
mix of sophomores through seniors each semester. As seniors graduate, new sophomores
are added and returning students move up in responsibility.
Long-term – You can participate in a team for
up to six semesters, earning one or two credits each semester.
Large-scale – Your team will have from 5 to 15
students, depending on how much work needs to be done.
Multidisciplinary – Real projects require
expertise from many disciplines. Students from each discipline that is needed
will be working with you.
The continuity, technical depth, and disciplinary breadth of your VIP team
will enable you and your teammates to complete real projects that will
be deployed and used.
You will gain in-depth knowledge of the technology covered by the
team, learn how to contribute to and lead large projects, and work
closely with faculty, staff, and graduate students.
