Google cloud platform API

Inspiration

We are big on diversity and inclusion and love any opportunity to make life much better and accommodating for everyone because everyone deserves a chance.

What it does

Our app basically solves one of the biggest challenges of persons with motor disabilities which is access to transportation by bringing it to them in a convenient and affordable manner.

How we built it

We used Android Studio and java to build the front end of our app, as well as Google cloud platform and Github code for our back-end code.

Challenges we ran into

All of our team members had neither worked with java nor been in a hackathon before so we really challenged ourselves to come out with a product.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We learnt a new language, made our first app and we're helping people we genuinely care about live a better life.

What we learned

We learnt that as long as you stay motivated and never give up, you can always use what you have to get what you want. We also learnt about java features we had never heard about before such as Activities and map APIS's and all that good stuff.

What's next for AccessABLE

We already have plans of expanding our product to not only cater for people with motor disabilities but all kinds of disabilities by adding features such as speech-to-text and other accessibility features. We also found out during our research that a huge problem for persons with disabilities is getting someone to help them so we plan to expand our app to include a space where disabled persons can easily find, match and hire qualified persons to cater to them.
