Our inspiration came from our experiences with loud places - when we're near, in or around those places.
How it works
By installing many microphones in a large area (Neighborhoods, Cities, ...) and getting all of their readings, and after processing all the data and presenting it in a comfortable way for the end-user, strong sound sources can be located, which can be used by the local authority.
Challenges I ran into
Parsing the data from the hardware, choosing our target audience for the product, cross-platform support
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
A good idea that can be used in all sorts of situations and places
What I learned
How to communicate via a serial port, technologies like flask, sqlAlchemy, Arduino, QT, Google Maps API
What's next for Econ
Much more! Heat-Map support for easy monitoring, support for alarming the user about critical noise problems, and even private business owners that use our service for monitoring their business
