TempleTrans Voice to Voice Translator

The Voice to voice translator application on a mobile device is the idea of translating voice from one language to another by using Cloud Computing technology. First, the application records the user’s voice in a selected language and uses the Cloud voice recognition service to transfer the voice to a text. The text is translated to a desired language in a text format by another Cloud service. Then the application calls a text reader on the Cloud to read the translated text and plays the sound for the user.

GPS Beacon

GPS Beacon, is a GPS enabled app that automatically senses current location and displays that information to the user. The user has a list of saved locations that is automatically queried, based on current location, in order to find the details associated with this location. That information is then shown to the user. This program is designed to be convenient and easy to use for the user. It can be modified to be used for general social networking purposes, or, it can be useful as a safety feature for broadcasting the current location of children, elderly, etc. to anyone that may be concerned for their safety.

Controlling a Service Robot Using Windows Phone

The idea behind the project is to create a system for controlling a service robot with a mobile Windows Phone. There are two primary objectives of this project. The first one is to create a user-friendly graphical command interface on the phone side that represents an intuitive and efficient way for a user to issue basic movement commands to the robot. The second objective is to overcome the location barrier. The user does not necessarily need to be close to the robot in order to connect to it and issue the commands.

Septa Bus View Windows Phone App

This application allows users to pick a SEPTA bus route and find out where buses are in realtime. It is designed to be used when someone wants to catch a bus, but is unsure of the schedule and wants to see how far away the bus is. It can also be used by someone who does know the bus schedule since the busses tend to be late and rarely run on schedule.

Thumb: A Real-Time Resource Information Sharing Application over Mobile Phones

Information sharing plays a significant role in human daily life. With the development of the Internet and applications over it, we share almost all kinds of information in a much wider space and time scope that we never had. However, when it comes to sharing information about resources which are available in an instant manner and expire in a very short time, such as the cases in carpooling, train ticket resale and shortterm discount information, the Internet is not that all-powerful. On the other hand, we have witnessed the rapid development of smart mobile phones over recent years, and which is gradually reshaping our way to learn and communicate. To the best of our knowledge, instant resource information sharing systems have not been available in this new environment. In this work, we develop and demonstrate Thumb, a system aiming to leverage the new functionalities of smart mobile phones and the Internet to allow users to share instant availability of resource information, especially for resources with extreme short life time.
