  • Xiao, Terrence (2020)
    The primary subject explored by this project was aquaponics. Aquaponics’ potential as a form of sustainable agriculture largely stems from its efficient nutrient cycling, but the same ecological properties make aquaponics ...
  • Nahmias, David (2014)
    The desire to control and manipulate computers and human device interfaces (HDI) in more natural ways has been sought after for some time. This Engineering 090 project looks use hand movements and motions to control an ...
  • Borris, Mercer; Brakeman, Sara (2016)
    In high­-rise apartment buildings, there are many pipes as part of the supply and drainage system for potable water. Leaks in these pipes result in a waste of usable water and money, especially when they are internal. In ...
  • Sullivan, Danielle; Bailey, Eliza (2014)
    To meet the demands of the real-time video and image processing (VIP) applications, Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) is considered as one of the ideal system architectures for implementation. It is because the customizable ...
  • Jensen, Erik; Lee, Tony (2015)
    Transportation and electricity sectors account for over 67% of Swarthmore College's greenhouse gas emissions in 2013. As the College explores ways to reduce its carbon footprint, this project examines how photovoltaics and ...
  • Prymak, Eugene (2013)
    A model is presented for the production of switchgrass and its conversion to bio-oil using fast pyrolysis. Switchgrass is a leading energy crop because of its high biomass yield in a variety of soil conditions. For ...
  • Friske, Spencer (2016)
    Given life's scarcity of resources, decision-making is an omnipresent component of both society and the human experience. Individually, we routinely face choices that range from mundane to life changing. As a society, we ...
  • Asiedu, Kwame (2018)
    Fluorescence microscopy is an extremely useful biological tool used to detect specific molecules within a specimen. Fluorescence microscopy is widely used for the purpose of cancer detection. When trying to locate cancerous ...
  • Ong, Kyrstyn (2018)
    The objective of this project was to design a fuzzy logic balance controller for a double inverted pendulum using the Fuzzy Logic Toolbox in MATLAB Simulink. Specifically, the fuzzy logic controller was designed in order ...
  • Yu, Tiffany; Perez-Putnam, Gabriel (2018)
    This project aims to automate the control of window shades through a unit comprised of a microcontroller, a motor, sensors and necessary connections. The unit's general function is controlled by a program that adjusts ...
  • McGinn, Christine (2016)
    This project investigated the use of genetic algorithms to design several types of analog filters. This process involved "mathematically describing" the correct filter behavior in the fitness function so that the genetic ...
  • Cheney, Jordan; Ancona, Davis (2014)
    Today, all computers are interfaced through a one or two dimensional input controller such as a keyboard, mouse, or touch screen. This, however, is not how humans normally perceive and interact with their environment. Thus, ...
  • Dulin, Isaac (2016)
    The ability to map a previously unseen environment is often considered a prerequisite for any truly autonomous robot. Since sensors and motors are often imprecise, it is necessary to find a way to identify and correct error ...
  • Ridder, Rose (2020)
    This paper investigates the uses of haptic feedback for training and development purposes through a literature review spanning research and development between 1928 and 2020. The main focuses are on applications of haptic ...
  • Bahmane, Mariam (2019)
    This E90 project aims to identify and select the four most representative frequencies that identify the presence of biomarkers in biological tissues. Compressed sensing and deep learning were used as systematic processes ...
  • Pitts, Caroline (2016)
    Gretchen is a mobile Fetch robot with a seven degree of freedom manipulator. Her current software generally creates motion plans that add a great deal of unnecessary movement to the solution path. This is a significant ...
  • Watson, Brendan (2019)
    The StormWISE model was created to evaluate optimal stormwater management strategies at the watershed level. The model solves for optimal green infrastructure implementation based on a desired annual CSO reduction level. ...
  • Chang, David; Kim, Michelle (2020)
    During finals season, the often vacant libraries filled to the brim with anxious and motivated students. In these universally busy weeks at Swarthmore, students often cannot find a spot in their library of choice. To ...
  • Camacho, Kayla (2019)
    Biofuels have received considerable attention as a more sustainable solution for heating applications. Used vegetable oil, normally considered a waste product, has been suggested as a possible candidate. Herein we perform ...
  • Torres, Hannah (2020)
    Biofuels have received considerable attention as a more sustainable solution for transportation fuels. Used vegetable oil, normally considered a waste product, has been suggested as a possible candidate. Herein we perform ...
