University Challenge — CARM Proof of Concept

CARM Safety Foundation is driving the University Challenge program to inspire and guide students who will demonstrate key aspects of a new physical safety system. CARM stands for computer-aided risk management. Sensors are linked with computing nodes via a network. Early signs of potential threats are detected, and decisions made to take action before tragedy occurs; NASA has been doing this for decades.

Students Can Get Involved in Real-World Project, and may earn university credit:
• Connect safety devices and threat detectors so they inter-operate as a cohesive system
• Program compute nodes to analyze data from sensors and predict threats
• Produce videos of system operation
• Promote the accomplishments of technical teams to the public

This challenge is all about collaboration. The work is real-world and will allow students to demonstrate their value to a larger team.

The resulting demonstration will show the public how technology can make the world safer.
