Programming Examples: Sorts Complete

Category:Projects

Background In any course of study in Computer Science and Engineering, sorts are one of the first topics covered, generally in data structures or a similar class. I first learned the simple sorts (Insertion and Selection) in high school. When I decided to begin this project, sorts were one of the first items for me […]

Triangles and Circles

Category:ProjectsTag: , :

In my Math 300 class, I wrote a proof for the equivalent area of a circle and a right triangle with legs of length of the circumference and radius. This is a simple proof that was a final project for my transistion to advanced math class. It was fun to work on and to try […]

Assembled Hexcopter with Controller

The chassis for the hexcopter came in and I assembled it today. We ordered a DJI Flamewheel 550 which is a medium sized hexcopter with all DJI propulsion systems. We hooked up the ESCs to an ardupilot controller with telemetry radio radio and made a short test flight in the show that all of the […]

ColaHacks

A Hackathon is an “invention marathon.” ColaHacks was a hackathon sponsored by the University of South Carolina Women in Computing and Association for Computing Machinery student groups. At this hackathon, I worked on a team of three to design a sample software for computer science teachers to use in class. This software is able to […]

Genetic Algorithm for Traveling Salesperson Problem

I decided to revisit an old problem from my junior year artificial intelligence class. My final project was a genetic algorithm to find a non-optimal solution to a Traveling Salesperson scenario. This is not complete as it is not guarenteed to give an optimal solution in any run time, but it gives a reasonable route […]

Programming Problems

I’ve begun to implement some of the classical programming problems in a Github repo. My goal for this is to become familiar with many of the problems in several languages. My plan for implementation is below: Sorts Data Structures Networking (server and clients) Machine Learning (Linear Regressor, Genetic algorithm, neural nets, k-means,) Path finders(Greedy, Djikstra, […]

NASA Glenn Research Center and ASGSR CFC Experiment

I, along with a group of two other people from my school, Gracen Mueller and Ryan Cuentes, submitted a project proposal to the ASGSR Capillary Flow Challenge that was accepted. The project is testing the ejection of droplets in a zero gravity environment using the Glenn Research Facility’s 2.2s drop tower. My team will be […]
