A student team from Georgia Tech is competing this week in the Microsoft Imagine Cup 2017 in Seattle, Wash.

Team Oculogx is one of 12 U.S. finalists competing to be among six teams advancing to the World Finals for a chance at winning $100,000.

The team includes three students from the College of Computing – third-year Computer Science students Cheng Hann, Sarthak Srinivas, and Wenqi Xian. Second-year Industrial and Systems Engineering student Charu Thomas founded the startup company behind the team.

Microsoft’s Imagine Cup is a global student tech competition that encourages students to use their creativity, passion, and knowledge of technology to create applications that meet real-world challenges with innovative solutions.

For the challenge, Team Oculogx introduces PickAR, a mixed reality app that melds Microsoft’s HoloLens and Azure MySQL database to improve order picking in warehouses. The app integrates waypoint navigation, barcode scanning, and direct communication with warehouse management software systems to improve overall efficiency.

Highlights from this week’s U.S. Imagine Cup student competition are going to be broadcast on April 27 as a virtual event hosted by Sabrina from YouTube's Nerdy & Quirky
