Posted: August 15, 2012

A team of ASU engineering students took 2nd place in the Intel Cup Embedded Systems Design Contest in Shanghai, China. The competition drew 160 student teams from 12 countries.

Team AdSkip designed a device that detects upcoming commercials on TV and then automatically switches to another channel preselected by the viewer until the commercial break is over.

The team was the first one from ASU to compete in the contest and was the only team from the U.S. to compete this year.
