  • 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 ...
  • Abel, Imoleayo (2014)
    While personal jet packs may not be practical, an electromechanically-assisted set of wings may be. No modern heavier-than-air craft flaps its wings; conversely, no bird, bat or insects relies upon fixed wings. Bio-mimicry ...
  • 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 ...
  • Mubvuma, Tinashe Harry (2014)
    Affordable Braille actuators were designed, STL printed and tested for functionality, for the purpose of creating full page refreshable Braille display and stand-alone Braille devices such as calculators. Mechanical actuators ...
  • Donahey, Rémy (2014)
    In response to community concerns regarding increased traffic noise resulting from the 1-95 / Scudder Falls Bridge Improvement Project, this project modeled various noise barrier configurations using the Traffic Noise Model ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Wu, Sizhao (Bill) (2015)
    A bench-scale shake table was designed and constructed for the Swarthmore College Engineering Department. The frame of the shake table was made of Unistrut. It's powered by a motor with a complete built-in servo control ...
  • Liu, Ruisen (Eric) (2015)
    This project explores the design and implementation of walking patterns for humanoid robots. This report presents a brief introduction to human walking and the exploration of two walking pattern generation techniques for ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Emery, Christine (2016)
    In this E90, I propose a novel laparoscopic grasper design that is intended to reduce the risk of inadvertent tissue damage during surgery. The small, V-shaped jaws of traditional laparoscopic graspers apply high and uneven ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
