Together with many Engineers at PALCO (Credit goes to Radwan Abu Tabaneh, Lead architect and project manager), we designed a first class Elevator control system based on the 87C51 micocontroller series. The Project started back in 1995 and took us around 3 year of hard work and sleepless nights to complete. The product is now mature. We received a Patent (Bara2t Ikhtira3) from the Ministry of Trade and Industry. The product managed to get the First Prize when it was presented at the Exhibition of Arab Inventors.(2000, Damascus) .

The product is called Universal Intelligent Controller (UIC), and it is now a commercial product that managed to capture around 70% of the Jordanian Market. We also sold some quantities in regional markets like Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Syria.

Education

Hobbies

Several hobbies, but  my interests in such hobbies swing according to my mood.

Reading, probably comes first, not fond of the act of  reading, but it is that strange feeling that overwhelms me when I attain knowledge, Reading is the first and foremost tool for getting such knowledge.

I swim, I walk, I Listen to music and I appreciate the beauty of mother nature. I get fascinated by the mighty power of winds, storms, clouds formation, etc.. and as such I track weather changes and weather forecast. I therefore developed some skills in weather forecasting.

Walking by the sea side on a windy (and rainy) day 

Whom do I like

I like people who are different, not in the way they look, but in the way they think, act , speak and behave. 

I like witty answers, unexpected dialogues etc... 

I also highly regard intellectual personalities
