This project is inspired by PayByPhone,
What it does
FWIW, or most commonly known as “Forget Where I Was,” is an incredibly fast, easy to use, and secure universal check-in system that allows quick and safe entry to any residential or guest lodging, such as: Gated Communities Apartment Check-In AirBnB Hotels
How we built it
We built this project using GCP to host our VM instance (Centos 8 Stream)to create this project. Twilio was used to assign Rocket a phone number to text the residents/guests. MariaDB was used to host our database to store the information of the residents/guests. Domain.com was used to host our domain name “fwiw.tech”. Dialog Flow our natural language processing, is what was used to make sure Rocket can talk to the residents/guests and feed the information that was given to Rocket to our database.
Challenges we ran into
The biggest challenge we ran into was getting the AI talking to the user using Dialog Flow, the issue we ran into was that the AI wouldn't send the user the correct responses or not recognizing the name and information that was provided.
Receiving the information from the user and putting it into our data base was also another minor challenge we ran into. We were having issues with sorting which information goes into where so the AI sends the user the correct responses.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Successfully saving everything into our data and getting the AI bot to correctly respond to users.
What we learned
We gained new experiences using dialog flow, php, mySQL, GCP and Twilio.
What's next for FWIW
FWIW mission is to help, guide and facilitate communities by allowing them to get home quickly and securely. Rocket’s future consists of expanding these ideas not to residential or lodging establishments but to more populated organizations such as concerts, corporation events, dinner reservations, etc. In addition to expanding, Rocket’s protocol for maintaining safety for all its users will escalate, which means that Rocket will ask for more sensitive information about the user.
