Educational Applications

MSc Thesis: "Real Time System for Face Detection" . Surpervisor: Constantinos Pattixis
Abstract:
The purpose of this project is to recognize in real-time the emotion of a person’s face. The person might be recognized as happy, sad or normal. The system runs on a server which is hosted by University of Cyprus and a web page was created to represent the data of the recognition process to the users. The idea behind is that a web camera is being installed on a room, streaming video at real-time and capturing frames every 30 seconds. The frames are stored into the server. A face detection algorithm (Viola Jones) checks on the specific frames if a there is a person or not. If there is, the algorithm detects that person and creates a border along the face. The new frame is then stored in the server and all details about that image are stored on the website as well


BSc Thesis: "Semi-Simulator for RFID Technology". Superivisor: Ioanna Dionysiou
Abstract:
The aim of this project is to develop a simulator for the RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology. The purpose was to develop this simulator in order to secure the University Of Nicosia Library. This project contains software that simulates all the actions that can be made inside the Library. Basically some of the actions are to request and provide permission of items inside the room The software supports two group of users being the administrators and students. Administrators have the control of all the tasks that can be made inside the environment, and students are the entire students of the University of Nicosia. This project was built in Microsoft Visual Basic.net to provide an attractive and flexible Graphical User Intrerface. The database was built in Microsoft Access 2007 in order to communicate with the simulator and keep track of all actions being made.
