  • Pietrantonio, Lucas (2021)
    This project took a user centered design approach towards biker safety. It focused specifically on bike lights and examined what makes a 'safe' light. This process included 14 interviews with users, extensive background ...
  • Schauer, Adam (2020)
    This project yielded a functional Scanning Fabry-Perot Interferometer (SFPI), which is a critical device for measuring the wavelengths of propagating light and their respective optical power. Specifically, this SFPI model ...
  • Adams, Ellen (2021)
    A challenge in biology is imaging live biological samples in 3D to capture larger-scale dynamic processes. These include whole-organism processes like development and regeneration, which involve dramatic rearrangements ...
  • Boutelle, Chris (2014)
    This project seeks to develop a data logging showerhead. More specifically the project aims to create a water meter powered by the flow of water. The majority of the time was spent researching and investigating generator ...
  • Powell, Josh; Higashi, Yosuke; Ho, Matt (2018)
    We added self-driving capabilities to Emily Kan and Danielle Miller's go-kart from their 2006 E90 project, further modified by Michael Chen and Chris Grasberger in 2017. We were able to achieve our main project goals ...
  • Gilchrist-Scott, Andrew; Taylor, Andrew (2016)
    The problem of automatically identifying humans in a space, tracking their motions, and predicting future locations in real time has not been attempted in the current literature. We propose a system to do this, by establishing ...
  • Abitino, Angelina; Chung, Won (2018)
    Given the increase in massive datasets and powerful data mining techniques in combination with advanced computational power, the use of artificial intelligence in order to improve our everyday lives is currently being ...
  • Alto, Cosmo (2016)
    A melodic audio signal harmonization algorithm was designed in MATLAB, implemented in C code, then run on a C2000 Piccolo F28069 Control Card and Experimenter's Kit from Texas Instruments. Using four output buffers, the ...
  • Ryan, Gabriel; Roelofs, Rebecca (2013)
    In mobile robot navigation, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) involves building a map of an unknown environment and determining the robot's position in the map at the same time. Several variations of the SLAM ...
  • Rubin, George (2021)
    Radar is an electrical system which transmits radio waves (20 kHz to 300 GHz) toward a target region and observes reflections of those waves from objects in that region. Based on the structure of the received signal, ...
  • Ruben, Cody (2014)
    The main result of this project was the design of an electrical system that powers Swarthmore's baseball scoreboard using solar energy. This energy is harvested through 2 Kyocera KC130TM photovoltaic panels. These are ...
  • Rosenblatt, Anne; Aaron, Nicole (2014)
    Our goal was to create a solar tracking system that eliminated the need for manual adjustments and did not continuously rotate without regard for weather conditions. We decided we would accomplish this by programming a ...
  • Clark, Conor; Heppe, Madison (2016)
    St. Josephs University (SJU) currently has outdoor tennis courts that can only be used in daylight hours and good weather. SJU's Head Tennis Coach Ian Crookenden and President's Executive Council Member Bill Ringle have ...
  • Lee, Ethan (2016)
    This report contains the structural design and analysis of three different steel frame 'pencil-thin' skyscrapers that would be hypothetically located in New York, NY. This project aims to compare different structural systems ...
  • Nathan, Alyssa (2021)
    A digit al model of the Ware Pool Roof on the campus of Swarthmore College was designed in AN SYS finite element software. Two MATLAB codes were created to generate the geometry of the shell from mathematical equations ...
  • Nerurkar, Arijit; Wilson, Taylor (2019)
    The purpose of this project was to design a person counter to track people in the carriage of a subway train, and relay this information to commuters via wireless communication. Major accomplishments include use of IR ...
  • Thompson, Hannah; Hilburn, Rachel (2019)
    There have been many successful installations in the recent past of sensor based projects to assess and communicate the availability of different spaces. One example of this is the growing use of ultrasonic sensors and ...
  • Macfarland, Neil; Weinthal, Noah (2015)
    The concept of a 'racing line' is an integral part of competitive racecar driving. While many drivers develop a sense for this optimal path around a racecourse intuitively, the physics governing basic vehicle dynamics ...
  • Alventosa, Luke; White, Brady (2015)
    In this study, we design and construct a solid fuel rocket that utilizes an ammonium perchlorate composite propellant. We also design and simulate an air augmented rocket, an example of a combined cycle. The results show ...
  • Curtis, Daniel (2021)
    With the effects of anthropogenic climate change looming over the future, the development of new methods of renewable energy generation has become incredibly important for the future of humanity. Ground- Gen Airborne ...
