Gonna start a new site / blog for my capstone project.


When gen ideas, use morkup and demostration on the image

Email asking for supervisor and idea

Hi Prof David Lowe ,

I am current ICTA student working on the phone tracker project, and I would like to start my capstone next semester (S 2010),

I have an real time project idea that is related to the ICTA phone tracker project,

1) I am wondering if it is a good idea
2) if you would like to be the supervisor for this project.

The Idea:

Using ICTA and ICTD’s real time phone tracker API, generate a Real Time, Animated, 3D Render of the phones that’s detected by the phone tracker system. The location of the phone is located by their PUD id ( id of the detection unit.)

This idea is not new, there is systems currently use to visualize twitter and global internet traffic, the links below have photos and video that illustrates my idea for the phone tracker 3D visualizer.

Possible use of such system.
Provide a “pretty” view of the phone tracker traffic
Provide a map view to for the admin to see the health of the phone tracker system (detected offline, no battery Etc.)

Started reading the student guide

A logbook or journal is used to record of the way of the project progress.

- planning
- design ( and resons)
- record of progress

It is my record and needs to be shown to my supervisor.

Need to maintain all the doc untill next sem’s week 4, both soft and hard copy.

Capstone Project Ideas

Capstone Project topics:
Project topics are typically either self nominated (ie. something you have been thinking about and want to pursue), or workplace nominated (ie. something aligned to your work responsibilities, often taking advantage of their resources/information/IP to deliver a project of value which is not your normal job), or perhaps nominated by a UTS academic (ie. staff frequently have project topics available which is aligned with the research interests). It’s your responsibility to develop this project idea with your supervisor – we don’t issue projects to you.
Further, please continue to monitor your email – there are already a few project opportunities for S10 from UTS staff which I’ll circulate very shortly.

Securing a supervisor:
As described in the Student Guide, it is your responsibility to secure a member of academic staff from UTS:Engineering to supervisor your project. This is also a requirement for ‘external’ or ‘industry’ based projects. You’ll need to use a document called ‘Appendix A’ to secure their agreement (signature) to undertake this roll. A new version of this form is presently being finalised, it will be released with the Spring 2010 Student Guide next week.

Web Site Dev

Pros, I know more about web than anything else.. This would have good project result.

I need Web Dev ideas..

  • Web interface to Visualize public data (rain fall, etc)
  • Visualize ICTA and ICTD’s phone tracker’s data
  • Uncle’s Photo upload and Printing site.

Help an Open source Project


Using ICTA and ICTD’s read time phone tracker API,

generate a 3D real time render of the data and phone that’s connected to the phone tracker system.
