Chip Shot: University of Pennsylvania Team Wins Cornell Cup for Innovative Titan Arm Project

Like something out of the new “Iron Man 3” movie, the University of Pennsylvania engineering team’s Titan Arm is a wireless and ergonomic exoskeleton system designed to provide augmented strength. The Titan Arm was developed using Intel® Atom™ processor technology and is intended for rehabilitation and therapeutic applications, as well as physically intensive occupations requiring heavy lifting. The team took first place and won $10,000 at the second annual Cornell Cup USA presented by Intel, an embedded engineering competition that challenges student design teams from universities across America to develop innovative prototypes that address real-world issues.
