Merlin is a client app for Merlin Protect, which is an online system for business security. Merlin Protect is in use in many large organisations and buildings around the world including recently Sainsbury’s. I took on the maintenance and development of new features on this app. Ultimately the app was ported to codenameone to allow for native Android and iOS versions. This means it can now run on almost any device out there (as seen below on various phones and tablets).
The Merlin Mobile App provides users access to their Merlin Protect 24/7 software platform on the go, anywhere, any time. Using their current, secure Merlin Protect 24/7 login details they can have instant access to all the reporting and functions in real time wherever they are and all data entered is synced within the Merlin Protect 24/7 audit system.
Some of the companies using this app (more to come!). Team London Bridge used this app to target active shooters in the Terrorist attacks in 2019. This one isn’t that pretty but it saves lives, we kept it simple and easy to use in an emergency.
The electronic Control Room Day Book is an integrated application that is utilised to capture and manage occurrence information in any environment where manual occurrence books are normally used.
Daily tasks are prescribed by the specific assignment instructions and can be tailored to the user. Essentially, all tasks that have to be completed that day are displayed on the handheld device, the task can either be ticked off by the user or where QR codes are utilized scanned onto the mobile device when complete. This provides for real time monitoring which increases the security teams value to the client and provides greater safeguarding of assets and facilities.
SOPs/AIs can be accessed via the app, enabling staff to follow procedures in a consistent manner and ensures clarity and precision in their approach. This means that no matter who is managing the procedure, the outcome is the same and you will be able to audit the actions taken every time.
Supporting information, such as photographs, pdfs, word and excel documents can also be uploaded to the report from the device.
The idea of this project was to develop a proof of concept simulation of flying a helicopter in VR across real terrain. This was a very rough initial phase for proof of concept and was later built upon outside of my own developments. But ultimately the idea was to create a cheap way of trying out different systems within helicopters without having to implement them for millions of dollars. For example placing virtual dials, touchscreens and other instruments in different places within the helicopter to see how they work in practise. Further work was to be done on communication between the helicopters so that pilots could communicate in new innovative ways, like seeing video streams from other helicopters etc.
I worked with Razer to supply state of the art OSVR HDK VR headsets for real helicopter pilots to try it out in India. The collaboration between myself and Razer started when I became one of the 10 winners of the Razer OSVR Fund with my personal indie game.

I was contracted by Saatchi & Saatchi to build this exciting app. I decided to develop it using Codename One.

I was absolutely shocked and dismayed to learn that LAS (London Ambulance Service Volounteers) were receiving GPS coordindates with no actual genuine digital map location! They were still searching a physical map to find where they are going! This wasted valuable time allowing people to die. Once I realised I this I developed an app that converted these coords to real google world ones, piped directly to their GPS, showing them the exact spot on the map they needed to go to. This undoubtely saved hundreds of thousands of lives! I donated this app for free to them to aid their good work. and took nothing. Their lack of something like this shocked me, I gave it for free to save lives, my friends, family, maybe my own. They continue to do great work with my tool.
