For now this website is just a small collection of personal projects or things that I worked on for school. This is not a portfolio of any kind and is for your viewing pleasure only. Anything school related probably will not include source material for obvious reasons, please don't ask.

Artificial Neural Network Character Recognition

Artificial Neural Network Character Recognition

This project demonstrates using an artificial neural network to recoginize handwritten digits. The method of network training used is backpropagation with momentum, and the node activation function used is the sigmoid function. The network is made up of three layers: the input layer, a hidden layer, and the output layer.

8-Puzzle Solver

8-Puzzle Solver

This applet is another heuristic search exercise that solves the classic 8-puzzle from a given initial state. Unlike the A* search with a given area of terrain, the search space for this problem is an expansion of all possible states. From any given parent state, each possible move is a child node.

A* Search Algorithm

A* Search Algorithm

This applet is a demonstration of the A* search algorithm. The Pythagorean distance from the avatar to the goal point is used as the heuristic value.

Optical Line Tracking Robot

See video

This video demonstrates an optical line-tracking robot I made for school. The robot also features a remote control (RC) mode using the receiver/transmitter set from a miniature indoor RC helicopter. Everything is controlled with a PIC24F microcontroller development board mounted on top of the platform.

Concurrent N-Body Simulation

Concurrent N-Body Simulation

This applet demonstrations a couple thread barrier synchronization techniques with an n-body simulation. The 'Parallel 1' options represent custom barrier synchronization, and the 'Parallel 2' options represent the CyclicBarrier supplied by the Java API.

Very Unique Cakes

A website for my sister's custom handmade cakes.

A partial collection of paintings by my grandfather Dick de Groot.

I use this site as a demonstration for a Drupal module I built and maintain called ImageCache Scale-9 Actions.
