Unmanned subsurface investigation technologies for the Moon are of special significance for future exploration when considering the renewed interest of the international community for this interplanetary destination. In precision agriculture, farmers demand quasi-real-time sensors and instruments with remote crop and soil detection properties to meet sustainability goals and achieve healthier and higher crop yields. Hence, there is the need for a robot that will be able to travel through the soil and conduct sampling or in-situ analysis of the subsurface materials on earth and in space. This thesis presents the design, fabrication, and characterization of a robot that can travel …

As digital technology promises immediacy and interactivity in communication, sight and sound in motion graphics has expanded the range of design possibilities in advertising, social networking, and telecommunication beyond the visual realm. The experience of seeing has been greatly enriched by sound as visual solutions become dynamic and multi-dimensional. The ability to record and transfer sight and sound with new media has granted the designer more control in manipulating a viewer's experience of time and space. This control allows time-based form to become the foundation that establishes many interactive, multisensory and interdisciplinary applications. Is conventional design theory for print media …
