What it does
It plots a new running routes on a HERE map using waypoints generates from 4 route algorithms. These waypoints are then joined to create a route, which is then evaluted with various parameters, such as taking into account the gradient along the route and the weather conditions to determine how difficult that route is. In this way, the runner has a larger choice of running routes, especially if they go to a previously unknown location.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have a functional web-based program which does a large section of what we wanted to achieve going in. We made a great comeback after midnight on the first night, where we couldn't get the API to display a map, let alone to do any of the functions we wanted it to do.
What we learned
What's next for ReRun
We want to expand the capabilities of our program. At the moment it takes in a wide variety of factors including gradient and real-time weather. We want to include weather forecasting in the mapped area so as to warn runners of substantial weather changes during their run. We also want to improve our difficulty calculating algorithms and be able to add significant landmarks to routes. As well as this, it is feasible to adapt the program to a cycling demographic. We would also want to move the program to become app based so as to take full advantage of features such as GPS.
