What inspired us to code NutriTrace was purely the difficulties astronauts face in outer space when it comes to storing food and keeping track of their rations. To solve this issue, we decided to create NutriTruce so astronauts can log their inventory and split rations evenly.
What it does
NutriTruce is an application that allows astronauts to log their food inventory and note down expiry dates to make sure nothing expired is consumed. The information of the food along with the expiry date is stored on our platform and once the food has expired, you are able to remove it from the application. Along with this, NutriTrace also has a rationing feature that allows astronauts to evenly distribute meals amongst themselves.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
The main challenge we ran into was to get the expiry date feature of our food inventory logger to work. This part was a bit difficult since it required components of the HTML portion to be linked to the python code. Another challenge was organizing all the files used to make NutriTruce. At times, the files got really messy and some files were jumbled up which made it hard to link the code together.
What's next for NutriTrace
In the future, we hope to link our ration and food logger which we weren't able to do due to time constraints.
