STUDENT PROJECTS
Capstone Teams - Spring 2017

Viacom​ 
​HSS Stream

Project Manager: Sheryl Carlson

Team Members: Pooja Patel, Dante Urso, Gustavo Palomino, John Sousa, Christopher De Leon
A group of services that enable co-viewing of an HLS stream / video.  Users can vote and alter the clips that show up in the video, but a group of users can take turns adding to the “playlist” of upcoming videos. The website or mobile application would include a list of channels that users can join by topics, say “political jokes”, “skateboarding”, or “music videos”.  In that chat room, the interface would be a shared video playing with a small number of users taking turns with the “remote control”.  All users in the same chat room are co-viewing the same video stream which is synchronized as best as possible.  Users can comment in real-time as things happen in the video.

Optimal Solutions Inc.
Andriod App for Rapid material identification using hand-held IR sensors

Project Manager: William Ruy

Team Members: William Ruys, Surfield Thomas Jr., Christian Basile, Andrew Wang, Joseph Biviano​
Process industries have a pressing need to assess the state of materials at each stage in their supply chains – starting with raw materials at a vendor location and ending with the finished goods at customer sites. Such assessments entail the measurement of material properties like chemical composition and physical properties. Today’s assessments (done in expensive analytical laboratories) are largely based on cumbersome, intermittent manual sampling, which is expensive, time consuming, and error-prone. This project addresses DOE’s interest in turn-key solutions advancing the use of HPC in manufacturing supply chains. Our innovative idea is to use ML (machine learning) algorithms running on HPC servers to process spectra signals gathered from handheld infrared sensors for rapid and frequent material identification/estimation in supply chains. Our overall objective is to bring to market a cutting-edge, material identification application which produces accurate near real-time reading.

NJIT
Organizing a Computer Graphics Tournament

Project Manager: Peter Germa

Team Members: Ryan Campanella, Kelliny Nasr-Kyrillos, David O'Grady, Shobitan Oladjide​
The Wealth from Health® program, utilizes nurses and non-clinical navigators to support, advocate for, and motivate chronically ill patients using an innovative points-driven financial rewards system. The voluntary program enrolls adults and children who have been diagnosed with one or more chronic disease who require outpatient care. To continue the goal of helping to manage and improve the health of the community, it is necessary to create and provide a new portal of access for patients; which we believe can be done by creating a mobile application. The goal for the application is to have one application with the power to replace the combination of several applications that are currently on the market. This can be completed by incorporating: Education center and activity center (with capability for rewards) while being secured.

Sun Tale Arts
Project Terraforming

Project Manager: Edward Conroy

Team Members: Alrashid Jamalul, Mohammad Omer, William McLurkin, Justin Szymanski​
The game takes place on a planet designated for colonization; you play as a robot under the United Earth Government who must explore the planet and its structures in order to determine whether or not the planet is habitable for human life.  Most of the gameplay will take place in the Terraforming Cubes which are cubes designed to analyze the data collected from the planet and determine if the planet is habitable or not.  The player will be able to rotate the cube in order to solve the puzzles within and unlock all of the terminals.  The player will also have to avoid obstacles and security measures which will try to prevent the player from getting to the terminal.

Maptimum
Campus Event Mapping

Project Manager: Yakun L

Team Members: Ryan Campanella, Adam Rathbone, Thomas Tu​
Our project is a platform that allows students to browse a list of campus events based on availability, popularity, and personal preference. We will have a class schedule which enables students to plan for the new semester or modify their current schedule. We also will offer a schedule viewer that will combine both classes and events for a more centralized and organized view.

On the administrative side, our project will provide an easy to use, easy to understand interface for clubs and organizations to publish and advertise their events to the students of NJIT. Furthermore, NJIT students who use our product will also be able to create personal events that they can share with either a selected few or the entire NJIT community.

We will create an institute only social network that both ties in many aspects of a student’s campus experience and allows school community to advertise campus events and broadcast announcements more efficiently.

The NJIT Personal Planner will be packaged as an Android application that will be downloadable (free of charge) to the NJIT student body. The app will include a campus map that will have interactive features based on the location of the user's device. Event notifications will appear in the form of augmented reality billboards that appear when your phone camera is facing a building or notable location within NJIT, allowing users to see what events are currently going on near them.

POWER LEAK

Project Manager:   Pious Kukreja

  
Power Leak will be a 2D platformer.  Unlike most games, where the player starts out weak and becomes powerful, the player will start off with a wider range of abilities and gradually lose them due to an illness.  Searching for a cure, the player must race against a time limit before their character passes away.  
There will be multiple procedurally generated dungeons for the player to explore in any order that they want.  Each dungeon will contain an item that could help the player overcome the handicaps from their illness (for example, a jetpack to overcome loss of ability to jump).  These dungeons will also bring the player closer to finding the cure.  

The game will have multiple paths depending on which dungeons the player decides to go through and what abilities they have found.  This will encourage multiple play-throughs as the player learns more about the game and the most efficient way to the goal.
  

TROOP MASTER

Project Manager:     Brett Aiken
 
 
Troop Master is a 2D Real-time Strategy game that is being developed using the Unity Engine. The game has a playable prototype with graphics and plenty of assets already available to us. Our team will create rapid prototypes based on user feedback to improve areas of the game including: user experience, user interface, procedural generation, entity AI, pathfinding algorithms, and quality of life. We will be working to create a Steam Greenlight page in pursuit of publishing the game on to the Steam platform. Team members will help to campaign on behalf of the game through various media. The project, if published, would help to boost the national ranking in Game Development for NJIT.
  
  

prIDE 

Project Manager:      John Moreira

  
An Online IDE designed with collaboration, real-time code editing, and Git/GitHub integration. Online IDE's today are often seen in a negative light because of the fact that they lack many of the features that make IDE's useful. Aside from lacking features, free online IDEs today also do not offer many tools which encourage collaboration between users, such as project sharing systems. We will create a complete online IDE with Git/GitHub integration, a chat system, real-time code sharing between users (in the style of a Google Doc), a sleek front-end, and support for multiple programming languages.
Though some online IDEs currently exist which provide collaboration between users and Git/GitHub integration, none of these products are currently offered for free because of their cloud-based design. Our solution to this problem is to provide users with a Node.js server application which can easily be deployed on the computer of a team leader, and can be connected to by their team members through our browser-based front-end. By bundling the back-end of our project as a small application rather than having to purchase dedicated servers, we can avoid the costs associated with the cloud-based approach, and provide our online IDE free of charge.
  
  

  
ACTION SHOOTER

Project Manager:       Mikhail Zharov


Action Shooter will be a first person 3D action game that will utilize a high level of player mobility and motion types which will culminate in effective traversal of a futuristic urban environment. Player movement will involve crouching, sliding, wall-running, grappling hook mechanics, flips, rolls and double jumps. Gunplay will alternate with martial arts moves and melee combat with an emphasis on hazard avoidance. Modular Equipment, possible skill trees and enemy and weapon variety will entice players to this crazy-mad theme park world. Ideally there will be various modes of play, including a story mode, an online multi-player mode, both of which might involve principles of cooperative play as a potential option.
