      ABSTRACT:
      Professor Burford Furman and his engineering students will present
      their work on designing a solar-powered Automated Transit Network
      (ATN). They will also demonstrate components of their soon to be
      operational 1:12 scale model. ATN is an idea that has been around
      since the 1950s and saw significant development in the 1960s through
      the early 1980s. There is renewed interest in ATN by municipalities to
      alleviate transportation problems that plague urban areas. The
      project has made remarkable progress resulting from active
      collaboration between industry and academia (i.e., the San Jose State
      University team under Prof. Furman).

      SPEAKER BIO:
      Prof. Burford (Buff) Furman has been on the faculty in the Department
      of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at San José State University
      since 1994. Prior to joining the SJSU faculty, Prof. Furman worked at
      IBM in San Jose in the development of disk drive actuators and spindle
      motors. He has also worked as a consultant in the optomechanical and
      laboratory automation industries. His areas of teaching and research
      are primarily focused in mechatronics, precision machine design,
      engineering measurements, and programming.
