samrat saha's Summary

While at DCI, I have worked on some of the most cutting edge applications involving a whole spectrum of software and custom hardware that are integrated to provide meaningful and engaging end-user experiences.

A brief list of clients/projects I have worked with while at DCI follows:

a) Jawbone: Was instrumental in developing an Android Tablet based solution that uses a PIC based custom Android Accessory to control two speakers using an Android Application. A home screen replacement app along with lock down features were developed as part of the solution. In addition a custom charging solution was developed to account for High Current charge needs for Android Tablets and USB limitations of 500mA during communication.
Deployed in >650 Best Buy's across the USA.

b) Custom Security Solution for the iPad: This is an active project at DCI and is currently undergoing field trials. I developed the communication framework for a custom iOS application as well as developed the firmware for the microcontroller that provides security facilities. This application and physical device are in process of patent protection. I am one of the four authors of the patent application.

c) Pepsi Social Vending Machine: This was a Vending Machine concept that enabled users to learn about the different drinks offered through rich media and enabled the purchaser to gift drinks to friends using SMS that may be redeemed at similar vending machines elsewhere. Users are also able to send video messages to friends that may be viewed at a remote vending machine. The concept was demonstrated nationwide by Pepsi, including at the SXSW festival. It was also demonstrated outside the US, most notably in the UAE.

Other Clients/Projects:

Intel
Subaru of America
Hyundai
Nissan/Infiniti
Toyota
Harley-Davidson

    I presented this topic at O'Reilly Media's Solid Conference in San Francisco, May 2014.

    This has been featured on O'Reilly Radar:

    Brief description follows:
    This is an introduction into the possibilities that Bluetooth 4 has opened up in terms of sensor integration, crowd-sourcing and mobile devices. It demonstrates that not everything that is potentially useful needs to be sexy. Something as mundane as garbage pickup can be optimized to be more friendly to the environment and raise community participation using a mobile device and a brief walk by.
