Brief Description   New cars turn on/off using a push button. Owners of these cars face a problem with
                    forgetting to turn off their car which causes it to lock while the engine is running while
                    unoccupied. We will develop a system that can recognize when the car is unoccupied and
                    running, and shut down the engine after a specified amount of time.
Product value       Cars usually don’t have this feature.

Brief Description   This project is about developing the next generation in sea planes. We will construct a sea
                    plane following the patents of Lockheed Martin. The purpose of this aircraft is to land and
                    depart from a short distance. It will have a dual engine located one behind the other in a
                    diagonal position. Also, the floats are going to be designed with the idea to prevent waves
                    from generating excessive friction when landing.
Product value       Military or search and rescue.

Team or project     Vision-Based Parking Management System
Team Leader         Rayyan Alsharidah
Team members        Mosaed Alsharidah
                    Rayyan Alsharidah

Brief Description   We propose the design of a system for monitoring and managing a parking area using a
                    vision-based approach. The proposed system utilizes image processing and statistical
                    methods to analyze image sequences captured by cameras. The system determines the
                    availability of parking spaces and provides information for vehicle drivers via wireless
                    communication devices.
Product value       The system avoids the use of individual sensors for each parking space which significantly
proposition         reduces installation and maintenance costs. In addition, statistics can be collected to
                    provide useful information on occupancy, busy times, vehicle classification, etc.

Brief Description   The morphing Wing is new type of wing that transforms to the required shape by using
                    rubber muscles. In order to automate this process we will create software that pilot can
                    pick the specific degree for the flaps and the correct amount of air pressure will be pumped
                    to the rubber muscles that is located in the wing. Also some temperature and air pressure
                    sensors will be incorporated.
