Workflow diagram of Urban Emergency
Imagine if there was an Alexa input point at every street corner and you need help ...
And imagine you have been robbed .... of your cell phone.
Imagine you are having a heart attack and cannot dial a phone.
Imagine you are a child and don't have a cell phone and there are no public pay phones.
Imagine there is a network failure due to terrorist or natural disaster.
Imagine your cellphone battery is at 1% ...
and imagine all you had to do was say: "Alexa - HELP!"
and help would be minutes away...
What it does
parses and routes help requests in an urban environment
How we built it
node.js + Lambda + Alexa
Challenges we ran into
'Help' is a reserved Alexa word and there is not a reasonable substitute. We imagine that AWS would help us in making an exception for this use case.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Simple but really important.
What we learned
Hackathon's are really really fun!
What's next for Urban Emergency
Pitch to Jeff Besos! Machine learning for feedback to improve system.
