  • Fonder, Gregory Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The objective of this thesis was to study and improve one's own physical intelligence. Through studying bodily movements of people trying to accomplish new tasks, I realized one way to enhance physical intelligence was ...
  • Hong, Vu Anh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Many applications, such as laser diode technology, utilize components (eg. resistors) which have performance characteristics heavily dependent on temperature, and therefore, maintaining constant temperature is essential ...
  • Bageant, Maia R. (Maia Reynolds) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    In this thesis, I designed and constructed hardware for a two-wheeled balancing Segway robot. Because the robot could not be balanced based on a control system derived from the original analytical model, additional system ...
  • Rosales, Evencio A. (Evencio Alex), 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    An apparatus of the classical ball-on-beam problem was designed and constructed to be used as a pedagogical instrument in feedback courses. The aesthetic and mechanical design incorporated economical materials to make kits ...
  • Aggarwal, Sanjay Kumar (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Roth, Meagan (Meagan Ashley) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) have a wide variety of underwater applications. Controlling these robots wirelessly in an aquatic environment is challenging because of signal attenuation. This challenge is made even more ...
  • Molina, Keith M. (Keith Martin) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Research in advanced fenestration systems has led to the development of the Heliodome project at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Daylighting Laboratory. The MIT Heliodome project is dedicated to goniophotometry ...
  • Gill, Harmeet (Harmeet Kaur) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The rotator cuff is composed of the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subcapularis, and teres minor tendons. Rotator cuff injuries are common athletic and occupational injuries that surgery cannot fully repair. Therefore tendon ...
  • Sidelko, Stephanie (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The study of aerodynamics is very important in the world of cycling. Wind tunnel research is conducted on most of the equipment that is used by a rider and is a critical factor in the advancement of the sport. However, to ...
  • McDonald, Heather E. (Heather Elizabeth) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    A suspension system was designed to make The Rickshaw Bank's bicycle-powered rickshaws more comfortable for the drivers. A four bar linkage with a rising rate spring was chosen as the design. An unconventional material-tire ...
  • Acosta, Arron (Arron Scott) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The addition of a systems engineering concentration through the MIT Mechanical Engineering Alternative (course 2A) curriculum will be shown to have the potential to increase the number of engineering degrees in comparison ...
  • Wu, Jodie (Jodie Z.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    There are 550 million smallholder farmers around the world who earn less than $1/day who could benefit from pedal-powered attachments. This project discusses factors to consider in designing for developing countries and ...
  • Fly, Charles Bruce (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1978)
  • Gomez, Teresa M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis explores the use of binary actuators to adjust the shape of an array of mirrors. To explore this concept, an experimental system was refurbished and recalibrated. This experimental system was used to explore ...
  • McDougal, Wesley D (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The biomechanics of lower limb locomotion is a yet unknown mixture of neurological control and physical parameters. The current study explored attaching a rehabilitative anklebot to subjects walking on a treadmill and ...
  • Bonebreak, Christina M. (Christina Michelle) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    An experiment was performed to determine the effect of crosslinking on the stiffness of collagen scaffolds. Engineered non-crosslinked and dehydrothermally crosslinked chondroitin-6-sulfate collagen scaffolds were hydrated ...
  • Louison, Charles Davidson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This thesis surrounds an analysis to understand what it would take for a company to successfully launch a prescription fluid dispensing device. This device would in theory be able to dispense medication at any time daily ...
  • Tow, Emily W (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Flow boiling is important in energy conversion and thermal management due to its potential for very high heat fluxes. By improving understanding of the conditions leading to bubble departure, surfaces can be designed that ...
  • Oehlerking, Austin L (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    A competitive, closed-loop information feedback system of wireless electricity meters was designed, tested, and implemented in seven MIT dormitory rooms. The meters utilized Allegro Hall Effect current sensors as well as ...
  • Brown, Ashlie (Ashlie M.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Design guidelines for tools to enhance protein education are developed and applied to a prototype tool. A literature search and personal experience suggest kinetic, tangible models fill the current gaps in protein education. ...
