FreeMat is an open-source MATLAB clone dedicated to providing MATLAB's basic functionality with cross-platform support, with the capability to modify the proram to fit your needs. Specific projects I'm working on with respect to FreeMat include developing a cheap A/D converter (on the order of $5) compatible with any computer and realtime GPS integration with the software.


The HPUV, or Human-Powered Utility Vehicle, is a vehicle I designed for developing communities in conjunction with my master's thesis. The goals of the vehicle were to meet the specific needs of the community with a vehicle they could easily build and maintain with materials and technologies already available on site. The unique front-wheel drive mechanism was adopted from Dr. Izzy Urieli's Grasshopper designs, with much success.
