Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that we came up and did the solution in a short period of time.
What we learned
As we are beginners, we never thought that the website and image processing would be completed in this hackathon and due to the time limit we completed it really in a fast manner.
What's next for OMNITRAX
Our future vision is to implement and use this solution not only in trucks but also in trains and many other transportation services.
