When we found it that: -South Carolina has a higher fatality/mile traveled than any other state by a long margin -Anderson County has significantly higher crashes along its main road compared to bigger and busier counties. -Fatal Crashes in South Carolina: 924 -Motor vehicle crash deaths in South Carolina: 988 -Nationwide at least 36 kids die in hot cars every year -According to the Centers for Disease Control, 50,000 people are hospitalized each year, and 430 die due to accidental carbon monoxide poisoning.
What it does
-Able to recognize a Drowsy Vs. Alert face using AWS Recognition. -Prevents the driver from drinking/sleeping and driving. -Able to open the window if a child or pet is left inside and is unable to escape or open the window -Able to read Temp (F) and Carbon Monoxide in Parts Per Million -Multilingual support with all voice prompts in both English and Spanish.
How we built it
We used AWS for facial recognition, posture analysis, and image/data storage. We use a Raspberry Pi to take the picture, display user interface, and output sound to a speaker. We used two Arduinos as an easy solution of multithreading. One Arduino reads sensor values, while the other Arduino commands a motor.
Amazon AWS Services used
-AWS Rekognition -AWS DynamoDB -AWS S3 Storage -AWS Polly -AWS Translate
Challenges we ran into
Building with cardboard, Tolerance issues with 3D printing, embedded systems with watchdog timers, calibrating machine learning models with a limited dataset.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Connecting all of the sensors, project boards, and AWS into one system.
