People road rage by yelling at their cars - but what if the cars yelled back?

What it does

It tracks your vehicle's speed, and compares it to a recommended speed limit based on the current road's speed limit and weather conditions

How we built it

We have a Flask backend which uses the Overpass and AccuWeather APIs to query real time speed limits and weather conditions. This is then displayed on a HTML frontend.

Challenges we ran into

We had several distinct parts that had to communicate through a Flask backend, and getting all of them to work correctly together was the biggest hurdle.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Creating an idea that has some real world utility, and successfully executing it!

What we learned

All of us gained experience with real-world software engineering, and designing a scalable implementation of our idea.

What's next for Screaming Car

Now that we have a functional prototype of our idea, all of us are excited to see if it's possible to design a road worthy version.
