We identified a problem that millions of people face everyday, being stuck in traffic is never fun. Our project looks to mitigate traffic with smart transitions, with future development to look into crash detection, thermal mapping and traffic mapping over many years to develop better roads in the future.
Working with hardware can always be difficult and finicky with numerous dependencies and limitations. We found the trial and error process quite exhausting and were often frustrated by parts failing "for absolutely no reason"(for many of which there were reasons) and swapped between numerous devices to determine the pros and cons of each device slowing the process significantly.
As a Makeathon project we aimed to learn about new technology through the application of computer vision and hardware to develop an IoT project. We felt that this project would have room for development and growth, with numerous potential spin offs.
