Congratulations to Wisam Sabban for winning the EDN Innovation Award 2009 for the best application of embedded computers. His application was a solar powered unmanned airplane. To me, the design has many useful applications both in military and surveillance fields.
Wisam is an M.Sc. student who’s completing his degree in engineering design at Queensland University of Technology in Australia. He is from Saudi Arabia so congratulations also to all Saudis on this achievement.
