Secure Solutions is developing the Infiltrator, positioned as a stand-alone anti-theft device that will advance the combat of laptop theft. Our invention will consist of two microcontroller and transceiver based units: a theft detector mounted on the laptop itself and a remote control unit to be carried by the owner of the laptop. Once the detector senses any kind of motion, it sends a discrete signal (beep) to the Remote. The owner can then activate the alarm on the theft detector, thereby interrupting an attempted theft, or they can screen the signal and suppress the alarm, thereby avoiding false alarms. If the user does not reply to the discrete notification signal after a short period of time, the siren will be automatically activated.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440.  Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.  This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
