When we go out with our friends, finding a way to eliminate the worry of being separated, wanting to know where they are and how they are doing when alcohol is involved has been a challenge.
What it does
Keep your phone close and your friends closer. Array allows you to create a group, quickly check in and send alerts on your status while you're out and about.
How we built it
We used Visual Studio to develop a back end code in C++ with vectors. We attempted to integrate it with Android Studio. Additionally, we used arduino, adafruit, bluefruit with digital and analog devices that could be integrated for future connected bracelet technology.
Challenges we ran into
We were unable to complete an integration between our program with both Android Studio and Visual Studio.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We survived the 24 hours of coding, never gave up on our project, we were able to create profiles and update statuses. We also connected a bluetooth adafruit to iOS and Android.
What we learned
Coding is a challenge and app development is difficult. Bluetooth technology is also more complicated than anticipated.
What's next for Array
Furthering development of the interface and integrating the map technology for GPS location feature.
