We are cyclists who are tired of having to take out our phones every time just to navigate through the road. Therefore we decided to take it upon ourselves to solve this problem for all the cyclists around us.
What it does
Therefore, we decided to create an application which allows us to set and find the path to a destination just by using the Pebble smartwatch. This revolutionary application allows us to bike and navigate safer, faster, and easier. It also promotes environment friendly commuting and assists environmentally-aware members of the community.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Voice recognition system from the Pebble API which allows us to set the destination without having to type, which is what makes this application so useful. Full use of the Pebble API including displaying building custom interfaces. Navigation information display based on Google Maps Path.
What we learned
What's next for BikeNav
We would like to implement additional functionality such as alternate route suggestions, detour, view map option, and other classes. We would also like to allow the user to choose whether to act as a bicycle pedestrian or as a traffic cyclist. Possibly moving onto other devices of the same family. Also, CarNav coming in 2017.
