Menzies Chen, Bioengineering alumnus and researcher in the Fletcher Lab, has been awarded one of five UC Berkeley Sustainability Awards.
The honor was presented by Chancellor Birgeneau at the second annual UC Berkeley Sustainability Summit on April 28th.
Chen received the award for his work with Parking and Transportation Services on a real-time bus tracking system for the campus shuttles. The system uses GPS locators to track the actual location of campus shuttle buses and display the results on a website, http://bus.berkeley.edu. Future plans include having bus locations communicated through instant messaging and cellphone text messaging.
