Studying The Effects Of Serpentine Soil On Adapted And Non-Adapted Species Using Arduino Technology, Kiana Saniee, Edward Himelblau, Brian Paavo
STAR (STEM Teacher and Researcher) Presentations
Abstract: Serpentine soils are formed from ultramafic rocks and are represent an extreme environment for plants. Serpentine soils are unique in that they carry high concentrations of heavy metals, are nutrient deficient, particularly in calcium, and have poor water retention capabilities. Although these soils constitute harsh conditions for plant growth, there are a number of species that are adapted and even endemic to serpentine soil. Water retention by commercial potting mix was compared with serpentine soil. Also, serpentine adapted and non-adapted species were grown in both soil treatments and physiological data were collected. We used the Arduino electronic platform to ...
Mechanical Design And Optimization Of An Interactive Animatronic Bald Eagle, 2016 Georgia Southern University
Mechanical Design And Optimization Of An Interactive Animatronic Bald Eagle, Eric Burns
Phi Kappa Phi Research Symposium
Animatronics is a specialized sub-category of mechatronics, a fusion of mechanical and electrical engineering. The field has grown from small, individual projects into a major industry. As animatronics progress, mechanical engineers are pushed to design internal structures which occupy ever-decreasing spaces and to ensure designs can undergo maintenance and modifications smoothly. This research investigates methods of reducing space required for mechanisms and several other beneficial methods of development as well as varying satisfactions for audiences when exposed to actor-controlled systems rather than pre-scripted functions. The mechanical systems are designed using CAD software available at Georgia Southern. On-campus, resources are used ...

Cal Poly Supermileage Electronic Fuel Injection, 2016 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
Cal Poly Supermileage Electronic Fuel Injection, Alexander Pink
Cal Poly Supermileage is a student-run engineering club that builds prototype gasoline vehicles optimized maximum fuel-efficiency. To power their vehicles, the Supermileage team makes use of single-cylinder, 4-stroke, electronically fuel-injected (EFI) gasoline engines. This report details the development, iterative design & test cycles, and integration of an EFI system for the Supermileage club. This project develops an EFI system that interfaces to the most common types of sensors found in the low-power Supermileage-range of engines, including throttle-position sensors, manifold absolute pressure sensors, gear-tooth hall-effect sensors, variable-reluctance position sensors, engine coolant temperature sensors, intake air temperature sensors, and exhaust oxygen sensors. This ...
Micronaut: A 2d Action Side Scrolling Platformer For The Apple Tv, 2016 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
Micronaut: A 2d Action Side Scrolling Platformer For The Apple Tv, Christopher Michael Williams
Micronaut is a 2D side scrolling platformer video game application developed for the Apple TV with the tvOS SDK version 9.1. It explores humancomputer interaction of platformer video games on the Apple TV and aims to give the player the most control to maximize enjoyment. Micronaut features five engaging levels with each level designed to focus on teaching the player the mechanics one at a time. Micronaut has been submitted and is undergoing submission for the Apple TV App Store at the time of this paper. Christopher Williams managed the software development and design, and Jacob Johannesen created ...
Duck Watch: A Smart System For Public Lap Pools, 2016 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
Duck Watch: A Smart System For Public Lap Pools, Daniel Griffith, Jill Thetford
This paper presents Duck Watch, a proof of concept for a smart swimming pool. With our system, a swimmer will be able to log on to our website prior to leaving his or her house to help them decide if the conditions are favorable to go to a public lap swimming pool. Our system will inform the user of a number of environmental factors such as water temperature, exterior temperature, and humidity, as well as whether or not there are any open lanes currently.
El Capitán: Cal Poly Rose Float Digital Drive System, 2016 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
El Capitán: Cal Poly Rose Float Digital Drive System, Gregory Raffi Baghdikian
In today’s world of smartphones, self-driving cars, and internet-connected coffee makers, it seems as if computers are contained in everything around us. These “embedded systems” have become critical components of our lives, improving everything about the things they control, from cost, to speed, to simplicity. One area that embedded systems has hardly gained a foothold is in the world of floatbuilding. Most of the floats in the Tournament of Roses Parade, including the one built jointly by Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and Cal Poly Pomona, are technologically very simple, using mostly analog components and rudimentary discrete digital logic ...
Rapid Battery Exchange Automation, 2016 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
Rapid Battery Exchange Automation, Andrea Everson
With the drastic threat of exhausting the world’s fossil fuels, society has been scrambling to find alternative forms of energy for transportation. One of these viable options is an electric vehicle powered by batteries. While this idea is fairly viable, consumers are looking to have the same experience with an electric car than they would with a gas-powered vehicle. One of their major concerns is the lack of range in an electric vehicle.
This project aims to present a solution that would extend the range by allowing users to quickly go from low battery to fully charged battery by ...

Ac Power Monitoring System Provides Individual Circuit Energy Consumption Data, 2016 Cedarville University
Ac Power Monitoring System Provides Individual Circuit Energy Consumption Data, Jared L. Newman, Grayson H. Dearing, Luke M. Tomlinson, Frederick G. Harmon
The Research and Scholarship Symposium
Motivated by high energy costs, people and organizations want to cut back on their energy consumption. However, the only feedback consumers typically receive is a monthly bill listing their total electricity usage (in kWh). Some companies have begun developing systems that allow households and organizations to monitor their energy usage for individual circuits. Available systems are expensive so a CU engineering senior design team has designed, fabricated, and tested a system for use at Cedarville University. The AC power monitoring system has the ability to measure energy consumption for each individual circuit in the breaker panel, store the data, and ...
