  • Hilton, Eric, S. B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    An investigation in current RFID technology with an envision design of a hybrid setup with Active RFID and camera technology. Current Active RFID technologies focus on dynamic mesh networks with complex functionality on ...
  • Arnold, Sean (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • Chai, Lauren (Lauren Amy) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    A force controlled ultrasound probe is being explored as a new method of measuring blood pressure. An arterial simulator was designed and built for experiments. For this simulator, the vessels and bulk material were designed ...
  • Weiner, Stephen (Stephen Andrew) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Working with Gillette Corporation, an automated mechanical testing tool that bent a small flat piece of steel was designed. The design of the tool was an effort to improve upon previous generations of the same tool. It ...
  • Hidayah, Rand (Rand G.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Insulator based dielectrophoresis (iDEP) is a technique used for sorting microparticles based on their electrical properties which proves to be promising in its development. Using multiple constrictions of area to generate ...
  • Ortiz-Soto, Elliott (Elliott A.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    The automotive industry is currently struggling because of the increasingly stricter emissions standards that will take effect in the near future. Diesel engine emissions are of particular interest because they are still ...
  • Segado, Martin Alan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This research assesses the effects of planar flexural elements on the repeatability of a high-precision kinematic coupling. Few devices exist that are capable of passive, repeatable nanoscale fixturing; this research ...
  • Blanco, Matthew C. (Matthew Corwin) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Recently, bistable springs have been proven as a viable propulsion method for the standard 1.75" foam balls used in Nerf® projectile toys. This technology was developed at M.I.T. by William Fienup and Barry Kudrowitz, who ...
  • Bollini, Mario Attilio (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    This thesis reviews the design of two scaled mechanical end effectors that mimic the digging of Ensis directus, the Atlantic Razor Clam. Modeled after a 0.5x Ensis scale device, the end effectors are 1.0x and 2.0x Ensis ...
  • Thornhill, Shaka J. P. (Shaka Jomo Patrice) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The aim of a class with Engineering Design points at MIT is to help the students learn how to put into practice different lessons and techniques in engineering a product. Beginner machinist are sometimes held back by the ...
  • Roberts, Megan Johnson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    This thesis details the development of a small, low cost, underwater manipulator for use on the XAUV. At this time, there are no cheap underwater servos commercially available. The design involves modifying a commercially ...
  • Greenlee, Alison S (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Energy generated from offshore resources is not reliable over short periods of time. Although wind and wave energy is fairly consistent in the long run, their short term capacity fluctuations prohibit these resources from ...
  • Tsai, Helen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis project involves developing a pair of swimming fins to strengthen the Vastus Medialis, or inner quadriceps muscle, to help patients with Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome. Configurations of mock up fins, made from ...
  • Lau, Jacky H. (Jacky Homing) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis presents the design and structural analyses of an experimental test bench for the characterization of an active biomimetic knee prosthesis currently being developed by the Biomechatronics research group at MIT ...
  • Yoon, You C. (You Chang) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis presents the design and analysis of an experimental test bench for the characterization of piezoelectric microelectromechanical system (MEMS) energy harvester being developed by the Micro & Nano Systems Laboratory ...
  • Zabel, Naomi W (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Small leaks in pipes cause huge losses of water, wasting the energy and money put into cleaning the water and pumping it to the point of the leak. Detecting these small leaks is currently not very accurate or practical to ...
  • Akraboff, Nicolina Alden (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The head of the Huggable teddy bear, a robotic companion for use in hospitals, schools, and other locations, must contain three degrees of freedom. It must contain transmissions allowing it to nod up and down, tilt side ...
  • Cole, Sarah Elizabeth, S. B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In the realm of systems with Reynolds numbers less than 1, swimming is a difficult task. Viscous forces from the fluid dominate inertial forces. In order to propel itself, a mechanism must be designed to overcome the viscous ...
  • Piazzarolo, Bruno Aiala (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    In medical emergencies, an oxygen-starved brain quickly suffers irreparable damage. In many cases, patients who stop breathing can be resuscitated but suffer from brain damage. Dr. John Kheir from Boston Children's Hospital ...
  • Carvajal, Michael Angelo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In this thesis, the design process for wheel-robot integration was documented and reflected on. The project focused on redesigned certain aspects a half-scale wheel-robot to be integrated with a half-scale CityCar prototype ...
