What it does
-Economize consumed energy -Monitor street traffic and road accidents -Gathers important information that will help police, fire fighters, ambulance etc..
How we built it
Using a microcontroller connected via GSM/GPRS network, sensors and detectors . And our knowledge in electronic engineering
Challenges we ran into
The technology (components and electronics) price in Algeria may cost more.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our cities are in need of such technology to involve into the next technology generation and the connected world .
What we learned
How we will lead our country to the industrial revolution and technology development
What's next for SMART STREET
