ESO and Baccalaureate students create vehicles and security applications for the Teleco Technology Competition (10/05/2017)

Secondary and High School students have competed this morning in the Technological Competition of Teleco, organized each year by the School of Telecommunication of the Polytechnic University of Cartagena (UPCT).

The common theme of projects has been safety in critical scenarios, such as natural disasters or accidents of elderly people with mobility problems.

The winners of the competition have been 2nd grade students from IES Juan Carlos I of Murcia who have designed, programmed and manufactured in its entirety, including control plates, a radio control car to overcome obstacles and adverse situations such as those occurring in Disaster scenarios, in which this type of vehicles is used for inspection work.

"Completely waterproofed, the pieces were made with a 3D printer," said Joaquín Caballero, Tomás Montalvo, Emilio Domínguez and Gustavo Villaexcusa, who are already planning to study different engineering projects next year.

Second, students from 1st grade ESO Severo Ochoa Los Garres have created a mobile application to save lives in the event of natural disasters.

"It warns you of tsunamis with information about safe places and activates a Wi-Fi sweep so that rescuers can quickly find you if you are trapped in the aftermath of an earthquake," explains Rodrigo Marmol, a young man passionate about programming that has teamed with Abel Gambín, Paula Martínez and Desirée Coll.

Sharing the third place, three students from the 1st year of Higher Research San Isidoro IES Cartagena have developed a fall detector for dependent people, with sensors in a belt that activates an alarm that connects to the mobile phone through bluetooth to send messages To the chosen contacts unless the user deactivates it.

"All materials are low cost, worth less than 30 euros," said Omar Bachiré, Guillermo Fernandez and Fihong Chen.

With a similar score, 2nd-year students from the IES Domingo Valdivieso de Mazarrón have presented three different applications, with instructions for the use of gymnasium machines using QR codes, hiking maps and emergency telephone numbers and tourist information about their locality.
