E711 has received the following awards and nominations. Way to go!
u find in the following a description of our project:https://github.com/TeamE711/N.D.G.git
PS : the app prototype has been built using Justinmind software .
Please check the project updates to see the app Images.
Each Year Nearly 90,000 people die in naturaldisasters, after analysing the numbers we came up with this equation to represent the situation:
Natural disasters + People’s ignorance of Emergency scenarios=High rate of human loss.
So, how can we reduce the human loss?
Since we can’t change nature the only solution we have is to teach people how to react in case of natural disasters.
We at E711 came up with the perfect way to do so, which is creating a mobile application called N.D.G(Natural Disasters Guide).
N.D.G is a tool that helps people to:
To use our application, you must create a profile, filling up your personal information most importantly blood Type, Diseases, profession and your family members number phones.
Once you have created an account you can access your profile and choose a safe location (a place where you and your family members can meet after the disaster) an SMS will be sent automatically to your family members indicating them the safe location.
When you access N.D.G you find the following features:
Quiz: if you are not a fan of reading don’t worry N.D.G offers you a very entertaining way to learn about natural disasters through interactive fun quizzes .
Each week you will receive a reminder to pass the quiz this way u will remember your emergency plan effortlessly.
What’s more great about this list that u can customize it by adding other items as longs it doesn’t exceeds 8kg (if the weight of the bag after u add your items exceeds 8 kg you will get a warning in the application).
you will receive notification daily to remind u of the exercises.
We will work with a team of psychologists to develop this section.
First-Aid: this section contains instruction to do in case of any medical emergency like how to stop a bleeding, how to perform CPR.
We will work with a team of doctors and rescuers to create this section
you can customize the listby adding personal contacts if you want.
Around-Me: around-me is a helping network that can be visualised through this map, it shows the users of N.D.G around you in 1km radius using GPS.
In case of a natural disasters official authorities take up until 2 hours to arrive at the location sometimes, which can lead to high rate of deaths.
We at E711 tried to find a solution for this by providing a tool that gives civilians a chance to help each other in case of an emergency in an very organized way.
A user of our app can use the “I need” option and indicate if he is in need of something (food, shelter, a doctor) once he click he will automatically be shown on the map so other users can see him and help him if they can.
if a user needs a doctor, as soon as he indicates that in our app, a notification will be sent to users who are doctors (users who have indicated their profession as a doctor in the sign-up) who are close to him.
If a user wants to help others he can use the “I provide” option to indicates that he is providing food or shelter and he will appear on the map.
In case of an critical emergency (like a person being trapped) he can click on around-me button for 2S and a notification will be sent to people around him indicating that someone is in danger and he needs help.
We will use the prediction datafrom NASA and use it to send alerting notification to our users of natural disasters before it happens with a convenient time .
One of the Nasa Space Apps challenge mottos is Create a world where you want to live , we in E711 want to livein a world where people don’t die justbecause they don’t know or nobody have ever told them what to do in emergencies.
With our app we aim to save people life’s and help them to save each other
We want to reinforce the community by spreading solidarity sprit among its members .
And we won’t stop here we have high ambitious we will go beyond by a creating kid’s version of our application which contains fun games and special version for blind people using voice guiding.
