Data Acquisition for Flight Tests using Handheld GPS and Electronic Flight Instrument System (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

This paper addresses the data acquisition system designed in order to gather flight test data for two different aircraft for the AERO flight test class at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. It summarizes the system, data acquisition devices, methods used, data comparison Continue reading

Using Monocular Vision and Image Correlation to Accomplish Autonomous Localization (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

For autonomous navigation, robots and vehicles must have accurate estimates of their current state (i.e. location and orientation) within an inertial coordinate frame. If a map is given a priori, the process of determining this state is known as localization. Continue reading

Analysis of the Impact of Contagion Flow on Firm Value and Application to High Yield Bond Portfolio Optimization (Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Portfolios of financial instruments are designed to increase returns and manage risk. In high-risk investment strategies, central measures of risk must be complemented with controls on tail measures of risk. An unanticipated event that impacts 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

Subwoofer Frequency Response Optimization by Means of Active Control (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Most subwoofer systems have difficulties producing frequencies in the low end of the hearing spectrum due to the added power requirements and instabilities. Active controls can transform the audio signal without changing physical characteristics and 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
