José Miguel Pérez Ontiveros

B.S. in Computer Science and Technology

    PDF Version


I hold a Bachelor's degree in Computer science and Technology with a GPA of 3.7, from Tecnológico de Monterrey.

During my 9 semesters at university, not everything was about my courses. I also played in many violin and piano recitals, was elected president of the Computer Science Student Society, participated at various contests and worked on personal projects.

You can take a quick look at my resume or scroll down to see some of the things I've done in more detail.

Major Projects

  • Life Time

    View this project on Github or the live demo here.
    I understand the importance of planning and of being able to see the big picture. This project displays a calendar of your whole life, letting you define periods and milestones. The project was forked from the original project Life Time by Cody Burleson.

    This is a screenshot of the project. D3 and momentjs were the JavaScript libraries y used.
  • PHP CRUD Framework

    One-person project. I believe in universal and reusable code, this is the main reason why I started one of my most important one-person perojects: my PHP CRUD generator. It is written in C and automates the creation of web based systems, leaving them ready for customization. It has saved me a considerable amount of time (up to 90%) while working on various other projects.

  • NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge

    View this project on Github.
    Three-person project. Formed part of my university's telemetry team that competed at the NASA Human Rover Exploration Challenge 2015, in Huntsvilla, Alabama. Later that year, I presented it at Campus Party Mexico 2015.
    Our project was composed by a cabinet we built to house an Arduino, a Freakduino a PCB, an XBee, a video transimetter and a battery, as well as cameras, a head mounted display, a WPF Kinect desktop application, a database and an online dashboard.
    A description of the whole system can be found in the prezzi we used at Campus Party:

    This is a screenshot of our dashboard, we used php, bootstrap and JQuery.
  • System and Methodology to Control Drones via Computers and Smartphones

    Two-person project. We overrode the drone’s radio controller joysticks with signals generated with a computer, through and arduino. The signals may corrspond to the input given to a smartphone, or be calculated automatically by a computer using artificial intelligence principles.
    An efficient method for segmentating images was developed. We used Unity 3D, Arduino, C# and made a PCB with low pass flters for the PWM signals to go through.
    We presented it at Campus Party Mexico 2014 and at my university´s congress 'Ideas que transforman'.

    This is a video of me demonstrating the control of a drone via a smartphone:

    This is the prezzi we used:

  • Robotic Fingers

    Three-person project. We designed, built and programmed a robotic hand and a PCB for the 8051 microcontroller. The servo signals were modulated via software, and all the programming was 8051 assembly language.
    We predefined routines, there was no interaction with the fingers as the 8051 microcontroller limited us in processing power and generating servo signals is relativly demanding.

  • Video Games

    • GTA Borregos

      I was project leader in a team project where we used Unity3D to create our version of Grand Theft Auto, but with our Campus as the map. It is an open world multiplayer game in which you can play missions or just do anything you want.

    • Lost Island Racing

      2013 - One-programmer project. Using OpenGL in C++ I implemented a racing game with a track creator.

    • Mirrey Game

      2012 - Team project. Using XNA (C#), I implemented a platform videogame, with varios levels and minigames that involved programming techniques like backtracking and recursion.
    • Myo vs Mouse

      2015 - Team project. Developed a video game un Unity 3D, to be used in a study to compare the Myo and Mouse's efectivity in flight simulators. I developed the videogame and an automatic data capturing module for the study.

  • Volunteer Programmer for an Environmental Cause

    View this project on Github.
    2-programmer project. We developed a website for people to share their experiences (picture and comment) after recieving a donated tree.
  • Papers

    • Published the paper Device Controller through an interface based on body movement, and presented it at CIINDET 2014 (International Congress of Innovation and Technological Development).
    • Currently about to publish a paper about a System and Methodology to Control Drones via Computers and Smartphones.
    • Currently about to publish a paper about Game Interaction: Myo vs. the conventional Mouse.
