Travelling in Serbia by motorcycle.

What it does

Basically , while you are riding, it tells you the directions just like a GPS assistant, but through vibrations.

How we built it

We send directions from a mobile phone to an arduino via a Bluetooth shield. The arduino controls the vibration egines.

Challenges we ran into

First of all , getting directions requires heavy computations and lots of linear algebra knowledge. We have currently some issues with the Here Maps sdk, but they will soon be fixed. The next challenge is to create a protocol for communication between the phone and the arduino.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We'll tell you about that soon enough.

What we learned

Teamwork and dedication solve issues. Lacking sleep and being frustrated don't.

What's next for SmartHelm

A cool demo, hopefully... plus some additional functionality.
