Two-wheeled Self-balancing Robot: Design and Control Based on the Concept of an Inverted Pendulum (Robotics/Mechanical Project)

In the last decade, the open source community has expanded to make it possible for people to build complex products at home. In this project a two-wheeled self-balancing robot has been designed. These types of robots can be based on Continue reading

Augmented Robotics Dialog System for Enhancing Human–Robot Interaction (Computer Project)

ABSTRACT

Augmented reality, augmented television and second screen are cutting edge technologies that provide end users extra and enhanced information related to certain events in real time. This enriched information helps users better understand such events, Continue reading

Development of Embedded EM Sensors for Estimating Tensile Forces of PSC Girder Bridges (Civil Project)

ABSTRACT

The tensile force of pre-stressed concrete (PSC) girders is the most important factor for managing the stability of PSC bridges. The tensile force is induced using pre-stressing (PS) tendons of a PSC girder. Because the PS tendons are located inside 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

Colorful Textile Antennas Integrated into Embroidered Logos (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

We present a new methodology to create colorful textile antennas that can be embroidered within logos or other a esthetic shapes. Conductive threads (e-threads) have already been used in former embroidery unicolor approaches as attributed to Continue reading
