We wanted to build an app where it could improve people's travel preparation experience.
What it does
It estimates the time someone should leave to go to the airport. Travel distance includes traffic and customs processing time.
How we built it
Used Andriod Studio to create the app that makes the API calls to American Airline's Flight Engine API in order to generate mock flight data in order to simulate actual data for airlines. Additionally, the app makes API calls to Google Maps Distance Matrix API in order to implement estimation on travel time (with traffic taken into account) to the airport.
Challenges we ran into
Trying to connect our frontend code to our backend code.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
- Figuring out how to use the American Airlines API Flight Engine. ## What we learned
What's next for Scheduled Airlines
We want to implement our device location and real-time tracking of the number of people in customs currently using Geolocation.
