Projects

SCU Tele Ops(Link)

– Present

This project is in cooperation with the Robotic Systems Laboratory at Santa Clara University with Dr. Chris Kitts, and Mike Rasay. The main goal of this project is to develop a web-based interface that will allow users from any modern browser to control autonomous or semi-autonomous mechanical agent (robots) that fall within sensor-based observing systems from the Robotic Systems Laboratory and other SCU-affiliated laboratories/warehouses.

C Flat

This is a Computer and Software Engineering Senior Design Project that converts analog music, played from actual instruments, and transcribes that digitally into an authentic-looking piece of sheet music. The main goal of this project is to develop an embedded system that can outperform costly alternatives on the market by being able to transcribe multiple notes being played at the same time, along with multiple instruments. This differs from available alternatives in that they work best with a single clear note being played at a time.
