Inspiration: VaLIVEtine keeps your loved ones safe on the road by connecting motion-sensing technology with your phone or smart watch. In 2014, 4,484 pedestrians and 726 bicyclists were killed in crashes with motor vehicles*. VaLIVEtine hopes to eliminate that statistic by sending vibrations to your smart watch or phone if an upcoming car is too close to you. We were able to do this by connecting a motion-sensor to a raspberry pi, which was then connected to the internet-- the motion sensor can then send notifications to Pushetta when an object is too close to it, which will alert the Pushetta user.
What it does: Motion sensor detects motion and at a certain distance it will send notifications through raspberry pi (connected to pushetta) which will alert pushetta user (on phone/watch) that a car is coming
