We wanted to create an app that would provide users an easy, simple way of reducing their energy and resource waste. We believe that as society continues to develop more and more new technology, we should also be aware of environmental concerns and making our technology more sustainable.
What it does
ReHabit lets the user input events such as when they would leave the house for work and send individualized reminders to reduce waste by things such as, turning off the lights, turning off the water, and adjusting the temperature.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Learning how to effectively use Android Studio, Java, and XML. We were first time users of Android Studio and most of our team had no prior experience with Java and XML.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud of developing the skill to collaborate as a team and effectively communicate and share ideas to create a new application in a timely manner.
What we learned
We learned how to utilize the tools in Android Studio and have more experience now with Java and XML.
What's next for ReHabit
We're researching the possibility of connecting our app to a smart speaker such as Amazon Echo.
