Roads are constantly becoming worse and worse locally, this system will inform clients where hotspots are and advise the responsible parties where they should concentrate their efforts.
What it does
It uses mobile accelerometer and GPS to plot moving statistics and average rates of change in the accelerometer. The phone logs this data and will send this to a backend. Users remain anonymous and the backend will collate data from everyone to build up an average spread of accelerometer readings.
How I built it
Using Android Studio to make the app, backend doesn't yet exist but will use Node.js.
Challenges I ran into
Android apps take a while to make, it's hard to represent data during tests on the phone without introducing complex graphing libraries.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
Ideas are hard to come by spontaneously
What's next for Road Tracker
Implement backend with visualisation tools, create iOS app.
