iOS App Demo
We observed that data visualized in 3D can reveal interesting patterns that are not visible numerically.
What it does
This project is an interactive Augmented Reality experience that displays predicted power demand versus actual power demanded in the Northeast region. The height of the states represents the percentage difference from the predicted power consumption as calculated by a regulating authority.
How we built it
Vuforia, Unity, C#, Xcode(to iOS)
Challenges we ran into
Conflicts between the Windows and OSX versions of our project in Unity. We realized that XCode and its associated environment is the most obnoxious application to work with ever.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The Interactivity of the application and the ability to explore the data over time is something that we believe is very valuable to the end user. We don't see this as something that will replace a traditional computer terminal anytime soon, but it shows an application of how data can be easily understood if visualized properly.
What we learned
Android Studio is picky; XCode is tricky.
What's next for Augmented Electricity
Some ideas for the future include transparent radar, cloud cover, temperature, transportation layers, data at a finer level, visualization of power plants and distribution networks.
