We wanted to created an application that could assist victims of medical emergencies that could guarantee them immediate attention. Too often, victims of heart attacks or asphyxiation are unable to reach a defibrillator or CPR-trained professionals in time before brain damage or death occurs.

What it does

Our app allows users to locate the nearest medical personnel with a particular medical strength, and to call them immediately through their available phone numbers.

How we built it

We used the Wikitude SDK platform for the augmented reality features and classes. The app was programmed using a Javascript API in Android Studio. We used HTML and CSS in conjunction with the API to design the interfaces, as well as Sketch for all graphics.

Challenges we ran into

This was our first time creating a augmented reality application, so it was difficult to initially set up the conditions necessary for our point-of-interest (POI) focused application. In addition, afterwards, we needed to ensure that the images were consistent with their locations.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We were able to successfully implement our application before the deadline, as well as correctly position the indicator towards the medical personnel best capable of handling our emergency. We were also able to create a UI for the phone number and distance of each of the personnel.

What we learned

We learned how to utilize the Javascript API in order to program our application using a web based interface. In addition, we also learned how to implement and augmented reality application within Android Studio.

What's next for LifeSavr

We would like to add a map and GPS functionality to utilize navigation, as well as adding details about each personnel's certification.
