With the rise of self driving cars on the horizon, implementing sensors inside of the car adds to the user experience and expands functionality. With a theme of quantified self in mind, we decided to make a hack that combined these two worlds.
What it does
An application that can be implemented in a self driving car that is capable of detecting a medical emergency as it unfolds using a Muse headband sensor to collect live data about the body and have the car react accordingly. Upon sensing a medical emergency, the car is rerouted to the nearest hospital and the passenger's relevant medical history is sent to the hospital along with the Muse headband data to prepare the personnel for the passenger's arrival.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Gaining a much greater understanding of back-end development, getting experience working with Firebase and Muse, and learning some PHP are all things we're proud of.
What I learned
Back-end development, PHP scripting, Firebase, Node.js, Ajax, Twilio, Muse
What's next for MediRoute
As this app could potentially help save lives, we would be incredibly happy to see it or a similar idea hit a real market.
