  • 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 ...
  • Bowen, Connie; Karol, Jess (2016)
    Controlled environment agriculture (CEA) is any system that alters the environment in which crops are grown. This environmental intervention can range from low-tech plastic crop covers to high-tech computer controlled ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Jowdy, Jessica (2016)
    A brain-computer interface (BCI) is a system that provides direct communication between cognitive activity and external systems. This project involved creating a BCI that allowed participants to learn how to control virtual ...
  • Pekerti, Dakota (2016)
    For my E90 project, I synthesized a robust model that may be used to evaluate both the optimal performance of residential solar PV systems and the effect of different policies regarding solar energy within different cities ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Borris, Mercer; Brakeman, Sara (2016)
    In high­-rise apartment buildings, there are many pipes as part of the supply and drainage system for potable water. Leaks in these pipes result in a waste of usable water and money, especially when they are internal. In ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
