Xiaolin Lu, an expert in the Internet of Things, will be the keynote speaker for the annual RIT ARM Developer Day conference at Rochester Institute of Technology. The Texas Instruments R&D manager will speak at noon on Friday, Jan. 27, in RIT’s University Gallery, located in James E. Booth Hall, Room 2765. Her presentation is titled, “A Semiconductor View of Intelligent I of T: Making the World Smarter and Coordinated.”
RIT ARM Developer Day is open to engineering, engineering technology, computing and science students from RIT and regional colleges and universities. Programming consists of demonstrations, exhibits and hands-on workshops for students and faculty by companies that manufacture, distribute and support ARM-based products, covering a variety of development platforms, environments and tools. ARM Ltd. designs and licenses ARM (advanced RISC machines) microprocessor architectures.
Registration is free and can be accessed online. Check-in begins at 9 a.m. and concurrent workshops begin at 10:30 a.m. in RIT’s Kate Gleason College of Engineering. Afternoon workshops resume at 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. A full list of the workshops can be found online.
The previous year’s event had 328 students and faculty from RIT, the University of Rochester and Monroe Community College registered. Similar registrations are expected this year, said Roy Melton, a faculty member in the computer engineering department of RIT’s Kate Gleason College of Engineering.
“Students get hands-on experience with the latest ARM-based embedded systems hardware,” said Melton. “As a follow up after the event, attendees are invited to participate in the RIT ARM Student Design Contest where they apply ARM technology to create or enhance an innovative, energy efficient and commercially viable system that can contribute to a better quality of life.”
Xiaolin Lu is recognized for her breakthrough work on embedded systems for the industrial internet, smart grids and ultra-low-power communications systems. As a Texas Instruments Fellow and research and development manager, she leads the company’s Kilby Innovation Technology Center in Dallas. Along with research initiatives and product development, she has received numerous awards for her diversity efforts from organizations such as the Society of Women Engineers and the National Women of Color organization.
ARM Developer Day is sponsored by RIT’s computer engineering, microelectronic and electrical engineering departments and the ARM University Program. For more information about the event, contact RIT_ARM_Day_2017@mail.rit.edu.

Imagine RIT Preview: Virtual Bugs
When the Seneca Park Zoo Society needed a way to create detailed 3D computer models of rare insects from Madagascar, they turned to RIT’s imaging science program for help. A multidisciplinary team of first-year students designed and built a new system to tackle the problem and will showcase the final product at the Imagine RIT festival.
