My paper “Sensing the Environment through SpiderSense” has been accepted at the 4th Augmented Human International Conference in Stuttgart, Germany.
I will be presenting on Thursday March 7th.
“Recent scientific advances allow the use of technology to expand the number of forms of energy that can be perceived by humans. Smart sensors can detect hazards that human sensors are unable to perceive, for example radiation. This fusing of technology to human’s forms of perception enables exciting new ways of perceiving the world around us. In this paper we describe the design of SpiderSense, a wearable device that projects the wearer’s near environment on the skin and allows for directional awareness of objects around him. The millions of sensory receptors that cover the skin presents opportunities for conveying alerts and messages. We discuss the challenges and considerations of designing similar wearable devices”

ThermoWeather is a Weather Station made entirely in QML. The displayed data is polled from worldweatheronline.com. It is a project I made for the User Interface Design class. Custom Designed in Adobe Illustrator and coded in QML.
Features of ThermoWeather:
- Current conditions outside: temperature, humidity, precipitation, wind speed, wind direction, clouds coverage, visibility and weather description
- The predictions for the day: temperature min, max, precipitation, wind speed, wind direction, weather description
- 5 day forecast: temperature min, max, precipitation, wind speed, wind direction, weather description
- The current condition and forecasted weather is represented by graphic representation
- Displays the temperature and humidity inside the building (Because no sensors are available, this information is hard-coded)
- Supports changing the location
- Resolution of 1280×800
- Touch-screen compatible
- Multiple language support (currently supports 4 languages)
- Support for US/European system
- Displays weather alerts (the weather alerts are not real, but hard-coded)

For the Parallel Processing class I implemented a program that calculates the |Xk| in parallel using various parallel formulations.
