ABOUT THE PROJECT.

As stated by Lisa, cycling is  great for improving physical and mental health, as well as benefitting the environment by reducing our overall carbon footprint. Cycling however, can at times be a little terrifying, and this is the inspiration guiding her Predict A Trip project. Her intention is to make cycling safer and more accessible via the Predict A Trip application. Predict A Trip embeds augmented reality (AR) to provide features related to safety whilst cycling.

Throughout the early stage of the project, Lisa had some difficulties with the AR. Fortunately, after putting in the effort to overcome these obstacles, she believes things turned out well and is satisfied with the outcome. For the near future, Lisa aims to gain a deeper understanding of software and program language, as well as AR, to develop more applications that enhance and positively contribute to society.
