We were inspired by VDOT's goal of improving safety on the highways and interstates.
What it does
The ASIM application makes use of the large pools of raw data in the Smarter roads portals to give motorists insight on the best and quickest possible route available.
How we built it
We used Adobe systems.
Challenges we ran into
Trying to fin a hardware solution that would support our use of LPR systems.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the fact that the team was able to produce both a PowerPoint presentation and develop a mock application of what the app will do in a short period of time.
What we learned
We learned that there is a great deal of data collected by Smarter roads and VDOT that if implemented properly could save many lives on the interstates and highways.
What's next for A Safely Informed Motorist (ASIM)
The future of ASIM is to integrate the application with other forms of transportation such as railways and bus/shuttle routes.
