Road Buddy

By Hasan Haque

Team Movement


This Firefox OS app will allow pedestrians to route across the city (Point A to Point B) more safer way. This app retrieves crime rate in an area from data gov police API and find if there is any risky area (based upon crime rate) in between Point A and Point B. If the road buddy finds more safer ways to reach point B it will show the direction using google map. If the user like to go through the risky area this app will give an option so in case of an emergency it can send notification (SMS/CALL) to a predefined phone number.
