We hated waiting at the crosswalk on Forbes and Morewood

What it does

Monitors speed of user and starting distance and informs whether to walk faster or slower to make the light.

How I built it

We used Android Studio to develop an Android application which relayed through BeBoC (our cloud) which has a PHP/Python/MySQL relationship.

Challenges I ran into

Heroku Fedora command-line toolbelt; We sent too many requests to our own sites causing us to become blocked on our own CMU network.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

What I learned

What's next for Beep Boop

Improve efficiency of the website and the back-end. This would allow us to scale to other traffic lights around Pittsburgh. This along with a smartwatch app would be a great improvement.
