What it does
Our platform helps in finding the closest trashcan to the user and the app provides navigation facilities as well.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Finding appropriate data to suit our needs. Kotlin integration with Google Maps API. Interfacing the server logic with Android App.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Completing an entire software product within 24 hours. Finding a way to integrate environmental issue with technology.
What I learned
Gained experience with server-side programming on Node.js. Gained experience with creating an Android App in Kotlin.
What's next for Trashify
Integrating features that would provide information on the type of trash cans as well. Integrate the app with DSNY API to continuously update data on the site. Extend this app to other cities where data is available.
