🥉 Hackathon Ótima (Smart Bus Shelter)

I'm excited to announce that I participated in the Smart Bus Shelter Hackathon organized by Optima and won third place with my project. As a solo participant, I focused on developing an innovative solution for public transportation users, focusing in acessibility.

Using the Cittimobi and Olho Vivo (SPTrans) APIs, combined with detection through beacons at bus stops, we are creating an application that assists visually impaired people in choosing their bus, knowing when it will arrive, and notifying the driver that there will be a visually impaired person at a certain bus stop.

The hackathon provided a platform to explore new ideas and solutions to improve the experience of commuters. My project included a smart display system that provided real-time bus schedules and directions to various destinations.

It was a great experience to be a part of a community of like-minded individuals working towards a common goal of creating smart city solutions.
