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

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

Flight Testing Small UAVs for Aerodynamic Parameter Estimation (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

A flight data acquisition system was developed to aid unmanned vehicle designers in verifying the vehicle’s design performance. The system is reconfigurable and allows the designer to choose the correct combination of complexity, risk, and cost for a Continue reading

Development of a Digital Controller for Motor Control (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

A digital motor controller for student lab use is designed, built, and tested. The controller uses an encoder for position measurement, and an H-bridge to drive the electromechanical plant. A user interface is created to enhance usability of the device. Continue reading
