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
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
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.
