The main problems we had to deal when finalising the concept for this prototype was how it could be misused and scrapping connectivity with the camera and the website.
It could potentially have been misused the same way that many projects focused on safety in cities and towns can go. Products and apps that let users report issues in their neighbourhood and town are often misused by people who have petty issues they want to resolve or will mislabel something completely fine as an issue due to their own issues. As well as it being the springboard for completely unwarranted vigilantism. This was avoided by just having the website be something the users can view and use in their day to day lives.
The connectivity issue became a problem early. At first due to issues with the hardware. As the Arduino based product required specific hardware that would’ve ruined the lightweight approach and made both the website and the hardware a much clunkier product and process. When trying to connect with the code side of the website it became apparent that automation was prone to errors or mislabelling the result. Since the data could switch in a second it became more apparent to collect and categorise which streets have more speeding issues in bulk amounts instead of case by case.
