CaCarma – Mobile Media Final Proposal (11/16/2010)

For my final project in Mobile Media, I plan to make a mobile web application for drivers.  The app would have two major functions:

1. Help drivers avoid speeding tickets through a publicly shared speed-trap tagging system.

2. Help drivers travel at a constant speed without using cruise-control, by inputting a desired speed range.


In the “trap tagging” mode, drivers simply tap the screen to tag a speed trap at their current location.  When a driver approaches a tagged trap, they are notified ahead of time of its location and encouraged to slow down.


In the “target speed” mode, users input a upper and lower limit to their speed.  Should they drive too fast or too slow, the app notifies them with visual and auditory cues, assisting them in staying within their desired range.
