------Developer Report------ Inspired by CityAirbus, and looking towards the future of personal transport, we developed a web application to represent the dashboard for the Airbus CityAirbus quadrotor. Using two devices in tandem, a tablet would display information about the journey(representing the on-board dashboard!), which could be controlled using a mobile device, controlling functions such as temperature and autonomous flight.
In our original designs, we planned to allow the user to simulate controlling the vehicle using their phones gyroscope however, due to security updates in current web browsers, we were not able to implement this without using a https server (This took a large chunk of our time). As it would have been too time consuming during the hackathon to attain an ssl certficate, we were forced to deprecate this code. We also envisioned using a media api to allow music playback to be controlled and this too could not be implemented due to security restrictions.
