Gary Marshall, a master's student in mechanical engineering and engineering management, is on a mission to give back to those who protect us—firefighters. He founded EmergenTek in 2018 as a mechanical engineering undergrad, where he and his team developed a retrofittable system that automates fire truck ladder operations, reducing human error and increasing the chance to save more lives. Its handheld target acquisition device (called "The Fifth Man") captures the desired orientation, and a system of actuators move the joysticks that operate the ladder.
