  • Developed a software solution to monitor meteorological conditions at hydropower plants.
  • Took part in the team that worked on the system of forecasting electricity production for several hydropower plants in the region.

Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) System

Led the development of an ETC system for motor vehicles in seven European countries and Abu Dhabi.

Based on the vehicle's position, the system monitors the trip through different locations and, at the end of the billing period, submits an invoice that is very similar to a mobile phone bill. The system had to follow different rules and billing systems depending on the region and country. Some parameters were: road, tunnel, bridge, with or without a trailer, size, and weight of the vehicle.

During this project, my task was to lead two teams totaling 16 engineers. While the first team developed a central billing system, the second team built a web application for the system administrators (back-office).

The most challenging part of this project was that the teams worked in completely separate sets of technologies with separately defined sets of development plans.

Ticketing System for a Manufacturing Company

Developed a system from scratch for the needs of a large multinational company that manufactures industrial tools and machines.

Due to the specific requirements arising from the domain areas and the desire for additional customization, the client decided not to buy any existing solutions but to develop one of its own. Consequently, they started by protecting a part of their confidential processes.

It was very challenging for us as a team to create a tool that combined a lot of the functionality of great and well-known tools. At a given moment, it was necessary to do reverse engineering on some parts of the existing tools while working on making something new and different compared to what already exists on the market.

Smart Web Crawler

Developed a set of tools that can recognize and analyze content on web pages, carrying out specific studies according to the selected scope.

The goal of these tools was to gather a specific set of information based on recognized web pages in given areas and regions. The system needed to process over 100,000 portals every week.

As a result, it was necessary to use all the conveniences of cloud computing and natural language processing. The system can automatically identify the sources it needs to check and compare current results with previous ones.
