we wanted to focus on how we could make an impact in the commercial sector, we uncovered that it was abandoned or lost plastic fishing nets that was causing environmental and economic damage at a huge scale. we wanted to create a technical solution with a very narrow focus; the fishing industry and the rescue Ghost fishing nets.
What it does do
An app intergrates with the remora net tagging hardware system, an app for fishermen to plan their net rescue missions.
The app uses predictive modelling to create an accurate map of future locations of lost nets for faster recall. this means that the fishermen avoid government fines and procecution - as well as the ocean being rid of lost fishing nets faster and easier.
How I built it
Storm glass api to pull in data about ocean currents - using numpy we where able to predict trajectories for the nets tagged with the Remora system. java in android studio to build the front end agile and design thinking methodologies iwthin the project management stage.
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
learning and building somnething together and ensuring that we're all having fun at the same time. making a great presentation
