Stanford Supplemental Essay: Briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work or family responsibilities | Yusef

Briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work or family responsibilities. (150 words)

Dean’s Early Research Initiative at Virginia Commonwealth University is a research internship in which I am collaborating with a professor to study the accuracy of inertial sensors (accelerometers and gyroscopes) regarding vehicles such as cars and bikes.

We will be developing code to interpret this data and transform them into an elaborate visual format. The goal is to utilize my physics and calculus knowledge to fully account for the motion of the vehicle through space. Since the models are three-dimensional, we will be able to sense any miscues in either direction. For example, we can sense if the car went in a pothole or experienced rapid deceleration.

We hope to use our findings and apply them beyond our current scope. We will be giving others a pathway to develop machine learning models that use our data and provide real-time driving suggestions that could focus on engine preservation or fuel efficiency.
