Senior Projects Garner Awards at Spring 2004 Design Expo


April 2004

More than 100 Computer Science seniors exhibited their projects at the Spring 2004 Engineering Design Expo, held recently in the Integrated Teaching and Learning Laboratory. These students are members of twenty-two teams completing Senior Projects (CSCI 4308-CSCI 4318) this year.

Project Mayhem

A Department of Computer Science project was voted the best project of the expo, the "People's Choice", by attendees. The project, "Project Mayhem - A Location Based Reminder System", was developed for Boulder's Pensieve Software by Computer Science students

  • Kavita Agrawal
  • Phillip Dressen
  • James Gillespie
  • Benjamin Hoyt
  • Simone Nicolò

Project Mayhem extends the concept of handheld time-based reminders ("remind me to perform a task at a specified time") to location-based reminders ("remind me to perform a task when I am near a specified location"). The project combines a mobile phone user interface, implemented in Java, with a Global Positioning System, Yellow Pages address directory, a street address to physical coordinates mapping service and a Project Mayhem server to create the system.

More than 80 projects from throughout the College were exhibited at the expo. In addition to the People's Choice award, four Senior Projects each received "Best in Group" awards. This recognition was given by industry judges based on interviews with each project team, demonstrations of each project, and evaluation of each project's results by the judges. Winners of this award for Computer Science were

The Senior Projects course was taught by Bruce Sanders along with teaching assistants Martin Cochran, Graham Schelle and Jerry Sun.
