We're working on a project to enter into the Big Bang NW and after playing around with a few ideas we came up with the Kerbinator.
The Kerbinator is a button which, when pressed, records the GPS location of the button. The purpose is to crowd source data about where drop-kerbs are located. We want people to take this button and press it, every time they find a drop-kerb. The data will be written locally and then uploaded to a website once connected to wifi, then the co-ordinates will be plotted onto a map so that wheel chair users can plan their routes more easily, taking in the locations of drop-kerbs.
Once the button is complete we will make the schematic and design files open sourced and encourage makers across the UK to make their own to contribute data from they local area.
