  • Sohn, Nicholas (2013)
    A theoretical model for measuring two-axis bending and longitudinal twisting of a beam is presented and implemented. Shifts in the two-dimensional far field transmission fringes generated by a four-core optical fiber are ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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. ...
  • Liang, Hongliang (Joe) (2013)
    Using two 16cm diameter coils tuned to resonant frequency in a strongly coupled regime, I investigate various properties of this system that affect power output such as frequency, load resistance, and distance between ...
  • 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 ...
  • Bielenberg, Ames (2013)
    This project aims to implement the technical infrastructure of a carsharing program. This is implemented using an embedded computer on-board the vehicle, and a server program running remotely.
  • 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 ...
  • Verhasselt, Eric (2013)
    The goal of this project is to design and build an environmentally beneficial prototype of a vehicle that operates efficiently on hydrogen fuel cells. The vehicle will be constructed to the specifications set forth so that ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Arnone, Luke (2014)
    Building on an open-source RepRap 3D printer platform, an extruder for porcelain clay paste is developed and tested. Using a syringe-based, air pressure-driven extruder, objects are fabricated at a 3.3 mm resolution and ...
  • Khaselev, Gabriel; Singleton, Jordan (2014)
    In this project, we have assembled an aircraft with some autonomous capabilities. The implications of autonomous flight are substantial. Without pilots, flight can be mechanically and deterministically optimized; this could ...
  • Knapp, Kyle; Ferchill, Price (2014)
    For this project, an affordable computer-vision based golf simulator was designed and constructed. The stroboscopic photography technique was implemented to capture high-speed images of golf balls being struck. The images ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Wondimu, Yeab (2014)
    One of the common uses of Bluetooth is to allow for the playback of audio from a phone or other music device out to Bluetooth speakers. However, for most Bluetooth devices, the range of this connection is limited to about ...
  • Kowalyshyn, Daniel (2014)
    My senior design project was to design, construct, and test an underwater glider. A glider operates by changing its buoyancy to descend and ascend, and then converts this vertical motion into horizontal motion by the ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
