  • Howell, Catherine, 1980- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Angelosanto, Gina (Gina C.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    This study explores the use of Kalman filtering of measurements from an inertial measurement unit (IMU) to provide information on the orientation of a robot for balance control. A test bed was created to characterize the ...
  • Tobias, David E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This project examines the choreography of high speed turns performed by Danio aequipinnatus, giant danio, with the goal of understanding the motions that allow this species to perform its highly efficient maneuvering. ...
  • Zimmerman, Julia C (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In order to determine the extent to which ankle motion is voluntarily controlled during walking, angular velocity measurements at the ankle were taken in two cases. In the first case, subjects were seated and instructed ...
  • Rea, Jonathan (Jonathan E.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Anaerobic digesters convert organic waste (agricultural and food waste, animal or human manure, and other organic waste), into energy (in the form of biogas or electricity). An added benefit to bio-digestion is a leftover ...
  • Carvey, Matthew R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Recent research into the mechanics of walking indicates that a quasi passive wearable device could be created which dramatically reduces the metabolic energy used in walking especially when the wearer is carrying additional ...
  • Baines, Andrew Griffin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Passive-dynamic walkers are a class of robots that can walk down a ramp stably without actuators or control due to the mechanical dynamics of the robot. Using a passive-dynamic design as the basis for a powered robot helps ...
  • Aust, Laura E; Rose, Zachary W; Smith, Ariadne G; Saigal, Amrita (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Every mechanical engineering student at MIT takes the same courses: 2.009 being one of them. In our capstone product design course at MIT, most students glean an incredible amount from their teams, mentors, and projects, ...
  • Poteet, Amanda N (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    A study into the field of humanitarian landmine removal was conducted; with significant attention devoted to an in depth review of existing removal technologies, as well as alternative detection methods. A design proposal ...
  • DiBacco, John, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Mendiola, David Mario (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Music is constantly evolving, both in the culture and musical theory that dictates its structure, and the technology used to create the actual sound. This thesis explores a direction for development of one of the most ...
  • Hui, Corinna (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Using laser range finders as a method of navigation is popular with mobile land robots; however, there has been little research using it with water vehicles. Therefore, this thesis explores the usage and data flow of a ...
  • Seluga, Kristopher J. (Kristopher Joseph), 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
  • Torres, James, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The distribution of clean, drinkable water is a problem that has been addressed in all civilizations. The most common form of transportation today, is the use of pressurized pipelines to carry the water long distances, but ...
  • Saldivar, Orlando (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Levy flights have been recently found to approximate the trajectories of animal foragers in their search for resources and food. Levy flights have proved to be effective in searching tasks because of their characteristic ...
  • Huang, Jessica J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The main purpose of this paper is to assess the energy and environmental benefits of cultivating hybrid poplars as a biomass crop for cellulosic ethanol. A "Life Cycle Assessment" (LCA) methodology is used to systematically ...
  • Dave, Shreya H (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Access to electricity in developing countries is minimal and if available, often unreliable. As a result, fuel-based kerosene lighting is the most common solution to lighting necessities. However, kerosene combustion affects ...
  • Ramsey, William Durand (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • Hong, Wenxian (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The structure of light around a scene may be contained in a 4-dimensional array known as a light field. This thesis describes methods for acquiring and manipulating light fields for applications in 3-dimensional imaging. ...
  • Scelfo, Tony (Tony W.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This document describes the design and fabrication of a complete driveline package for the MIT Formula SAE race car. The driveline is centered around a custom aluminum housing for a Torsen® T 1I gearing. This gearing ...
