To reduce road accidents & make rides safer
What it does
The app suggests the safest route among all possible routes between an origin and destination. This suggestion is based on the historical road accident data of all possible routes between any two places. With this suggestion, accidents can be reduced and traffic congestion can also be addressed.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Finding accident related data
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Able to employ services across various clouds for a single application.
What we learned
Some gaps in existing various cloud offerings. Prototyping a socially impact-full app in a very short span.
What's next for Safe Route
Expand to other cities and may be eventually see this as an option in various major maps and navigation applications. Also improve performance and confidence of suggesting the most safest route by using larger datasets. This can also be integrated with crime data to enhance the safety not just for accidents but for other aspects as well.
