  • Bardagjy, Andrew Matthew (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Spectroscopy is a powerful tool in material identification, characterization and discrimination. Unfortunately industrial and laboratory spectrometers are typically very large, costly, and inconvenient. The aim of this ...
  • Reynolds, Matthew S. (Matthew Stephen), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    This thesis concerns the application of electromagnetic wave propagation to the problem of indoor radiolocation. Determining the location of people and objects relative to their environment is crucial for asset tracking, ...
  • Linder, Natan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    For quite some time, researchers and designers in the field of human computer interaction have strived to better integrate information interfaces into our physical environment. They envisioned a future where computing and ...
  • Eagle, Nathan Norfleet (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The study of complex social systems has traditionally been an arduous process, involving extensive surveys, interviews, ethnographic studies, or analysis of online behavior. Today, however, it is possible to use the ...
  • Krom, Matthew Wayne (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1996)
  • Dobson, Kelly E. (Kelly Elizabeth), 1970- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Machine Therapy is a new practice combining art, design, psychoanalysis, and engineering work in ways that access and reveal the vital, though often unnoticed, relevance of people's interactions and relationships with ...
  • Roque, Ricarose Vallarta (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This thesis explores how we can design learning environments to support broad participation in creative collaboration-that is, the process of working together on the construction of an artifact. I describe and analyze the ...
  • Morris, Robert, S.M. (Robert Randall). Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Many individuals diagnosed with autism experience auditory sensitivity - a condition that can cause irritation, pain, and, in some cases, profound fear. Efforts have been made to manage sound sensitivities in autism, but ...
  • Papanikolaou, Dimitrios, M.S. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Mobility on Demand (MOD) systems allow users to pick-up and drop-off vehicles (bikes, automobiles) ubiquitously in a network of parking stations. Asymmetric demand patterns cause unbalanced fleet allocation decreasing level ...
  • Smith, Casey Wayne, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
  • Coelho, Marcelo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    At the boundary between people, objects and spaces, we encounter a broad range of surfaces. Their properties perform functional roles such as permeability, comfort or illumination, while conveying information such as an ...
  • Coelho, Marcelo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Materials that embody computational properties are reshaping the ways in which we design, interact and communicate. This thesis looks at the topic of form transformation and how to bring the programmability and versatility ...
  • Ou, Jifei (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis takes a material perspective on designing transformable interfaces. The structure of material and mechanical properties such as stiffness, can determine not only its static performances, but also, with the help ...
  • Greenwald, Scott Wilkins (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    A longstanding trend in supercomputing is that as supercomputers scale, they become more difficult to program in a way that fully utilizes their parallel processing capabilities. At the same time they become more power-hungry ...
  • Ađalgeirsson, Sigurđur Örn (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Telepresence refers to a set of technologies that allow users to feel present at a distant location, telerobotics is a subfield of telepresence. Much work has been done in telerobotics through the years to provide safer ...
  • Patten, James McMichael, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This thesis presents a new type of human-computer interface based on mechanical constraints that combines some of the tactile feedback and affordances of mechanical systems with the abstract computational power of modern ...
  • Atkins, Derek A. (Derek Allan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Patel, Surjit Savji, 1970- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
  • Metcalfe, Christian Todd, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Torpey, Peter Alexander (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Media Scores provide a theoretical and technical means to orchestrate multiple modalities in the creation of expressive works of art and performance. New technologies afford numerous opportunities to tell stories and create ...
