Don't crash

Team Name: 

Car crashes are not caused on their own. They are influenced by a number of factors which play an integral role in the severity of the crash.

For GovHack 2016 we have focused on Queensland crash data looking from the perspective of non-controllable aspects such as crashes triggered by animal hits. We have presented the information through a website which aims to inform the general public about areas which have had previous incidences with animals.

Accident Tracker

Team Name: 
Kids Team

Accident tracker is a real time web app that allows you to access data on recent traffic incidents. The data is displayed on a map with a table for more details. Using this data you can improve transport infrastructure, this allows better use of road upgrades. The purpose of this project is to better connect queensland.

Commonly we are in favour of tackling the root problem instead of easing symptoms. However, this is what transport is doing for decades. The view has shifted from building more and more infrastructure to using existing infrastructure more efficiently, but it is generally accepted that demand is growing and that it needs to be accomodated. But is this true? Engineers aim to learn from nature and incorporate natural phenomena in projects and one of these phenomena is the natural pulse of a city, area, or region. Travel demand is not a root cause, but simply the result of the need to travel.

The “GetThere” Concept


GetThere is a mobile application to help members of local communities and people new to the area locate services and facilities. It is the answer to show points of interest including bus stops, community services, activities, parks, community groups, and hospitals, with audible and visual directions to the selected locations using maps and directions to public access points.
