CSE 6362 Intelligent Environments

Final Project

Project Proposal due by midnight on Friday, April 5, 2002.
Project Demonstration in class on Monday, April 29, 2002.
Final Project and team evaluations due by midnight Monday, May 6, 2002.

Project Overview

The purpose of the class project is to design, implement and simulate a complete intelligent environment scenario. The scenario should be based on the smart home example we have been following in class. Your scenario should consist of the following components.

Project Proposal

On or before the above Project Proposal due date, you should submit to me (holder@cse.uta.edu) a proposal for your project outlining the behaviors, sensors, predictions, and decisions to be implemented and used and how the entire system will be demonstrated. Project proposals must be approved by the instructor.

Project Demonstration

You will demonstrate your project in class on the date indicated on the schedule by first briefly describing your implementation of the above components and then visually demonstrating the adaptability of the environment using your GUI. The demonstration must show the environment adapting to the agent in some way by learning to perform some appropriate action.

Final Project

Your final project will consist of a project report, presentation, and all source code. The report should describe in detail all the above components: agent behaviors, sensors, network, database, prediction, decision-making, and integration. The report should also describe the demonstration and give precise instructions for running the demonstration. The presentation should be a set of PowerPoint slides giving an overview of your project, as presented at the demonstration. The source code should include everything needed to run your scenario. Your source code should follow the Coding Standard and use a Makefile to support easy compilation. Package up everything according to Assignment Turn-In Information as appropriate for the project specification and email to holder@cse.uta.edu by the above final project deadline.

Grading

Grading will be based on the following components.
