Inspiration

In Los Angeles, known for its traffic and crazy drivers with over 50,000 cars accidents a year, a safe path would be an great!

What it does

Visualize dangerous areas for driving in Los Angeles. Use AI to plot a safe route. Forecast the safest times of the day and week to drive.

How we built it

  • MapBox
  • Dash
  • Prophet
  • Flask
  • Boostrap
  • jQuery
  • Pandas

Challenges we ran into

  • Building a navigation algorithm that avoids danger zones, in particular finding a good heuristic and translating it to MapBox
  • Hosting our fbprophet machine learning model on gcloud was a challenge given that pystancould not bee installed.
  • Integrating Flask and Dash

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • Successfully building the navigation algorithm

What we learned

  • Using the MapBox API
  • serving machine learning algorithms we trained ourselves
