Autonomous Movement Framework Presentation at Uniforum

Thanks to all those who came out to the Uniforum meeting tonight. For those looking for a good group in the suburbs to learn about tech, I would recommend checking the group out on

Here are the two presentations and video reviewed during the night:


Summer 2016 BSMP IoT Prototype Projects – Intro by Professor Jeremy Hajek

The group from Brazil did an excellent job this summer on over 11 different projects ranging from cyber-security to IoT prototypes. Let me introduce the projects.

Autonomous Movement Framework for UAVs (uAMF)
This project successfully built and deployed hardware and software to manage the autonomous movement of UAVs based on GPS location. The goal was to be able to call a carrier drone to your location via a standard smart phone app and have a central server process the order, queue the order up, and distribute the order to a waiting drone. This was done using Pixhawk processor and 3DR Iris copters.

Lamp Sense
This project involves using the Phillips Hue Intelligent life platform to give lighting a 2 way purpose — to allow lights to be able to direct a person to a specific location.

Bluetooth Beacon
This project involved creating and utilizing Bluetooth LE in order to create intelligent beacons–useful for triggering location awareness in mobile applications.

Project S.L.A.M. (Solar based Location Awareness Module)
This project solves a problem of creating a sensor that will warn people in a perpendicular hallway, when a heavy door is about to open into the hallway. This project uses a sonic range finder and an Arduino Micro to handle the calculations. The system is also battery backed and solar powered.

Project Glass Charts
This project is using two pair of Google Glass and Android Chart Libraries in order to create real-time and voice activated graphs based on collected building HVAC data. The purpose is to give field engineers a tool that can help them supplement conditions and make informed decisions.

Project BatPack
This project will create solar power and battery backed apparel that supplements a user’s rear and peripheral vision. This is done by using sonic range finders and an algorithm for determining approaching bodies. The apparel and computers are small enough as to be embedded in normal clothing and items and the battery combined with solar panels allow for a full days use off the grid.

Project Glass ChartsProject Manhunter
This project is working on implementing research to test the hypothesis of leakage abuse attacks against searchable encrypted data. This will be done using an object based storage (S3 based) product called Walrus from the HP Eucalyptus private cloud software. The goal is to be able to identify commonly encrypted data stored on this cloud by looking at side channel leakage. Source:

Project Guest Pass
This system is investigating the ability to use GPU/PCI passthrough with Linux KVM to create self-service on-demand GPU clusters. They will be using commodity x86 processors and AMD Radeon GPU cards
running on Linux using the KVM virtualization platform.

Project Pykkon
This project is focused on creating a man-in-the middle attack on an iSCSI connection stream–with the goal being to be able to inject or remove data from a known file without disrupting the TCP connection.

Project Cyber Ghost
This project is researching the concept of using the DNS protocol and obfuscated DNS server entries as a command and control mechanism to send C&C malware traffic.

Project Window Latch
This project involves implementing confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation and availability on the standard Arduino Uno platform — ensuring that the data that was collected is the data that was sent.

Project BatPack – Solar Powered Tactile Augmentation for Visual Impairment Summer 2016 BSMP

Bat Pack
This project sought to create a solar powered battery backed backpack system that uses sonic range finders and vibrating motors to create a sensory aid system for peripheral vision. Code:

Project S.L.A.M – Solar Location Awareness Module BSMP Summer 2016

Project SLAM

This presentation created a system to detect an approaching body to a door and send a signal to the outside hall of that approaching person. This system had the additional requirement of being solar powered and battery backed.

Project Manhunter Side Channel Leakage Abuse Attack BSMP Summer 2016

This project was an implementation of a research paper – Side Channel Leakage Abuse, original thesis work by Dr. Jason Perry of Lewis University. And implemented on the HP Eucalyptus OSR object storage system.

Project Cyber Ghost – Using DNS as Malware C&C Summer 2016 BSMP

Project Cyber Ghost

This is a project that uses the DNS protocol and a DNS server to create an innocuous Command and Control system for malware.

Project Glass Charts – Google Glass HUDs – Summer 2016 BSMP

Project Glass Charts
This project used Google Glass in order to create real-time HUD charts. Using hands free devices and voice control we successfully found that this device and project could make a great impact on field workers needing real-time charted data. Special thanks to Val Scarlata who lent us one pair of Google Glass for development.
