Every year in America there are 1.6 million car crashes. 1 out of 4 of those are related to texting while driving. People nowadays can't resist the urge to know who texted them, what they texted them, and the reply back. Well, we have created a mobile app that can do just that and also keep you safe!
What it does
DriveSafe is an app that will reply to all texts and phone calls with a customizable automated text message an will read out loud the sender and the message, so there is no need to look at your phone while driving.
How we built it
We used MIT App Inventor to create this Android app.
Challenges we ran into
Challenges we ran into were that MIT App Inventor ran slow, decreasing our programming efficiency, along with a lot of debugging. A LOT of debugging.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that we have helped to create a solution to a major problem that claims so many lives every year.
What we learned
Throughout the creation of DriveSafe, we learned block-based programming, which was foreign to many of us in the beginning.
What's next for DriveSafe
Our plans for DriveSafe include opening it up to the Google Play Store, along with porting it over to iOS.
