  E-Commerce Project : Business Plan / Online Storefront / Development of a WAP Site

Georgia Tech, Spring 2001: I worked on a business plan, within the context of the Management course, E-Commerce. Our project, AnytimeParking.com, plans to introduce the ability to pay for parking ahead of time through the Internet. Our service can be accessed online or through a WAP enabled mobile device. This service allows drivers to save time wasted searching for a spot and for those who plan ahead of time, it provides an added convenience. AnytimeParking.com's mission is to provide conscientious consumers with the security and reliability of having a parking space secured in advance.

I created the back-end, using a Microsoft Access database, and developed the website with ASP language to interact with it. This online storefront includes a login procedure, a registration process, personnalized pages, a quick survey, a guestbook, and a tell-a-friend. Co-branded pages have also been created to show the integration of our pages within a partner's website.

I developped a WAP version of the website, using Phone.com's Software Developer Kit, UP.SDK™, which is the leading solution for creating WAP 1.1. This freely available UP.SDK contains the tools and interfaces necessary to create applications for the wireless Internet. UP.SDK includes the UP.Simulator software, available for Windows and designed to accurately simulate the behavior of a variety of Internet-enabled handsets. This WAP site is connected to the MS Access Database, using ASP language again. The user can retrieve his billing information and proceed to the purchase. The transaction is stored in his previous transactions, accessible via the website.

  Database Project : Microsoft Access Database with its web interface / ASP Development

Georgia Tech, Spring 2001: I worked with 4 other teammates on a project for DirectMoving®'s website. We developped a moving planner tool, with extended functionalities. This tool displays according to the user's settings all the tasks to be completed before departure and after arrival in a new home. A list of customized links is also provided to the users.

DirectMoving® provided us with a concise set of requirements, giving us a certain degree of freedom. We had to work on the logical design (E-R Diagram) and then the implementation of both the MS Access Database and the web interface with ASP language. This tool includes a login procedure, a registration process, personnalized pages...

  Database Management Systems : Data Mining

Georgia Tech, Spring 2001: Data Mining is the process for the non-trivial extraction of implicit, previously unknown and potentially useful information such as knowledge rules, constrains and regularities from data stored in repositories using pattern recognition technologies as well as statistical and mathematical methods. Data Mining helps to predict future trends and behaviors, allowing businesses to make knowledge-driven decisions.

  Fiber Optic Networks : Fault Management in Optical Networks

Georgia Tech, Spring 2000: In order to satisfy the increase of demand in communication within the last decade, researchers have to focus on new technologies and on new means of communication to ensure the quality of services required by clients. Optical solutions for communication networks quickly appear to be cost effective and to offer high bandwidth. As network solutions developed their complexity grows to a point where it can no longer be considered, managed as a single entity: the concept of layered network raised from this evolution as the best solution.

A point was of particular interest to us: Fault Management. We studied how failures are managed in multi-layer network. Our study included an introduction to the Network Management, an analysis of the Fault Management, an overview of the procedures and protocols, and different issues.

  Networks & Telecommunications : ATM Architecture

ENSEA, Fall 1999: With another teammate, we simulated a LAN ATM network with OPTRAN LearnATM Software. We had to analyze the characteristics of different services and then propose an ATM architecture for the network of the ENSEA. The report includes a description of the ATM technology, an overview of ENSEA's network, the measurements, and our conclusions.

  Networks & Telecommunications : CDMA Project

ENSEA, Fall 1999: I worked with a classmate on this project on CDMA technology. We described in our report the different methods of Multiple Access such the SDMA, TDMA, FDMA and CDMA. We studied the codes used in the CDMA, specially the Amour Codes of G. Giannakis. Our measurements and conclusions are also included in this term paper.

The Report is available in PDF Format in French

  ARES : International Competition of Robotics

ENSEA, Spring 1999: I worked, during a year, as part of a student team on the conception and development of an autonomous robot, within the context of the International Competition of Robotics.

The robot had many objectives, as monitoring its trajectory, picking balls and sorting them. All of the robot functions were connected to a PC motherboard through a network which is named Controller Area Network (CAN). The function of this network is similar to the I2C Network. Our PC was powered by Linux, because this OS allowed us to program all the functions in C++.

This experience was very beneficial, since I acquired a lot of knowledge on the CAN bus, microprocessors and Linux. It was the occasion of working in a team and learning project management.

International Competition of Robotics

  FPGA Design

ENSEA, Fall 1999: This project consisted of the design of a digital system and its development. We studied the management device of traffic lights on a crossroad. We used the FPGA technology to implement the circuitry.
