Team Name: 

Safety is a major concern for all drivers on Victorian roads. Accidents often occurs when people are distracted, not paying attention to the road or where conditions make it hard to do so.


Introducing our iPhone app Promixity. Proximity uses traffic and other sources of historic data to warn users when they approach areas that are high risk. Using data sets such as accident occurrences and bridge information from Vicroads, we are able to warn users before they reach accident hotspots as well as warn truck drivers in advance before approaching bridges that are too low.
