  • Wondimu, Yeab (2014)
    One of the common uses of Bluetooth is to allow for the playback of audio from a phone or other music device out to Bluetooth speakers. However, for most Bluetooth devices, the range of this connection is limited to about ...
  • Kayagil, Ahmet (2018)
    The purpose of this project is to design and construct a cob structure located in the Crum Woods. The structure would serve as a place of meditation and contemplation where the occupants could have the opportunity to ...
  • Gilchrist, Will; Wesley, Rachel (2019)
    Radiation commonly refers to the photons or subatomic particles that are expelled from atomic nuclei during decay or fission. It is an unavoidable fact of daily life; the body is bombarded with radiation every minute. ...
  • Kowalyshyn, Daniel (2014)
    My senior design project was to design, construct, and test an underwater glider. A glider operates by changing its buoyancy to descend and ascend, and then converts this vertical motion into horizontal motion by the ...
  • Fortunato, Chris (2014)
    This project creates a serial data link using a voice call between cell phones. This is done via the creation of a simple modem that uses On-Off Keying (OOK) as the modulation scheme, and an (8, 12) Hamming code for error ...
  • Eberle, Jimmy; Johnson, Matt (2018)
    With the widespread commercial availability ofXY table systems, the use of 3D printers and CNC machines that rely on the underlying machinery has expanded. This project aims to take the same base technology and use it ...
  • Ridder, Rose (2020)
    This project investigates the design and development of a prosthetic hand controlled using Electromyogram (EMG) signals of the forearm with haptic feedback provided to the arm based on pressure sensors on the prosthetic ...
  • Sammartino, Frank (2020)
    Evaporative downdraft cooling and radiative night sky cooling are two established passive methods for regulating the temperature of a building. Each method takes advantage of different chimney geometries: evaporative ...
  • Andrews, Dyami (2019)
    This project aims to design and test 3D printed propellers for drone applications. Through a self-developed iterative design process utilising MIT’s QMIL program, this project hope to increase the power transmission ...
  • Ganapati, Vidya; Robey, Alex (2018)
    Fourier Ptychographic Microscopy (FPM) is a computational imaging technique that iteratively stitches together low-resolution, variably-lit images in Fourier space to produce a high-dimensional image. Unlike conventional ...
  • Ye, Liu Qing (Selina) (2020)
    The purpose of this E90 project is to develop a conceptual design for an Octocopter personal transportation aircraft. Building on prior knowledge, the student gained relevant mechanical engineering design experience ...
  • Xu, David (2018)
    This project aims to design and implement a controller for the TurtleBot, available in the Swarthmore Robotics Lab, in order to enable the robot to move smoothly along complicated curved paths. A Smith Predictor, a ...
  • Jowdy, Jessica (2016)
    A brain-computer interface (BCI) is a system that provides direct communication between cognitive activity and external systems. This project involved creating a BCI that allowed participants to learn how to control virtual ...
  • Pekerti, Dakota (2016)
    For my E90 project, I synthesized a robust model that may be used to evaluate both the optimal performance of residential solar PV systems and the effect of different policies regarding solar energy within different cities ...
  • Dale, Terell (2020)
    This project trained and validated the Alexnet convolutional neural network algorithm using breast histopathology image data. The Alexnet neural network is one of many deep learning algorithms that has been utilized to ...
  • Sohn, Nicholas (2013)
    A theoretical model for measuring two-axis bending and longitudinal twisting of a beam is presented and implemented. Shifts in the two-dimensional far field transmission fringes generated by a four-core optical fiber are ...
  • Giordano, Emma (2018)
    For my senior design project, I looked to create a collapsible, folding outdoor structure that incorporates the mechanics of structural and mechanical engineering that implements the architectural and aesthetic elements ...
  • Knapp, Kyle; Ferchill, Price (2014)
    For this project, an affordable computer-vision based golf simulator was designed and constructed. The stroboscopic photography technique was implemented to capture high-speed images of golf balls being struck. The images ...
  • Samuelson, Katie (2014)
    A small-scale wave flume was designed and constructed for the Swarthmore College Engineering Department. Wave flumes are used in laboratories to conduct studies on fluid dynamics, wave theory, sediment transport, and ...
  • Zunin, Brandon (2020)
    Current affordable consumer health and fitness tracking devices provide calorie burn data which is woefully inaccurate (27-93% error). Further, using current methods, data can only be supplied for standardized, well-defined ...
