This year’s topic, Let There Be a Beam!, asked students to explore beamforming, which, based on a spatially distributed array of sensors (antennas, microphones, hydrophones, etc.), can form a beam in space for enhanced signal reception or transmission, which has a wide range of applications, such as radar, sonar, teleconferencing, radio astronomy, seismology, medical diagnosis and treatment, human computer interface, and wireless communications, etc. Students were also welcome to submit “open topic” videos about subjects besides beamforming.
