ISyE students return victorious from Human Factors and Ergonomics Society meeting
Industrial and systems engineering students earned several honors at the Human Factors and Engineering Society 2012 annual meeting in October. Anthony McDonald won both the best student paper award and the Alphonse Chapanis award—the top honor for student submissions to the conference—with his paper, "Real-time detection of drowsiness-related lane departures using steering wheel angle." ISyE student Mahtab Ghazizadeh was a runner-up for the Chapanis award, based on her work using text-mining algorithms to understand trends in driver complaints concerning their cars. Ghazizadeh and student Shannon Roberts also were among five students nationally who were recognized as HFES student members with honors.
