Google's cloud vision API and PDI's challenge
What it does
It receives picture/snapshots of gas station price tag taken by user and outputs gas prices
How we built it
Using gcloud and firebase API
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are able to get a decent result by using google's vision API, despite the fact that it often makes spurious detection; we are able to use regular expression to significantly improve its performance.
What we learned
We should avoid using multiple languages while doing projects!
What's next for GasVisi0n
We are going to improve the backend algorithm and add an AR(augmented reality) features to the user interface.
