OpenFleet is a complete fleet management and e-ticketing solution created for the Romanian public transportation operator from the city of Sibiu. The project involved both software and hardware, since it was a complete solution. On the hardware side, developed GPS and 3G on-board computers for the buses, ticket validators, information panels for the buses, and real-time information panels for bus stations. On the software side, worked on a custom Linux distribution for the on-board computers, a dispatching platform for the buses, complete with algorithms that show if a bus is going to be late or early and also to inform the panels about the time a bus will arrive at the station. Developed features for the software to show the real time, historical location, speed information, real-time ticket validation information, bus routes, schedules, and more.
KNN is a highly complex geometrical algorithm for classifying texts into text clusters. From two sheets of paper filled with mathematical formulas written by Claudiu C. Musat to a production-ready system, it was a long and challenging road. Oversaw the project design, architecture, development, and testing. Eight years after its completion, KNN is still a core technology of Bitdefender's anti-spam software, leading to several prizes in anti-spam competitions.
