May graduate Michael Yeh '13 (M.S. electrical engineering) won fourth place in the Natcar competition May 20 at UC Davis. Yeh's autonomous race car, "Something Orange" came in behind two UC Berkeley teams and one UCLA team, respectively.

"Receiving rank No. 4 is a great accomplishment considering this is our first time participating, while other teams have several years of design experience," said Mostafa Shiva, chair and professor electrical engineering.

Yeh of Fullerton also lauded faculty mentor Jidong Huang, assistant professor of electrical engineering, for his support. Twenty teams, including two other CSUF teams, designed and built cars that raced on a track of turns, lanes changes and crossovers.
