Auburn University Projects

Senior Design

My group and I worked with a local company as our project 'sponsor' to develop an Android application based on specifications they communicated to us. The app was designed as a solution to many of the frustrations campus tailgaters face on game-days. Some of the problems this app solved include: communicating where a tailgate is, who will be there, what supplies everyone should bring, as well as available parking on campus with pricing, and finding your car after the game. I worked with a group of three other peers in my college to develop this with formal documentation, team meetings, and meetings with the sponsor throughout the semester.
