|Adam P Beecham||Physics Lab - Teaching package||Helen Phillips||Alun D Preece||BSc|
|The physics lab - teaching package involves the design and implementation of a visual simulation of a number of scenarios that would typically be encountered in an a-level physics course. The emphasis of this project is on providing a way of visualising the actions of forces on objects and how these actions are reflected by the underlying equations. The package would be used as a teaching aid by an instructor to demonstrate the application of these equations, which would otherwise be difficult o...[more]|
|Adam Whitter-Jones||Base Station Selection in Mobile Networks||Stephen Hurley||P L Rosin||BSc|
|The aim of this project is to create an application to assist with the selection of Base Station Transceivers (BSTs) in a mobile network. The algorithm should attempt to vary the site cost and coverage to provide the highest Network Performance Measure (NPM) possible. The application has been written in VB.NET.[more]|
|Bechan A Carpenter||2nd Year Group Project Management tool||Helen Phillips||Dave Marshall||BSc|
|There are a significant number of software development project management tools available to assist businesses and other organisations but how easy are they to use? Are they flexible to use with a variety of development methodologies and process models? This project will require you to research and evaluate the software tools available within COMSC come up with recommendations for (IS) a suitable package that could be used within COMSC to assist students project manage their second year group ...[more]|

|George Nixon||UniNot.es - A Collaborative Note-Taking Website||Alia I Abdelmoty||Nick J Avis||BSc|
|Website to enable creation and navigation of collaborative documents disseminating shared events, such as lectures and conferences, where multiple attendees might benefit from a shared knowledge base cementing and propounding upon the content of a given presentation. It will focus on being an aid to undergraduate study, but should be adaptable to other use cases such as conferences/summits and more generic, structured knowledge propagation. Key to this will be providing a platform to associate t...[more]|

|Michael L James||"Twitter-style" App for Group Communication||Alun D Preece||Nick J Avis||BSc|
|The aim of this project is to allow communication to groups of individuals that share something in common, in an anonymous fashion. Communication can be taken place locally or nationwide. The objective is to design a central system that will transmit incoming messages through a Twitter-Style switchboard distributing their messages to the recipients hiding their identity from their recipients. Recipients will then be able to respond if they so wish. Such a system will encourage communication betw...[more]|
|Niall Adamson||Factors affecting COMSC performance in the National Student Survey & the National League Tables||Stephen B Mcintosh||Alun D Preece||BSc|
|The School of Computer Science and Informatics is under pressure to improve its ratings as reported under the National Student Survey, and the ranking it receives from national league tables. It is also trying to increase the number of students, especially those from overseas, it attracts, because of the impact of student numbers on the School\'s income.\\However, there is no common agreement on the factors affecting decisions and policy in these areas. \\This project will therefore aim to devel...[more]|

|Rhys Carpenter||Determining the Scope for Future Automation of Banking Processes||Stephen B Mcintosh||Irena Spasic||BSc|
|The majority of banks in today???s market have suffered in recent years from declining consumer confidence and negative attention brought about by the latest economic crisis. Through research of this problem and the selection of a suitable systemic approach, this project aims to identify the scope of, and determine the viability for, automation of a number of existing banking processes and make appropriate recommendations based on this. Since no two banks will be identical, a ???generic bank??? ...[more]|
|Stephen McQueen||2D, Multiplatform Space Invaders Game Using Microsoft XNA Game Studio||Frank C Langbein||Ralph Martin||BSc|
|Aims and Objectives
The aim of this project is to implement the world renowned arcade game \Space Invaders\. The objective is to create a fully functional 2D Version of the game for single player use.
I intend to implement 2 Dimensional version that will cover the main aspects of the game. I will create my own custom graphics and animations required for the gameplay. As per the software constraints of the software package this game will be written in C#.
|Tomas Basham||WiFi Environment Mapping with Arduino||Stuart M Allen||Chris B Jones||BSc|
|For this project I wish to construct an autonomous robot controlled by an Arduino board with the ability to collect data required to be used to determine the location of people. The idea is to place this robot into an unknown environment, such as the COMSC corridors and have it collect WiFi data including signal strengths and MAC addresses from the access points within the corridors at various points. From this data I wish to be able to determine the exact location of a person within the same en...[more]|
|Tom J Hancocks||Mapping a Physical Environment||Frank C Langbein||Dave Marshall||BSc|
|Project Aims & Objectives
Research and find ways of exploring a physical environment whilst building up a digital mapping of the environment - this will involve the use of a robot built with either an Arduino Kit or Lego Mindstorms.
Using the mapping built, determine the shortest path between two points - one point being the robots current location. Research different shortest path algorithms to find the most effective for the task. What kind of trade offs and compromises need to be ma...[more]|
