Commercialization possibilities of Stirling engine technology for microscale power generation in Sweden (Mechanical Project)

The presented study has evaluated the possibility of commercializing a research project at the Royal Institute of Technologys (KTH) Department of Energy Technology (EGI) in Stockholm, Sweden, where a Stirling engine is used for renewable microscale power generation. The purpose of the study has been to Continue reading

Simulation and Control System of a Railroad Track Power Harvesting Device (Mechanical Project)

With the vastness of existing railroad infrastructure, there exist numerous road crossings which are lacking warning light systems and/or crossing gates due to their remoteness from existing electrical infrastructure. Along with lacking warning light systems, these areas also Continue reading

Workplace Posture Assessment and Biofeedback With Kinect (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

With the prevalence of computing, many workers today are confined to desk within an office. By sitting in these positions for long periods of time, workers are prone to develop one of many musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Continue reading

A Guide to Producing An A Cappella CD and Development of a Pitch Detection Program (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

An in-depth look at the steps required to produce a CD for an a cappella group. From what microphone and preamplifiers to use, to what steps to take during the editing, mixing, and mastering processes. Finished with a look at pitch detection algorithms and Continue reading

Hardware and Software Study of Active Noise Cancellation (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Noise cancellation involves removing an unwanted noise while keeping the source sound. The source sound may consist of speech, music played from a device such as an iPod or a computer, or no sound at all. The objective of this project is to study the process Continue reading

Monophonic Pitch Recognition (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT
The purpose of this project is to create a system that automatically converts monophonic music into its MIDI equivalent. Automatic pitch recognition allows for numerous commercial applications, including automatic transcription and digital storage Continue reading

Viscosity Dependence of Faraday Wave Formation Thresholds (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

This experiment uses an electromagnetic shaker to produce standing wave patterns on the surface of a vertically oscillating sample of silicon liquid. These surface waves, known as Faraday waves, form shapes such as squares, lines, and hexagons. Continue reading
