Projects for Embedded Applications

Projects for set-up and control applications of consumer elctronics


Nagra Guide

In this project I optimised the development processes for embedded applications for set-top boxes provided by Nagra France, Paris.

  • Set-up of an internal structure to coordinate 4 departments: product management, project management, engineering, and user-interface design
  • Introduction of an inter-divisional modularisation of requirements
  • Re-design and realisation of the functional specification


d-box II Setup Applications

The d-box II was an innovative receiver of German media mogul Leo Kirch in the early days of digital television. It was the first receiver in the German market including a Java virtual machine to download and execute interactive applications.

In my first professional project I realised the d-box Setup applications including the Installation Assistant, the Channel Manager, and the Expert Setup. The implementation integrated concepts of user-centered design such as user typology, usability tests, step-by-step user guidance, and a context-sensitive interactive help system.
