We've all been stranded in the cold, waiting for the senate bus to come. Never again!
What it does
See a comprehensive overview of where the senate bus is on a map, and get an accurate estimated time on when the next bus is coming (if it's late!). You can even see which buses are full so you don't have to wait out in the cold for the next one. If you're a minute away from the bus stop, you can even request the driver to wait for you!
How I built it
Used socket.io as a source and built Google Maps APIs into it. Hosted the website on Heroku and collaborated using GitHub
Challenges I ran into
Handling the Google API and integrating into the code
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
That we finished a proof of concept, which includes a complete Geolocation tracker & broadcaster, Map markers.
What I learned
What's next for Senate Bus Tracker
Try and make it fully functional and operational. Integrate a mobile banking system into it so that buying physical bus tokens is not necessary anymore!
