We imagined if we were in an accident, we would be shocked and we would not be able to provide the best help possible.
What it does
- Guides you trough the necessary steps after an accident
- Call the police at any time from the status bar
- Reminds you where your personal items are (first aid kit, warning triangle…)
- Tells you what to do if you are to shocked to read
- Provides an overlay with your position/current address when you call the police
How I built it
CrashBuddy is built in Android using a strongly Fragment based layout. The questions are dynamically loaded from a JSON file and are extendable by simple HTML content. We used AndroidStudio, Java and nearly no third party libraries.
Challenges I ran into
- Building the decision tree for every situation
- Creating the Breadcrumb View
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
- The custom Breadcrub View that lets you navigate through the questions that you have been asked
- The visual design in general
What I learned
- A lot about custom views and canvas drawing
- How to create widgets and overlays in Android
What's next for CrashBuddy
- Minor design tweaks
- Improving the decision tree / new decision trees for other countries
- Lots of new help instructions
