We were inspired to create this while brainstorming ideas for our EarthxHack 2018 project while driving to Dallas, TX from Norman, OK. We wondered what kind of environmental impact we were causing by driving hundreds of miles to reach this event and if there was a better way for us to reach our destination.
What it does
As of now, this website allows you to enter a starting and ending point, then calculates the distance and how many pounds of CO2 will be released into the atmosphere
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud that we learned a massive amount about these languages in just about 24 hours.
What we learned
What's next for Green Machines
We hope to add future implementation for calculating the CO2 emissions released by traveling with trains, planes, and busses, so users can decide the most environmentally friendly way to go on their next trip! Additionally, we'd like to add more sources and suggestions that users can consider to help offset their carbon emissions when they can't take the most environmentally friendly mode of transport.
