The following are some recent projects I have been working on in my free time…
“Flow-check” Aircraft Checklist App
This is a mobile app I threw together using Flutter. It is intended to be used in-flight in light GA aircraft. As you probably know, these aircraft are prone to being tossed around in turbulence. So, to reduce the physical and cognitive burden, touch/tap input is intentionally simplified, and speech feedback is leveraged heavily. It’s also designed to overlay your favorite EFB as a “Slide Over” window.
The following is a short demo of the text-to-speech feedback (turn up the volume):
Aircraft Health Tracking
The contour performance plots shown below are based on models derived from samples I’ve collected over the last year flying 93Q, a Cessna 172M. The models are used as a reference, in conjunction with the POH (pilot operating handbook), for flight planning and to predict aircraft health based on trends. I plan to develop ML algorithms trained against the flight performance data to further increase the health prediction accuracy.
OpenCV-based Human Filter for Security Camera Captures
I tried my hands at creating a custom human detector to automatically filter my security camera footage:
Node-RED Home Automation
Over the years, I have been automating and tracking stuff in my home. Node-RED is a great tool for wiring all these things together. Not only do I use it heavily at home, but have used it in past work projects as well.
