Say you want to travel from place A to place B, if you're a good citizen on planet earth like the rest of us you'll naturally be concerned about how your fuel usage and thats where FuelAware comes in. FuelAware optimises your journey and also helps you conserve fuel and improve your fuel-economy, because we care about fuel.
What it does
FuelAware gets your destination and as you travel suggest how to travel, e.g.: how much to change your speed to optimise fuel usage or whether you'll have to stop to refill. The mobile app provides a more detailed perspective of fuel consumption
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Our main challenge was to solve the relation between mileage and coming up with a formula that mapped speed to fuel economy
What we learned
We learned a lot about how the various aspects of fuel and how they relate with speed, throttle etc. Also we learned jQuery.
What's next for FuelAware
Data is power. With a large enough dataset of how various drivers use their fuel we can provide personalised route optimization to every driver regarding each of their cars.
