One of our team members was inspired by an article she read about the future of recycling EV batteries. The idea was since recycling EV batteries is in its infancy, we could start capitalizing on the business now.
What it does
Our product is designed to help consumers make informed choices about what EV batteries are and what they should do with them when it reaches the end of its life. Consumers can upload important data about their EV battery, such as where what car it belongs or how long its been in use and from there customers have two options; they can either locate a recycling center nearby they can send the battery to or they can sell their battery to us.
How we built it
First, we started by design the overall look of the website. We used Adobe XD to create the UI. Then we coded the website between two teams. We wanted the website to be easy to navigate for our users.
Challenges we ran into
It was difficult trying to work around everyone's schedule. Not everyone could make it to the meetings so we would have to find other ways of communicating.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of what our team was able to create despite living in different time zones and having work schedules.
What we learned
To always communicate and speak up for yourself. You never know if your idea may be used.
What's next for Sustainable Energy - Team 8
We hope to finish creating the other parts of the website and hire an experienced programmer.
