Campus infrastructure and San Luis Obispo having outdated facilities that are not always ADA complaint. We recognized this was an issue and could make navigating physical spaces difficult for those who are not able bodied.
What it does
Wheelway has built a database to rate locations as wheelchair friendly, partially wheelchair friendly, and not wheelchair friendly. In addition to this database, users can add to this database as they encounter issues with accessibility in real time.
How we built it
UX/UI prototypes were created with collaborative prototyping website Figma. Frontend was designed using Vue.js and Vuetify for css. With google maps api Backend was created using Node.js and MongoDB for handling URL Requests and data storage.
Challenges we ran into
Lack of support for Google Maps API. Executing design created by designers. Skillset of app dev. vs. web dev. Designing a logo that was a good balance of looking like a wheelchair but was also readable.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Code works UX/UI is cohesive Team of people who just met worked well together

What's next for Wheelway
