Heads Up Display on Android
The goal of this project is to build upon the SAndroid project, which was created as a previous Software Engineering senior project. SAndroid provides services such as TacChat, SA proximity, and Cursor on Target. Our project will use these services in conjunction with other information provided by the Android phone, such as current location and orientation. These features will act as a Heads-Up Display (HUD) which overlays video captured from devices to provide augmented reality functionality. The end result of the project is an Android application, so the video feed will generally be coming from the phone's camera.
The Augmented Reality portions will utilize existing libraries - either Qualcomm's AR library, or the one available through Google.
iPedago â€°Ã›Ã’ Personal Learning System
iPedago is an organizational learning tool to promote self education and content reinforcement. It’s targeted towards students but with the flexibility to work with any individual who wishes to research a new topic. Users can import content from a variety of different sources and file types. The application allows users to create their own questions and answers to place on virtual flash cards which can be revisited at anytime. The system can optionally quiz the user at random times to ensure comprehension of the material.
Users can import resources and extrapolate important bits of information to help summarize the material. They also have the ability to highlight snippets of text for quick recall later on and even create a glossary of key terms and definitions automatically. iPedago has a coach to help guide the user through the process of building their topic project(s).
Many commercially available digital learning systems are targeted towards specific subjects or disciplines. This product, on the other hand, has the flexibility to assist with self-learning for any desired subject. In addition, once a project is published by an iPedago user, it can be distributed amongst other users interested in learning the same topic across the world.
School Volunteer Management Interface
The site will accommodate three types of users: Posters, Helpers and Volunteer Coordinators. Posters are pre-approved administrative figures that are in search of volunteers for a certain need. Helpers are community-approved volunteers who are looking to contribute volunteer hours of service or donations. Helpers will be able to print a report detailing their volunteer history. Volunteer Coordinators are volunteers who are aware of the communities volunteering rules and any legal criteria for posted needs; they are also responsible for approving or rejecting need requests, as well as creating/approving user accounts. The system will give users the opportunity to provide feedback on the task and on the volunteers who completed the task.
The first live test of the website will be administered at the Brockport Central School District.
Virtual Industrial Facility - Simulated Environmental, Health & Safety Assessment
courses may tour a virtual facility and interview workers. Students will identify environmental aspects and impacts, as well
as occupational health and safety hazards and risks, based on the information they gather about the activities of the
simulated facility through their interviews with facility personnel. Potentially, students may also be able to observe EHS
concerns in the virtual environment. Students will work either individually or in teams to turn in a completed EHS report.
The professor of the course may log in to view and evaluate the students' completed reports, to group students into project
teams, and to create or modify virtual facility scenarios. The application will assist in the professor's evaluation of
students' reports. Team PUMA will provide the finished project, the documentation for operating the system, and other relevant
project deliverables to the faculty advisor and the project sponsors. This project should be considered by the project sponsors
and students taking the course to be superior to the current workbook system.
