Supporting the Boekelo Military Grand Jury

An application for supporting the Grand Jury of the Boekelo Military cross-country

Samenvatting

This document describes the graduation project I carried out at the AMI research group at Saxion Hogeschool in Enschede during the period of 18-11-2019 through 22-4-2020. The goal is to prove that I possess the ability to design and create professional-grade software in a professional setting and in the process earn the right to call myself a Software Engineer.
The report covers the full process of taking the idea of solving a business case introducing a piece of software. This was done in cooperation with end users and experts on the topic. The project is related to the working practices of the cross-country jury of the Military in Boekelo.
The cross-country is an annual horse and jockey competition where the goal for participants is to cross many obstacles over a six-kilometer-long track and reach the finish line with as little penalty points as possible. Penalty points are awarded when an obstacle is not cleared correctly, or when the time it took a participant to reach the finish line is over a certain threshold.
Currently, the jury overseeing this event consists of three top experts – the Grand Jury – and a couple of people at each obstacle forming the many field juries. The Grand Jury is the only body to award penalties, but to do so, they rely on the observations of the field juries which are communicated through hand-held radios. Even though their help is very much appreciated, the existence of the, often voluntary, field juries is out of practical necessity. It is the only way the Grand Jury has access to observations made about the performance of participants.
This is the problem which this project aims to solve; the Grand Jury must rely on the observations of others and cannot “take a closer look” at anything. Once the horse has passed an obstacle it’s gone, and if the field jury missed it (or is unsure of what they saw in a flash) there is no way to determine what has actually happened.
The software solution that enables this is referred to as “the Jury Application”. In essence, it allows for viewing the camera live streams and play back recordings of this. Having with their own eyes seen the video of a participant crossing an obstacle, the jury can come to a well-informed verdict. These verdicts are broadcasted to all users of the Event Information System and stored in a database for later reference.
