  • 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 ...

    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 ...
  • Mongno, Sara; Peipher, Sophie (2020)
    Nonpoint source pollution is a major concern for the health of the water bodies throughout the US. By modeling the impact institutions are having on these water bodies due to runoff we can better identify where pollution ...
  • Dahmm, Hayden Wallace (2015-05)
    Distributed Generation (DG) will be an important feature of carbon mitigation policies, and understanding the limitations on generator investment will help form more effective policy options. This study explored the tradeoff ...
  • Kim, Hyeongmin; Meyers-Lee, Gabriel (2019)
    Functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) uses electromagnetic radiation in the infrared and near infrared spectrum to image the blood flow and metabolic activity of the brain in real-time. Multiple light sources and ...
  • Studier, Greta (2019)
    I worked remotely for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for my semester-long senior engineering design project, designing a parking lot storage solution for sample tubes on a fetch rover as part of JPL’s Mars Sample ...
  • Candey, Scott (2020)
    A simple phoswitch gamma ray detector has been designed and simulated to demonstrate a possible implementation using small blocks of various common gamma ray scintillators. This project is intended in part to prove the ...
  • Nogueira, Natasha Faria (2018)
  • Wang, Ke (Will); Gu, Jerry (2019)
    Continuous body composition analysis provides valuable information to better monitor and manage the well-being of patients with congestive heart failure (CHF), a chronic disease that primarily affects people of old age. ...
  • Shaban, Maher (2013)
    This report presents the theory behind pulse oximetry - the measurement of oxygen saturation levels via the interaction of light and hemoglobin - while investigating the design of contemporary pulse oximeters as well. ...
  • Zhai, Xignda (2013)
    My goal is to reproduce the functionalities of the system and demonstrate the simple concepts behind it. However, it is not my intention to mimic the two groupsets in every detail and completely replace them. The amount ...
  • Taschuk, Greg (2013)
    The ability to interact with computers through methods other than keyboard and mouse has begun to shape the modern computing experience. Gesture Recognition shows significant promise as it offers an intuitive and personal ...
