| A community app that saves our energy in ordering take-out.
Makan: To eat
Tompang: To hitch a ride
Ever asked your roommate to buy you dinner on their way home? What if you could ask anyone in the community? Makan Tompang is an app that connects users who want a food delivery (buyers) with users who are already at restaurants (couriers).
What It Does
The app considers the route that the courier would take from the restaurant to their homes/destinations, and suggests buyers whose locations are on their route, in the order of how much of a detour they would have to make to get to those buyers.
How We Built It
Accomplishments That We Are Proud Of
Using Flask successfully for a team of 3/4 non-engineers. For eating 5 slices of pizza each. We changed our entire project but still made it. We made sure our Flask guy never gave up. For getting some sleep.
What We Learned
What's Next For Makan Tompang
- Real-time location tracking of buyers/couriers to auto-populate address field
- Group communities by schools/towns/cities etc.
- Ability for courier to indicate if they are walking, cycling, or driving. This will alter the algorithm so that if they are driving, for example, the algorithm takes into account that they would be able to make a detour, faster.
