dc.description.abstractIn the summer of 2002 I was employed by the University of Michigan Research Institute, Biosciences division to create a program that would aid the process of accelerometer calibration for transducers used in crash testing. At that time, accelerometer calibrations were done in one of two ways: they were either expensively sent to a professional calibration service, or done manually using a pendulum-like drop tower developed by UMTRI. The resulting Java executable, later dubbed TACT (TACT Accelerometer Calibration Tool), automated this second cheaper alternative. This paper is a collaboration of my research surrounding TACT, which includes object-oriented languages, object-oriented programming, and object-oriented design patterns.en_US
