CSE Capstone Course Description
-

PAK Mobile Sensing The Dependable Distributed
Networking Research Group, led b
y Professor Anish Arora at Ohio State, manages a
wireless sensor network testbed containing hundreds of mote
-
scale sensor devices. This
test

be
d, named Kansei,
is used by researchers around the world to create and validate
new protocols and applications.
As sensors become more commonly used in citizen’s
everyday lives, we would like to create mobile software that enables less
-
experienced
students and developers an opportunity to leverage small sensor networks for scientific
and educational pursuits. This
project involves creating mobile software that manages a
small group of sensor motes. The software will allow users to download applications to
sensor motes, retrieve data from sensor motes, and post the data to a cloud server. The
developers will not be

responsible for technical hurdles of downloading programs to the
sensor motes; the focus of the project will be in designing and creating the user interface,
managing the collected sensor data, retrieving lists of programs from the cloud server,
and posti
ng data to the cloud. This project is to design the “portal” module, the “array
manager” module that speaks to hardware will be created by another party. This project
offers experience in mobile application and cloud development that will be used at a
gr
owing list of partner institutions and schools. The source code will be released under a
public license; developers will be able to freely demonstrate their work in the future as
the project grows from these humble beginnings. One option for completing t
his project
is to port the existing web site and KG_PortalDB database, located at
http://kansei.cse.ohio
-
state.edu/

, to the Android OS; a second option entails developing a
native Android application from gr
ound
-
up to complete the requirements. The main
Kansei website uses web services with sell
-
defined APIs that may serve as a good
starting point for getting this project off of the ground. The application functions as
follows: A student logs into the appl
ication on a cellphone. The application lists the
student's running experiments, completed experiments, and configured experiments. The
student places wireless sensor motes near the cellphone and logged data points are
downloaded from the motes to the ce
llphone. The student retrieves a list of available
2


experiment programs from the cloud. The student selects an experiment program and it
is downloaded from the cloud to the cellphone. The student configures parameters for
the experiment and selects motes

to participate in the experiment. The cellphone
downloads the programs onto the motes when the motes are within wireless range or
connected via USB. The student initiates the uploading of collected sensor data to the
cloud. The student browses running
and completed experiments with their descriptions.
The software graphs collected data and offers an option to export data. The team will
have access to two graduate students and Prof. Arora for questions and feedback.

The basic idea behind this project is to develop a computer version of the Standard
Celeration Chart that is used to guide our instruction for students with autism. The
standard Celeration Chart is a sem
i
-
logarithmic chart where vertical lines represents
consecutive days for a total of 20 weeks on one chart, while horizontal lines represents a
frequency count (# of response per minute.). I would commit to meeting with students
weekly to guide this process

and the hope would be that we can create basic framework
for a program with easy input of data. We need to be able to input the following: Number
of corrects, number of errors, and length of the timing. The program should automatically
convert a data poin
t entered into a per minute frequency and plot it (bot corrects and
errors) on the correct day. As we have developed a basic working chart, we would like to
add important features such as trend lines for predicting future performances, slope of
learning/ch
ange, phase change lines/interventions, etc. There are also charts used to
record count per day, per week, per month or per year. These can easily be developed
once we have the basic chart complete. If we can create a user friendly chart, it would
have imp
lication for education, industry and even the medical fields. I have had
colleagues used this to plot data of blood cell count during chemotherapy to reliably
predict when a new chemo session could be started. I would like to take this to where we
can mark
et this through our company or a new start
-
up company. I see the potential for a
variety of commercial applications. Please let me know the next step, and I am looking
forward to working with OSU students and

faculty on this venture.

DigiClips is a media monitoring organization. Our clients are media relations personnel
from universities, government, and various industries. The primary goal of DigiClips,
Inc. is to deliver med
ia content to our clients within minutes of the content being aired
through different media delivery methods with the primary method being via the internet.
By delivering within minutes of air time over the internet, DigiClips, Inc. will create a
self
-
serv
ice method for clients to achieve timely planning and responses to public
relations (PR) concerns.

The project will provide a web search engine to capture stream and analyze television,
radio, social networks (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc), on

line newspapers,
magazines, blogs, etc. for general public and public relations executives for personal and
organizational use for media analysis.

The functionality is to provide through a key word search through close caption to match
and parse the close

caption to still pictures, click and play the video/audio of the segment
searched for and generate text reports.

Through our research we believe the application(s) should be written using C ++ for the
development of the extraction of closed caption from o
ff of the tuners, .net and SQL to
capture close caption along with video/audio and import into a time line into SQL
relational database, which will be the behind the scenes application. C# can be used for
the development of the website to provide the deliv
ery of the videos with closed caption
the end user.

The front end web site needs to be developed for end users to access their data. Although
DigiClips, Inc. does have preferences for the development of this application in the
previously mentioned language
s and database, the project team may find other methods
of development if the project calls for it.

The project team will be led by the owners of DigiClips, Inc. with all technical expertise
provided by an IT administrator with 20 years of experience.

The
project team will
have access to a development platform via VPN, which will include the hardware
necessary for development of this project.

Students involved with this project will gain valuable experience in working with video,
audio and text data with as
sociated state of the art technologies and real world web
application development.

Background:

Design & build a new AMEC drilling product selector to replace the aging, outdated
selector developed some years back i
n Great Britain. The current product selector was
developed by an outside vendor and updates are time consuming and costly. Based on
customer supplied application information, the product selector would recommend the
proper drilling products from the var
ious AMEC drilling products offered below:



TA



GEN2 TA



GEN3SYS



Deep Hole Guided TA



Deep Hole BTA



TA Structural Steel



Opening Drill



Revolution Drill



ASC 320

The current product selector only incorporates the first three AMEC products on the list
above . . .
TA, GEN2 TA, & GEN3SYS. The new product selector needs to not only
incorporate the products in the current selector, but also all of the newer products listed
above. The current product selector could be used as a guide for the new selector,
however, AME
C would welcome any fresh ideas that would enhance the attractiveness
and functionality of a product selector. Product selector should recommend at least a first
& second choice of drilling products, along with the required geometry, running
parameters, a
nd coolant requirements, to successfully resolve a customer’s application.
Product geometry, running parameters, and coolant requirements, for the various
products, has already been created by AMEC.


Project Description:

OSU students would work with AMEC

Application Engineers to create the various
product selection logistics needed to define the proper selection criteria for various
drilling applications. Build needed flow charts/decision trees. The OSU prototype
requirement would be in the form of a we
b based program to run on Smart Phones, Note
Books, & Internet. Program validation should be a joint effort between OSU students
and AMEC Application Engineers. The project could involve disciplines such as
Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering,

Computer Programming, Product
Marketing

Gordon GEE: Genomic Enrichm
ent Expert


CSE 762


Contact: Andrew D. Yates


We propose that a team of computer science students enrolled in the CSE 731:
Knowledge
-
Based Systems [7] to assist genomics expert Dr. Kun Huang[4] build an iPad
or other application around an expert system
for gene enrichment in the Systems
Medicine Laboratory at the Ohio State University Medical Center this Spring 2012
quarter.


Description


Gene enrichment analysis is the assignment of biological meaning to some group of
genes returned by some automated me
thod for the purposes of evaluating data mining
techniques or understanding the results of complex genomic studies. The Gordon GEE, or
Genomic Enrichment Expert, system helps automate this task by classifying gene sets
according to inference rules based on

the currently hypothesized related functions of the
genes. These classified results are then cached on a server for future review and presented
to researchers in an attractive visual interface.

5168 ventures



We are interested in disruptive ventures with the potential to change the world and we
are passionate about unleashing people’s potential.



We embrace the
Lean Startup

methodology


which treats business as both an art and a
science. Lean Startup believes that business
hypotheses

can be postulated,
quickly tested

through early
customer interactio
n and implemented via
minimum viable products
, and
rapidly it
erated

to develop
profitable business models before scaling
.



We have a unique position in the Brazilian market because of our partnership and
strong working relationship with
TC Global (Tsong Cherng)
. TC Global has 20+ years of
experience manufacturing, installing, and ser
vicing plastic injection molding machinery
and related manufacturing technologies. TC Global has thousands of loyal clients, a deep
understanding of the Brazilian industrial sector, and a wealth of experience, knowledge,
and training resources related to
plastic injection molding.



Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG)



Solve Brazil’s crippling shortage of qualified skilled labor and unleash the currently
unrealized potential of millions of people via employment.


“A study by the National Confederation of Industry last September
[2007] found that more than half the 1,71
5 [Brazilian] industrial firms
polled could not find the skilled workers they needed. Of those, 69
percent said the lack of a qualified work force resulted in inefficiency; 36
percent said it led to lower quality goods; and 25 percent said it made
acquirin
g or assimilating new technologies more difficult.”

Goals


#1

Connect job/skill seekers with the knowledge + experiences to both gain
meaningful employment opportunities and to empower them with the ability to advance
their career through lifelong learning.


9


#2

Connect companies with the qualified skilled workers

they need, to build capacity
within their existing workforce, and to empower them to effectively deploy their human
capital resources across their organization.



Hypotheses
(Lean Startup style)


#1

An online (web + mobile based) interactive learning pl
atform, using evaluation via
direct testing and background analytics, is the solution.


#2

An offline component of hands
-
on training, through partnerships or directly
executed by 5168 ventures, will play an important role.


#3

It makes most sense to fi
rst focus on careers related to plastic injection molding,
specifically machine operators and service technicians, because of the strong working
relationship with TC Global and ability to leverage its experience, knowledge, training
resources, and network.
