Focus on Innovation
Our teams of experts synchronize with you to bring their experience, ideas and design thinking to identify new areas of innovation and collaboratively implement these ideas.
Grade prediction for academic progress of students
Techlogix has developed a student grade prediction module for a cloud based campus management solution. Final grades are predicted at various stages during the semester. The predicted grade report for each student includes major reasons for the prediction allowing constructive feedback that prevents drop outs reducing financial losses for institutions and stigmas for students. Where available, associated social and demographic data is included in a predicted grade report highlighting any special circumstances and overall student population trends.
Smart Contracts for Real Estate
Techlogix is currently engaged with a public sector entity in helping implement Smart Contracts for real estate property transfers. This is a first of its kind initiative in the country and would improve security by helping prevent fraud transactions and provide better transparency to the regulator helping improve tax collections and lost revenue. It would also help improve operational inefficiencies by removing intermediaries and reducing the administrative effort of record keeping and transaction reconciliation.
Occupancy Classification for Smart Airbag Deployment
Techlogix developed a real-time and cost-effective vision-based 3D occupancy detection and classification system for smart airbag deployment for Eaton Corporation, a leading automobile technology company. The key system requirements were to detect the presence of an object in close proximity of the airbag (the “at-risk” zone) within 10ms and to determine occupant type on the front passenger seat of the automobile. The airbag controller would use this information to determine whether or not to deploy the airbag. Techlogix developed a fast stereo-vision algorithm for depth-mapping to determine the presence of an object in the at-risk zone. For occupant determination, a multi-stage expert system was developed to classify the occupants as adult, child, rear-facing infant seat, front-facing child seat and other. Using hundreds of static images, more than 500 features were extracted and input to a Machine Learning classifier. The ML classifier output and selected features were used in the second stage heuristic classifier to improve accuracy and calculate a Confidence Factor for each classification. The system achieved a detection accuracy of >92% and an airbag deployment accuracy of 100%. A joint patent was awarded to Eaton and Techlogix (Patent # US6459974 B1).

Our business depends on long-term relationships with our customers built on mutual trust. Protecting your confidential information and IP is engraved deeply in our culture and your IP is secure.
Cloud & Mobility Enablement
The advent of Cloud Computing and Mobility has caused a paradigm shift – products are no longer limited to a geographical region or a specific technology, but are accessible 24/7 across the globe from devices such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
We design and develop “real” cloud and mobile applications – not just traditional apps migrated to hosted environments. We offer services to:
- Architect and implement performance centric, multi-tenant and secure products using Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Force.com and OpenStack.
- Re-engineer existing on-premise products into SaaS-based solutions.
- Identify compute, storage, networking, high-availability and scaling requirements to design a flexible architecture and roadmap so that platforms start small and scale up or out judiciously.
- Utilize benchmarking analytics tools to continually monitor and adjust the performance vs. cost tradeoffs as per your current business needs.
We help our customers identify analytical needs from several perspectives – functional, operational, security, audit – and incorporate monitoring hooks within the product design for immediate or future needs.
We generate social metrics – such as brand reach, engagement, customer acquisition, conversion and popularity – from streams of data from a range of social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin, Youtube, Pinterest, etc.
We also utilize Big Data platforms to collect and process large-scale data feeds and streams from internal systems and third parties such as Google Analytics. We have experience in creating customer personas, usage trends and a multi-dimensional 360 view of the user.
User Experience (UX) Design
Our creative design and development experts aim to ensure that every encounter with your user is an appealing, rich and useful experience that invites, engages, and results in repeat usage.
The lifecycle starts with the development of aesthetically appealing and conceptually meaningful visual themes of the product using color, fonts and images effectively. Physical or digital visual storyboarding workshops help to chalk out the modules and features on your priority using tools such as colorful sticky notes or Trello. Mobile-first and responsive design screen mock-ups using industry standards such as Google Material Design, are created with prototyping tools such as JustInMind. The design is then published and collaborated to consensus over tools such as InVision.
Our Agile Development Toolkit
The Toolkit is a set of roles, practices and templates that enable our teams – trained in agile methods – to deliver using widely accepted industry practices such as product backlog, sprint planning, daily scrums, sprint demos, code reviews, and process retrospectives. You get end-to-end visibility from a long-term product Roadmap plan built using a Gantt chart. The user stories, sprint planning, effort estimation and issue/task management is done in tools like Atlassian Jira and Confluence. A PMO tracking sheet helps in sprint planning and ETA forecasting through complexity based estimates in relative Agile scales such as story points. It includes requirements change traceability and a PM’s RAID Log that at any time provides a 360 degree view and continual de-risking of change management, project risks, issues, action items, and decisions in meeting minutes. The holistic view is transparently visible to the customer and team in synchronization using collaborative means such as Google Drive, Jira, Asana or Trello.
The code release cycle is continuous integration, merging, integration and deployment by Dev, QA and Infra teams using code repositories such as Subversion and Git.
The products are tested functionally and for non-functional requirements such as robustness, security, performance, load and scale using manual and automated tools and techniques by our dedicated performance engineering team.
The product Go-To-Market and sales life cycle is supported by syncing the software & hardware stack and data of the product cloud environments so that Dev = QA and Stage = Production. This is key for effective UAT and releases on Production leading to win-win Go-Lives.
