Web-based Status Dashboards
360 Degree Survey
The 360 survey software project will deliver a web application for creating custom 360 surveys. Users will be able to select those who are rating and those being rated, complete surveys, analyze results of individual surveys and aggregations from several surveys, and export raw data for further analysis. The final web application will improve upon existing competitors by allowing survey feedback to be customized, offering an easy-to-use web interface that fits the needs of experts and novices alike, visualizing survey data in a more informative and statistically useful format, calculating commonly-used statistics, and providing these features at a low cost.
A Flight Simulator for Pilot Training: Flying Tiger Phase I
Moog Inc. is a corporation that designs and manufactures fluid control systems for various industries worldwide. The aviation branch of East Aurora, NY will be sponsoring a multi-disciplinary senior project at RIT in which students will be developing a flight simulator. The simulator will be used for customer demonstrations to help sell Moog systems. Our software engineering team will be responsible for the visual content displayed in the flight simulator. Our system will receive information from a system called the dSPACE controller and will generate visual feedback in the form of a virtual cockpit window and instrument display. The dSPACE controller will be developed by Moog and acts as a faÃŒ_ade between the hardware inputs and our software package. The graphical output will be rendered using flight simulation software that is already available. The instrumentation display will be created based off of the actual physical instruments found in the aircraft being converted in to a flight simulator.
CARS Faculty Course Assignment and Scheduling System
The general users for this tool are department chairmen, administrators, faculty, and staff.
CARS provides a mechanism for users to easily access and arrange information in a simple manner. However there are flaws in the current system that need to be addressed, as these flaws can cause serious problems.
A new version of CARS will be designed and developed based on the current implementation. It will address many of the imperfections that currently exist, such as security holes, lack of user input validation, lack of audit trails and lack of support for the new semester system. In addition, the system architecture will be redesigned to improve its security, extensibility, scalability and usability.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine Registry
- The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is interested in exploring the use of complementary and alternative medicines (CAMs) by Veterans. These modalities represent therapies that are adjunct, or alternative, to standard treatments, but have been studied less and currently are not widely used. Veterans Affairs requires a system to help track and analyze these modalities in order to better understand Veterans’ use of them and to begin to characterize their perceived efficacy.
The Complementary and Alternative Medicine Registry will allow medical providers to enter information about CAM treatments that are being provided to Veterans. The system stores this information and allows program analysts and policy-makers to retrieve it in an intuitive and user friendly fashion. The system will be used to help guide the development of research and clinical guidelines relating to CAMs.
