Home Page

Yesterday, team Aegis finalized their homepage design in HTML and CSS and are waiting on Tom Corona to put the finishing touches on the Java to allow the page to contain the Login and Sign Up boxes. Tom is using a feature called UI Binder, which allows him to combine the Java with the HTML code and put them onto the same web page. The InvenTeam also worked on coming up with the final layout for the future design of the website. In other words, they clearly laid out how all the pages will interact with each other and what pages different user accounts will have access to when logging in.

Aegis Campus Security

video
Aegis is a website that has a phone side and a security side. It is designed so that when college students are in danger, they can visit the website which will automatically direct them to the phone side. They can easily click the "Alert" button which will send the student's GPS location to the security side of the website and place them on a a map. Along with the GPS coordinates, security will also get a picture of the student and important information that will help them to safely find the student. Aegis eliminates the need for the Blue Light System by putting the Alert button in your pocket instead of having to run to an emergency button on a pole.

Shower Temperature Control Unit

The Shower Temperature Control unit is a device that can digitally control the temperature of your shower. The digital control has options for preset temperatures that allow the user to easily select favorable temperatures. In addition to a digital temperature control, the unit will cycle water back through the system while the shower is warming up to the desired temperature. This will eliminate water wasted while the shower is warming up to a temperature that the user wants.

Successful Meeting

The meeting today with Project Lead the Way founder Richard Leibich and Congressman Scott Murphy went very well. The InvenTeam members working on Aegis were able to present their idea and explained how they thought that using smart phones can help eliminate crimes committed on college campuses. Nick Florin, Chad Baker, Tristan Frey, KC Bianco, Tom Corona, and Tristan De Jesus led the way as they were the first group to present. Next, Mackenzie Knight and James Millar presented their idea of the Shower Temperature Control Unit and displayed the model that they created.

Scott Murphy & Richard Liebich

The InvenTeam has been rigorously preparing for a visitation by New York State Congressman Scott Murphy and Project Lead the Way executives. Along with these guests, Richard Liebich, the founder of Project Lead the Way, is coming in to see what the students in the Engineering Design and Development class are working on. All groups have prepared presentations about their projects and group Aegis has divided up their group to prepare for this meeting on Friday, February 4th. While we are getting our presentation ready, Tom Corona is continually working on the programming with Tom Hays at W.P.I. They are working on using UI Binder to organize the Java and HTML code together and placing the coordinates sent from the phone application onto a map widget.
