Matchpoint: Computer Vision Machine Learning Mobile Application

A Swift-based application that uses highly efficient CoreML computer vision models (converted from PyTorch) to track individuals and tennis balls while practicing wall tennis drills at home. The application enables the users to start new challenges in tennis training and saves the best records against a worldwide leaderboard.

Card Issuer Mobile Application
Card holding app developed in Swift for food tickets received by employees from their employer. In the app, you may add all of the cards that you hold from the card issuer, meal ticket, vacation, and gift cards. The app will show all the payments on every card and also suggest partner businesses such as restaurants. I've also integrated Apple Pay in this project. The initial Apple Store rating was 2.3. After the re-writing and deployment of the new design and functionalities, the app had an increased rating of 4.8 with over 10,000 ratings.

Car Sharing Mobile Applications

A car sharing app using eco-friendly BMW i3 cars available for reservation based on their proximity. I completed both the back office and back end. When opening the application, a map is shown with the cars available near the customer's location. They can be reserved and unlocked using a BCR provided debit/credit card. The application user can drive the car anywhere, as long as the card has funds to support the payment. Once a trip has ended, the car becomes available to other users, who can reserve it. The app consists of a web administration platform built in Node.js and a hybrid iOS Android app built in React Native.

Web and Mobile Applications for IoT Device (Thermostat)

Web app for an IoT solution for a smart home air conditioning system based on the Arrayent cloud that ensures device control and alerts sent. There are two main components on the platform: The SmartData server is designed to store historical thermostat data, generate reporting, send alerts to end-users, and control thermostat. The other is the broker support devices connectivity, which operates current thermostat values, controls the device, and ensures alert triggering. Users can control all reports generating an alert sent from the web app.

Airport Mobile Application

The app helps visitors and passengers quickly navigate a vibrant environment, easily locate airline gates, parking, ground transport, and various airport amenities, find great restaurants, excellent shopping, wonderful music, and cultural attractions right inside the terminal complex.

Medical Network Mobile Application
Among the new features added to the app are self-services for validating personal details, self-check-in with geofencing to avoid the reception queues (showing users which doctor to go for their appointment, what floor, and what office), face recognition for validation of personal information for newly created accounts, and virtual appointments connected to Microsoft Teams. A kilometer bank is another feature that tracks exercise time and can be synced with third-party apps such as Google Fit, Fitbit, Healthkit, and Strava.

Car Dealership Security Application

The app connects the two parties engaged in contract signings when occurring off-site for the dealership. Dealerships log into the app system and place an order. Notaries log onto the system and make themselves available to be booked by filling in their credentials and documents and taking their certification test. Notaries are rated and can become express notaries and super express notaries if their work is rated high enough.

Depending on the location of the dealership’s end-customer, a notary is selected by a scheduler. After this, the notary will contact the customer, complete the off-site signing, and ship the documents to the dealership. Orders are tracked from beginning to end and are sortable. This system allows for a secondary notary to be assigned if this is needed. It was made exclusively for the automotive industry and financial institutions whose volume is between 1,000 and 2,000 signings per month.

eCommerce Mobile Hybrid Application
This is a mobile application written in Vue Native (wrapper over React Native) for a large eCommerce platform. My role in this project was that of a technical lead. The decision to use Vue Native was based on the client's motivation to reuse the datastore from the website (written in Vue.js). The use of native AR frameworks (ARKit/ARCore) for functionality helps place items in AR in your house. The React Native application is a flow inside native iOS/Android applications.
