  • 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 ...
  • Nguyen, Timothy; Shah, Neeraj (2019)
    For our final engineering project, we wanted to explore a quality assurance problem related to networking. We successfully built a heat-map that intuitively displays the strength of wireless signals. The project has two ...
  • Hernandez, Jesus; Luciano, Nicholas (2019)
    Robotics is revolutionizing the effectiveness and capabilities of limb prostheses. They vary widely in their level of sophistication, with the myoelectric kind at the highest level. These prostheses use EMG signals to ...
  • Cochrane, Caleb (2015)
    Global climate change is one of the most impressive and daunting challenges of the 21st century, that must ultimately be dealt with by changing the way people consume natural resources. Many people are committed to doing ...
  • Jansen, Andrew; Yeung, Chung Yuen Brandon (2018)
    The purpose of this project was to modify the Swarthmore fuel-cell vehicle in preparation for the 2018 Americas Shell Eco-Marathon. The Shell Eco-Marathon challenges high school and college students to design fuel efficient ...
  • He, Keliang; Martin, Elizabeth (2013)
    In recent years, CHOMP has found many applications in robotics research, as it combines motion planning and optimization. Its flexibility in initial trajectory enables it to solve many complex problems without pre- or ...
  • Jones, Nia E. (2014)
    This project examines the practices of wastewater treatment, specifically decentralized wastewater treatment. The primary objective was to design an onsite wastewater treatment plant for a subarea on the campus of Swarthmore ...
  • Lehman-Borer, Ryerson (2016)
    In an age where computing power is cheaper than ever and memory is abundantly available, many forms of media are being converted to digital formats so they can be preserved, edited, shared, and explored more easily than ...
