It sucks when you are running at full speed trying to catch your bus, only to miss it because the driver didn't see you. Well never fear, for Bus Ping is here!
What it does
Bus Ping provides you with a means to ping a bus when you are within range. This alerts the driver and will save you from waiting outside in the cold. We have included a mobile payment system that allows you to pay for your fare with your phone.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
None of us had any experience developing similar applications. This required us to learn many new languages, features, and skills on the fly.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Being able to complete our projects despite the short time and lack of experience.
What we learned
Learn environments and languages that we wish to use before the event rather than during the event. As well, we all gained valuable experience through experimenting with various environments.
What's next for Bus Ping
The future will decide.
