The following is a brief list of our projects in a variety of different fields:

Drillog - Control system for drilling machines

The Goal:

With piles drilling machines installed on tractors, the operator is required to conduct close tracking throughout the drilling to ensure drilling is leveled and control the drilling depth, this requires the tractor operator to get out of the tractor every few minutes and perform the required inspections, or to employ assistant that will made the measurements for him.

The Solution:

In this project we developed a computerized system that provides the operator with all the required data directly into the cockpit, thus saving the need to perform manual measurements and inspections.

We’ve designed and built a circuit board (PCB) that connects to multiple sensors assembled on the drilling machine, developed Android app that provides feedback to the operator from the cockpit, the communication between the application and the sensors is done via Bluetooth, which greatly simplifies system installation (no need to perform additional wiring).

Additionally, a project management module helps the operator to efficiently track the project progress in the field, get valuable statistics (average drilling speed, total quantity and depth of all the piles in the project etc.) and more.

Solar Tracking System

The Goal:

We have been asked to provide a system that will track the Sun location at any given time, and operate an array of engines which direct the solar panels to the optimum angle towards the Sun, in order to increase energy production efficiency with the same amount of panels.

The Solution:

For this project we’ve developed a dedicated computer that calculates the Sun location in the sky at any given time (based on astronomical calculations), and using GPS coordinates can calculate the optimal angle of the panels.

In order to control the mechanical system we’ve installed a digital level on the panels and external relays unit that can turn the engines on and off as needed.

The computer calculates the angle of the Sun and operates the engines in order to set the panels to face the sun in the optimal angle at any given time.

To allow easy control and monitoring, we’ve developed an Android application that connects to the main computer using Bluetooth and allows full control and monitoring of the entire tracking system, additionally, we also produced designated box with some buttons and led indicators to allow manual operation.

The developed computer improved the efficiency of the solar system and the energy production increased by approximately 30% to 40%.

We have been asked to provide a video signal analysis module that will provide information about the content that appears inside the video, such as face and object detection, tracking of "interesting events", close-ups, long shots, the kinds of movements occuring in each scene and more.

The Solution:

We’ve developed a video analyzing system. The system architecture is built in the form of plugins which allow adding additional analysis tools. The system automatically divides the video into scenes and different shots and provides information about what is happening in each scene or shot. We've also embedded advanced technologies for face detection and face recognition which allow us to track people even between different scenes, as well as other technologies such as smiles detection, torso, close-up, audio analysis, and many more.

Interactive floor based play kinect with his

The Goal:

In a well-designed children library, we have been asked to provide a Flash game that will allow children to build their own "worlds" and then play in these “worlds”, the children can build the “worlds” using multiple computer machines, and when the games are built they then projected on the library floor and the children can play the game using Kinect camera. Graphics, animations and the storyboards were provided by the client. We had to build a mechanism that will enable saving the worlds and move them between the different machines, and developed an integration interface between the Kinect camera and the Flash Player.

The Solution:

We’ve created a saving mechanism that enable to keep all the meta-data of the worlds in XML files, load them into the primary projection machine, play automatically and delete the files at the end of each game. Additionally, we’ve developed an integration interface with the Kinect camera and can sends the data directly into the Flash player as normal mouse commands, allowing children to play only with their body movements, without the need for mouse or keyboard.

Tomcar Dashboard

The Goal:

On a custom SUV (Tomcar) with a two-stroke engine that does not provide any indication systems for vital information and other metrics such as engine temperature, rpm (touring engine) speed meter, battery gauge, engine hour’s counter, etc.
We have been asked to provide a solution to provide this vital information in real time and save all metrics history and measures for engine performance optimization.

The Solution:

In order to provide the required data we’ve developed several unique sensors and remodeled other sensors to provide the relevant information.

To display information to the user we’ve designed several different dashboards to support various mobile devices (Windows CE + Android). The dashboards comes with several different designs (day, night, sports, etc.).

All metric data is recorded and maintained in a local database that allows in-depth analysis of the various metrics for optimization and engine tuning.

Integration system for third party software

The Goal:

As a part of a larger project, we had to integrate a broadcast management system and an advertising management system. On the one hand the integration interface should be able to exchange data with the broadcast system, while on the other hand it is not possible to open direct access to the system database. The interface should allow adding and updating titles in the broadcast system, transfer of advertisements and commercial blocks as broadcast playlists, audio files transfers, etc., as well as reading data  from the broadcast system and produce actual as-run reports.

The Solution:

Since it was not possible to get direct access to the database of the broadcasting system, we had to develop an interface for data exchange using XML files. For that matter we’ve created a Watch Folder mechanism that able to track and understand when new files arrive or are updated. All files were passed through a dedicated parser we’ve developed that extracts the relevant data and writes it into the database.

For the audio file transfer we have developed dedicated plugin to the system which is able to modify the file and move it to the predefined place according to system requirements.

To get feedback from the playout system and embed them within the main reports system, we have developed a dedicated ASCII Parser for decoding ASCII files.

Interactive trivia game

The Goal:

In this project the client asked us to upgrade an existing system. This is an interactive Trivia quiz game written in Adobe Director over 10 years ago. The game consists of a central server and 10 clients allowing multiple users to compete in Trivia game (i.e. all clients need to be synchronized between them), while at the end of each game the first 3 leading players are declared. The game was designed as a TV game show and operates using a dedicated button board attached on LPT.

The client wanted to add Arabic support to the game and several other functionalities, but the code of the original game was not found, the client was able to extract graphics from the existing game but needed to rewrite the whole game in order to implement the required functionalities.

Additionally, a Central Entertainment System installed on site had to controls the whole complex (lighting, multimedia, etc.), and we’ve been asked to integrate with this system to allow it full control over the game.

The Solution:

Since there was no source code we had to rewrite the whole game from scratch. The decision was to write the game based on Adobe Air which raised additional challenges such as interfacing the external buttons (connects via LPT), and synchronizing the clients (all users should see the same question each round). To achieve this, we’ve developed a TCP server that keeps track of all clients, syncing them and keeps track of the scores of any client to determine the 3 first places. Additionally the server is communicating with the central control system and getting commands from it over UDP.

To receive the commands from the external buttons we’ve developed dedicated ANE (Adobe Native Extension) which scans the LPT mode and can send commands to the game as regular ActionScript.

Technologies:

Game developed with Adobe Air and ActionScript 3.0, Server system developed with Adobe Air, ANE developed in C++ and ActionScript. Development of TCP-based sync mechanism, developing integration interface to central control system based on UDP.

Scheduling and optimization engine to clusters of commercials.

The Goal:

Media organizations and broadcasters are constantly required to fulfill various requirements from different advertisers. On the one hand, advertising agreements can be signed for short or long terms, different advertisers put different scheduling requirements (what days, times, groups, rotation between different versions, etc.) and they all make changes during their campaigns. Broadcasters must fulfill these requirements while maximizing air time utilization and maintaining profitability.

The Solution:

Development of a scheduling engine based on advanced optimizations and decision-making algorithms. The system makes sensible decisions and performs automatic scheduling of advertisements, fulfilling the requirements of all advertisers while maintaining broadcaster’s interests to maximize air time and therefore maximize revenues. The engine takes into account all the requirements of the different advertisers, the broadcaster itself, rules and regulations and other settings, and performs auto-prioritizing so that each advertiser gets what he wanted without interrupting other advertisers and without exceeding regulations settings (not to exceed the allowed break length, not to place Pepsi after Coca-Cola, not to place 2 commercials with same announcer, not to place religious advertisers on sensitive days and holidays and more).

Broadcast video system-files + live

The Goal:

Deliver a system for video playback, allowing playback files from any format, and combining live sources within the playback sequence. Video should output to SDI interface, while live source should be capturing using SDI interface as well. The existing SDI interface does not allow the use of Input & Output simultaneously from the same interface, and it was not possible to install more interfaces on same machine.

The Solution:

To overcome the limit of the video interface we’ve developed a dedicated driver interface that overrides the limit and allows us to Input & Output simultaneously and independently, this done by transferring the video streams between different processes on the same computer, after we’ve overcome the interface issues we’ve developed the playout system which is now capable of playing video files as well as live source integrated within the same playlist, while the live source comes from the interface input and playing back to the interface output with added CG graphics and Overlays.

Technologies:

C++ and MFC, Windows Services, DirectShow

Navigation and control system for mm (powered parachute)

The Goal:

In this project the client came to us after the project had reached a dead end due to inability to interact with an external GPS receiver.

It faced a number of challenges:

Number of changes and modifications were made to the original PPG (powered paraglide), such as installing new engine with electronic fuel injection system and other specific sensors which did not complied with the standard systems, further more – PPG owners usually purchase and install the different sensors and gauges separately (altimeter, compass, speed etc.). The client wanted to centralize all gauges under one system and be able to customize the dashboard layouts, extract essential information from the engine and other sensors, as well as navigation system according to a flight routes maps.

The Solution:

To provide accurate indications about the engine and other flight data, we’ve built a system that connects to the engine computer and also contains several other unique sensors (such as a pair of EGT - Exhaust Gas Temperature, barometric altimeter, magnetic compass, gyroscope, etc.) and a full dashboard interface.

The outcome is that now instead of several independent components, we’ve installed in the PPG a touchscreen that provides a dynamic dashboard which allows the client to easily assemble his dashboard, the system provides more valuable information and more accurate than the original components (such as magnetic based compass or barometric based altimeter rather than GPS based indicators) and provides real-time alerts. Additionally, we also developed and implemented a full navigation system that includes a detailed flight path map which allows flight paths planning in advance and recording real-time flight paths.

Technologies:

Software development in C++ and MFC, building electronic circuits for processing and interpreting information from various sensors and stream them to the central system, developing an external GPS receiver interface (using STANDARD Serial protocols)

We’ve been asked to provide a centralized Web-based report system that can pull data from SQL databases, the reports should be interactive and dynamic and allow the user to change various parameters on-the-fly (such as filtering, sorting, grouping, pivots, etc.)

The Solution:

We’ve built a centralized report portal based on SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services), we’ve designed several report templates while each template can get various different parameters that controls the structure and design of the report, the data aggregation and more. For this project we’ve develop several unique functions that extend the basic capabilities of the SSRS system and allow to change the structure of the report and on the client side (instead of in the server-side).

We also authored many SQL queries to analyze the data and transfer it to the reports.

Users can connect to the system through Internet Explorer (which eliminate the need of local installation), generate a various reports, while on each report they can perform further adjustments such pivots, grouping, filtering, sorting, Drilldowns, etc., as well as exporting reports to several different formats (PDF, Excel, Word, HTML, CSV, XML, etc.)
