    Rating the safety of GPS directions in Philadelphia

    Why

    After taking a rather "sketchy" drive through North Philadelphia, I realized GPS apps do not tell users how safe their drive will be. Sketchadelphia allows drivers to gauge the safety of their drive ahead of time, creating much needed peace of mind.

     

    How

    You may read the technical documentation on the GitHub repo.

  • DOORA

    Unlocks doors automatically in the event of a fire.

    About

    Door Opener: Operation Rescue Assistence

    Built by a team of Bishop Shanahan students, DOORA uses technology to save lives in an innovative way.

    Why?

    Save lives, Save money

    Firefighters spend 2+ minutes knocking down residential doors. These two minutes could be the difference between life and death for trapped residents. In less extreme cases, this forced entry adds additional financial burden to families who have just experience a home fire.

    How?

    All the deets.

    Arduino based sensors are placed throughout the home. Upon detection of a fire (abnormally high temperature) a message is sent wirelessly to the custom built DOORA lock. The door remains closed but unlocked. Fire companies already train their officers to "try before you pry."
