Our inspiration stemmed from finding a practical solution to address changes in UV radiation in a user's given area. UV radiation can tell us more about environmental problems such as global warming and also help us take better steps towards prevention of DNA damage.
What it does
We created a website that takes in input from a UV radiation sensor that is connected to an Arduino 101 board. With this input, we were able to display a chart of the UV radiation measurements over a given span of time. In addition to the chart, we also have a map of locations where the sensors are reading the input from.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Some of the challenges we ran into included soldering the wires to the sensor, creating the Node server on Azure, figuring out how to post data from the Arduino, and creating location markers based on data we collected from the server.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are happy that we finished with a minimum viable product. We are also happy to say that we have incorporated both hardware and software in our project rather than using only software.
