Roommates Project

Department: Computer Science

Group Members: Carlos Csiszer, Brooke Gallagher, Daniel Katz, Madeline McCann, Trinity Sheppard, Cristian Taveras

Client: Kurtis Watkins (Stevens Residence Life)

Advisor: Prof. David Klappholz

Cybersecurity Advisor: Prof. Sven Dietrich

Project Description: Students about to enter college who intend to live in dormitories are often paired with incompatible roommates. The purpose of this project is to develop a software system that will aid students in avoiding this sort of problem. Students about to enter Stevens -- or upper class students about to request dormitory rooms -- will be invited to take web-based compatibility-related surveys, surveys developed through the use of focus groups of both freshmen and upperclassmen who live or have lived in dormitories; the results of the surveys will be used to suggest potential matches to entering students, and the system will then enable them to communicate with one another by email; once students have made their decisions, the system will enable students to forward them to Residence Life, the Stevens office that operates the dormitory system.

Smart City Project

Department: Computer Science

Group Members: Roy Bahian, Sean Maxon, Nor Rabi'ah Mohd Nawari, Michal Rojas, Brian Seo, Daniel Sherry

Client: Prof. Ali Mostashari

Advisor: None

Cybersecurity Advisor: Prof. Antonio Nicolosi

Project Description: The concept underlying smart city software is to provide residents a way to interact with their city via their mobile devices in order to foster sustainable living, better governance, efficient use of city services, and ultimately a higher quality of life. IBM has invested a good deal of capital in smart city software around the world. Cities such as Singapore and Amsterdam are already making great strides toward attaining recognition as smart cities. The initial purpose of the Smart City project is to develop a mobile application that collects data that Hoboken residents seek on a daily basis and displays it in a manner that allows them to interact with their city in a new way. The final product of the Smart City project will be a generic platform that any city can easily adapt to its own use.

Study Plan Project

Department: Computer Science

Group Members: Katelyn Kasperowicz, Muhammad Ras Ab Rahim, Raphael Salas, Ucchista Sivaguru, Nabilah F. Yahya

Clients: CS Undergraduate Advisors

Advisors: Prof. David Klappholz, Prof. David Naumann

Cybersecurity Advisor: None

Project Description: The statements of the requirements for undergraduate degrees in Computer Science and Cybersecurity are far more complex than the statements of the requirements in any other major at Stevens. (See http://www.stevens.edu/compsci/undergrad/bs_faq.html and the various linked web pages for details.) As a result, transfer students, students who fail one or more courses, and students who fail to take required courses with long forward prerequisite chains early enough often have trouble constructing schedules that allow them to graduate when they wish to. The Study Plan Organizer will be a web application that allows advisors and students to streamline the process of constructing individualized schedules of courses, schedules that will enable the students to graduate in the desired numbers of semesters and will, as a result, help reduce errors, and the stress that advisors and students regularly go through.

Autism Teaching Suite Project

Bayonne Economic Opportunity Foundation (BEOF) CMS/Website Project

Hoboken Transportation/Parking Dashboards Project

ID8 Marketing and Sales Tool (IMAST) Project

OpenMRS Project

RescueMe Android Phone/Tablet Project

Rip Current Tracker Project

XIPRR (Experience-Informed Project Risk Reduction) Project


Autism Teaching Suite Project

Department: Computer Science

Group Members: Kirill Marants, Jameson Mortimer, Jeff Cochran, Simon Sidhom, Jamison Andaluz

Client: Lynn Marentette, School Psychologist

Advisor: Prof. David Klappholz, Prof. George Kamberov

Project Description: The purpose of this project is to develop a software suite that will assist in the growth and education of teenagers and young adults with autism. The main feature of the suite is a "conversation wheel" teacher’s aide, which displays text and multimedia content inserted into the system by the teacher. The suite will also allow for extensibility through the introduction of stand-alone mini-games, which are to be dynamically loaded at runtime. The project will include the development of a framework by which current and future developers can make modules recognizable by the suite. The suite will be accessible by students on school computers, allowing them to play mini-games, and upload work. A mobile version of the suite will also be accessible through a web browser. Teachers will be able to view student progress and files, as well as prepare lessons using the conversation wheel. In the classroom, the suite will use SMARTBoard® technology and touchscreens for input, to increase the ease-of-use of the software. Most importantly, the suite will be developed with autistic students in mind, drawing upon previous autistism centered games, teaching devices, and articles - and for a client who works with autistic teenagers and who meets with the team once a week to keep the software's design on track.

Bayonne Economic Opportunity Foundation (BEOF) CMS/Website Project

Department: Computer Science

Group Members: Jamie Brabston, Rachel Lamontagne, Eriberto Garcia, Michael Weiss, Tim Nix

Client: Ana Quintela, Director of Bayonne Economic Opportunity Foundation

Advisor: Prof. David Klappholz

Project Description: BEOF needs a new website and content management system because the current one is static, and, therefore, doesn’t automate workflows that could be done by a dynamic website. The new website will allow the general public to access current information about the programs being offered and to apply from home. An HR-like intranet page will also be created on which BEOF employees will be able to post documents and forms for employees. Appropriate employees will also have access to application information that is submitted though the Internet website and will be able to approve or deny applications there.

Hoboken Transportation/Parking Dashboards Project

Department: Computer Science

Group Members: Jonathan Shoff, Drew Michel, Michael Lee, Orie Steele, Piotr Lupinski

Client: Ian Sacs, Director of Transportation for the City of Hoboken

Advisor: Prof. David Klappholz

Project Description: The City of Hoboken and more specifically the Department of Transportation, has various data points from parking enforcement to the use of the city's public transportation system. This project involves the development of a much-needed consolidated administrative dashboard. The dashboard will serve as the director's eyes into the various activities his department is responsible for. For example this system will enable him to find out the number of parking tickets issued in a given period on a given portion of a street, as well as numerous other activities within his department's purview.

ID8 Marketing and Sales Tool (IMAST) Project

Department: Computer Science

Group Members: John Scire, Greg McLeod, Caroline Amaba, Michael Hegadorn, Nirmal Rajan, Ryan Gavin

Client: Dr. Gerrit Kamp

Advisor: Prof. David Klappholz

Project Description: ID8 Systems is a web-based collaboration system for idea management. ID8 users can submit ideas that they believe will benefit their organizations/companies. Within a virtual stock market, ID8 allows users to invest in each other's ideas using an artificial currency. ID8 brings the most valuable ideas to the forefront in order to determine which ones are best for the organization/company to pursue. ID8 Marketing And Sales Tool (IMAST) is a customized, redesigned collaboration of current marketing and sales tools already in place with the ID8 System. In place of the current tools, IMAST will provide modules for pipeline management, customer management, blog management, and e-mail management. The goal of IMAST is to create a unique system for ID8 with the functionality that the company needs from each of its existing systems, and that the IMAST integrates with the ID8 website.

OpenMRS Project

Department: Computer Science

Group Members: Frank Buonarota, Robert Williams, Alex Hieronymi, Peter Zafonte, John Horgan

Client: Prof. Dominic Duggan, Prof. Edward Friedman

Advisor: Prof. David Klappholz, Prof. Dominic Duggan

Project Description: OpenMRS is an open-source Java-based medical record system for use by clinics in developing countries. It is an established product that clinics already use to maintain records for each patient who has visited, but there is currently no way for patient data to be shared among clinics. The goal of this project is to modify OpenMRS to allow clinics to transmit patient data to other clinics, while enforcing a strict process involving patient consent and audit trails. The confidentiality of patient information is of the utmost importance. Therefore the model of this system will be peer-to-peer, never storing patient data in a central repository and never initiating a transaction involving a patient's personally identifiable information unless that patient's explicit permission is given. (Co-client Prof. Edward Friedman has done significant work on provision of health care in Central Africa.)

RescueMe Android Phone/Tablet Project

Department: Computer Science

Group Members: Richard Craparotta, Michael Carrano, Joseph Schwarze, Matthew Mautone, Mengting Guo

Client: Prof. John Keating III

Advisor: Prof. David Klappholz, Prof. John Keating

Project Description: Earthquakes and mine disasters are quite common, especially in certain parts of the world. In both cases people are often trapped under rubble, and cannot communicate with potential rescuers, even if they carry cell phones - because cell phone signals often do not penetrate rubble. Frequently victims' only hope for alerting rescuers to their presence is to make loud (percussive) sounds, for example, by pounding on the collapsed rubble or by blowing an emergency whistle. On the RescueMe Phone victims type messages, identifying themselves, their numbers, location, etc., into the phone; the phone translates the typed messages into percussive patterns; on the receiving end, potential rescuers punch a key each time they hear a noise/percussion, and their RescueMe Phones or Tablets decode the victims' messages. The RescueMe Tablet will also be used to coordinate information gathered from various percussive messages and to communicate it to central rescue administrators so that the latter may use that information to plan and coordinate rescue efforts.

XIPRR (Experience-Informed Project Risk Reduction) Project

Department: Computer Science

Group Members: Abhijit R Amin, Chris Hamann, Max Grifka, Joshua Stout, Kai-Po Hu

Client: Lee Fischman, Galorath Inc.

Advisor: Prof. David Klappholz, Lee Fischman

Project Description: XIPRR (Experience-Informed Project Risk Reduction) is a community driven risk reduction tool designed for public use. Using the historical data of community submitted projects as well as public contributor and expert opinion, XIPRR will be able to assist in predicting possible cost overruns, miscalculations in project timeline estimation, and even total project failure. In order for this all to work, XIPRR requires both a willing community to submit project data and answer questions, and an algorithm that will combine these responses into results. The project’s goal is to build XIPRR from the ground up creating a functional, intuitive, and secure platform for people to contribute data which will ultimately lead future projects to success.
