High Performance Electric Vehicle Shop
Created a CAN-bus digital-to-analog RPM signal converter for vintage tachometers with electric drivetrains
Technologies used: Programmed AVR embedded processor using C++ and hardware timers, designed circuit using GPIO and Op-Amps
Restored the system tachometer, speedometer, power steering, and check engine light on a previously gas-powered vehicle that was converted to electric by reverse engineering and mimicking the OEM CAN-bus signals
Created a battery monitoring iPhone app for electric cars built by EV West, as well as the accompanying on-board hardware and server-side communication. Using the app, electric car owners could check their car's state of charge, charge rate, voltage, and other battery statistics remotely from their iPhone.
Technologies used: Objective-C, Xcode Interface Builder, C, RS-232, PHP, MySQL
Upcoming Electric Paramotor Company
Designed and programmed the flight control unit for Para-Volt's debut electric paramotor, including the user interface to control the motor, the control unit on-board the motor, and the interface between the two.
Created a home "smart lights" system that allows users to control the lights in their house from their phone or computer, enable motion detection, schedule dimming or raising the lights at certain times, and automically lower or raise the brightness to account for changes in ambient lighting.
Each light was controlled by a Nordic nRF52832, equipped with a light sensor, motion sensor, and manual switch. A central Raspberry Pi controller hosted a Django web server to remotely control the lights and communicated with all of the Nordic boards over BLE.
I worked on the Django web server, increasing speed and robustness of BLE communication, and the AC dimming algorithm.
Built an iOS app for CalHacks 2018 that allowed users to browse local Craigslist and eBay listings with a card-swiping interface.
Worked primarily on the iOS app written in Swift and designed in Xcode Interface Builder, including both the backend that requests the APIs as well as the GUI.
Built an iOS music playing application that synchronizes with Dropbox for those that own their own music files.
Uses the Dropbox API to scan files in a user-specified music folder, detect which files are not downloaded or have changed on the server since they were last downloaded, and allows the user to download them to his device.
Scans the downloaded files, scrapes the included metadata (if any), and assembles a graphical music library for the user to browse, play, and queue her songs.
