Due to the increased melting of the ice caps, we wanted to create a web app that would allow users to educate themselves on their CO2 production per year and provide recommendations on what they can do to lower their CO2 production.
What it does
The application takes a users input based on the mileage consumption of their vehicle, whether they receive regular maintenance, the cost of their electrical bill, etc. and provides users with an output of their annual CO2 emissions along with a list of recommendations they can follow to lower their annual CO2 emissions.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Challenges we ran into were gathering information across multiple tabs and saving it for the formula used to calculate a users CO2 consumption
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of working together as a team to produce a working product.
What we learned
We became more familiar with the process of web development and working together as a team. We also became familiar with hackathon style events, brain storming, and wire frame software.
What's next for Carbon Footprint Tracker
Our next step is to provide more user tailored recommendations Clean up the UI to make it more engaging Provide an information section for users to educate themselves
