Wing Tip Dynamics Simulator

INTRODUCTION

The main goal of this project is to design and manufacture a testing device that will move an antenna in way that simulates a wingtip in flight in an anechoic chamber for the Raytheon Company. Raytheon is a defense contractor that is divided into multiple Continue reading

Design And Analysis Of a Lift Assist Walker

ABSTRACT

Walkers provided stability to the elderly but cannot assist a person from sitting to standing. The objective of this project is to present the design and analysis of a lift assist walker. This report discusses the design and analysis of a collapsible lift assist walker Continue reading

Design, Fabrication, and Testing of Anemr Gun Based Orbital Debris Impact Testing Platform

ABSTRACT

This paper describes the changes made from Cal Poly’s initial railgun system, the Mk. 1 railgun, to the Mk. 1.1 system, as well as the design, fabrication, and testing of a newer and larger Mk. 2 railgun system. The Mk. 1.1 system is developed as a more Continue reading

Multicore, Multithreaded, Phase-synchronous Fm Sound Synthesizer

ABSTRACT

This project implements a phase-synchronous FM synthesis algorithm in hardware. Envelope and low frequency oscillator modulation of oscillator parameters is implemented. The microcontroller the system is based on, the XMOS XS1-G4, allows for Continue reading

Robust Unconstrained Face Detection and Lip Localization Algorithm Using Gabor Filters

ABSTRACT

Automatic speech recognition (ASR) is a well-researched field of study aimed at augmenting the man-machine interface through interpretation of the spoken word. From in-car voice recognition systems to automated telephone directories, automatic Continue reading

Scaled Synthetic Aperture Radar System Development

ABSTRACT

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems generate two dimensional images of a target area using RF energy as opposed to light waves used by cameras. When cloud cover or other optical obstructions prevent camera imaging over a target area, SAR Continue reading

Concatenative Synthesis for Novel Timbral Creation

ABSTRACT

Modern day musicians rely on a variety of instruments for musical expression. Tones produced from electronic instruments have become almost as commonplace as those produced by traditional ones as evidenced by the plethora of artists who can be Continue reading

Digital Guitar Effects Unit and Amplifier

ABSTRACT

This report outlines the design and implementation of a digital guitar effects unit and amplifier. The main portion of this project consisted of the digital equalizer and effects. Several commercial equalizers were researched in order to decide the typical Continue reading

Face and Lip Localization in Unconstrained Imagery

ABSTRACT

When combined with acoustical speech information, visual speech information (lip movement) significantly improves Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) in acoustically noisy environments. Previous research has demonstrated that visual modality Continue reading

An Auction-based Spectrum Leasing Mechanism for Mobile Macro-Femtocell Networks of IoT

ABSTRACT

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a vision of the upcoming society. It can provide pervasive communication between two or more entities using 4G-LTE (Long Term Evolution) communication technology. In 4G-LTE networks, there are two important Continue reading
