Abhishek proposal for gsoc 2014

  1. 1. GSOC 2014 Proposal for BuildmLearn NAME AND INTRODUCTION: Abhishek Kaswan I am a Third year student pursuing BTECH in Computer Science at Govt. Engineering College of Bikaner.I am originally from Churu City ( Rajasthan,India ). PROJECT INTRODUCTION : The idea is to build a mobile application which shows a list of all the sensors available in the device that can take live input from various sensors already available in a Mobile and display in a visually appealing manner. A very important aspect of the project is to show them not as plain data but as concepts that can very well understand by anybody. The simplest real time visualization would be various types of 2-D graphs on which the value of sensor data / computed parameter could be plotted against time. PROPOSAL DESIGN: This Proposal for BuildmLearn intends to focus on providing live sensor data in simple visual form so that it is easy to understand for anybody. In this application there is a list of all available sensors in Android Smartphone. User can select sensor which is present in the list.User will be able to get data from the sensor with simple 2D graph.In this
  2. 2. GSOC 2014 Proposal for BuildmLearn application there is a ON-OFF button for each sensor because it will save power of phone. In this Fig. there is a list of available sensors.
  3. 3. GSOC 2014 Proposal for BuildmLearn this fig. shows Magnetometer. There is a ON-OFF button for sensor to save energy. It is simple 2D graph for Magnetic field with respect to Time. We know that default value of EMF around us is approx 49µT . So that we consider it is a Threshold value. When sensor data will exceed this value then it will sound beep-beep for alert.
  4. 4. GSOC 2014 Proposal for BuildmLearn There is a button to calibrate the sensor and also a option to save history of sensor’s live data.There are many more features for different sensors and it is easy to use. We can use sensors in our daily life like we can use accelerometer to detect a earthquake or we can use Magnetic field sensor as a Compass Or metal detector. So this app is useful in education and everybody’s life. AIM : During GSOC my tasks are:  To develop education application for students with usable interface so that they can use this application in various fields.  To maintain performance,responsiveness of application .  User experience should be on top priority.  Respect user expectations. IMPLEMENTAION: Getting data from inbuilt android phone sensors will be done by the sensorManager library provided by Android .There is a list of sensors from which live data will be taken:  Accelerometer  Magnetic Field Sensor  Sound Intensity Sensor  Temperature Sensor  Pressure Sensor  Proximity Sensor  Gyro Sensor
  5. 5. GSOC 2014 Proposal for BuildmLearn  Getting data from the sensors with the help of Android sensor framework that determine which sensors are available on a device as well as their capabilities.  Use Libraries to visualize sensors data in 2-D graphs:  Achartengine  AndroidPlot and  ChartDroid  Create event handlers for a variety of sensors to read and record values.  Use android.view.View because all user-visible controls are sub-classes of it.  Declare UI elements & application layouts in XML.The advantage of XML is that it enable us to better separate the presentation of our application from the code that controls its behavior.  To develop the activity, use Eclipse IDE with ADT.
  6. 6. GSOC 2014 Proposal for BuildmLearn TIMELINE: April 25 - May 19(Community Bonding Period)  Further discuss the activity ideas with the mentor  Final list of activities to be implemented under this application  Study documentation on Android Sensor libraries and API  Setting up the development environment. May 20 - July 15  Start Coding  Extracting live sensor data  Building 2D graph design for each sensor  Code integration of these two activities  Report the work July 16 – August 15(Pencils down)  Designing UI for all size phone  Increase stability of app  Code Integration of both activities with UI  Testing and Bug fixes  Documententation  Final Release CONTACT INFORMATION:  Email Address :  Contact Number : +918559960007
  7. 7. GSOC 2014 Proposal for BuildmLearn ABOUT ME:  I am a FOSS enthusiast & familiar with FOSS from 2 years.  I have no commitments during summer.  I have working knowledge of Java,Html,C++ ,Visual basic & Python.  I take Summer of code as an opportunity to get engaged with BuildmLearn Community as contributor and continue this association even after Gsoc.  I would not just based my being the right person for the task on my proficiency in programming, but also on the understanding of logic that will make things work, a prior knowledge and understanding of what the mobile development project explains and also the readiness to contributes in terms of code and innovative ideas for the betterment and completeness of the task.  I have worked on coding projects in Visual basic and I am very excited about this opportunity because I worked hard in this week. I am willing and ready to extend the amount of time I input into the development of this project.I’ll give my best.  I would love to be contacted if any part of this proposal is not clear to you.  Thank you for considering this proposal and for your time.
