Everyday students in colleges face issue of over crowding in places like libraries, mess, cafeteria and other similar places so we came up with a solution in form of an IOT enabled fullstack application.
What it does
So, we have used an ESP8266 micro controller which monitors the crowd in a specific area by checking the amount of wifi networking signals present in that area, this is then fed to flask and the we have configured it such that it produces estimates about the present crowd against the max amount of people that area/room/floor can accommodate at a time. All this is then passed on to the frontend to display to the users. Different locations can be added by the college/organization as per their requirements.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
One of the challenge we ran into make API calls to ESP8826 but we managed to solve this with the help of multithreading C++ by making multiple channels for the API calls.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that we could make a solution for students to save their time and also for organizations to help them manage the accommodations better.
What we learned
We learned a lot of new things about low level programming and embedded systems, And also got our hands on React Native.
What's next for Team Quasar
We wish to attend more hackathons and solve real world problems,
