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

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
. The unique front-wheel drive mechanism was adopted
Izzy Urieli's Grasshopper
designs, with much success.
