Car battery safeguard

The idea

The aim of the second edition of Dev’sKitchen hackathon is a system responsible for informing the driver about the problems which may occur with his car battery especially when the temperature falls below zero Celsius degrees.

The system consists of a small IoT device connected to a car battery. It monitors the voltage level and sends the collected data to cloud where data is analysed in terms of voltage anomalies which indicate that the battery will die in a certain amount of time. If such event occurs the SMS message is send to the user in order to inform him and let him react in advance.

Fun

Fatigue, stress associated with passing time and conflicts with co-workers often pose an insurmountable problem. As far as the latter requires more engagement, boredom and tension need certain measures to be taken that are quite easy to implement. Psychologists usually recommend alleviating methods of unwinding in a relaxing and calm environment.

However, we approached this problem a bit less conventionally, thanks to help of our world-famous, but a little underrated advisor – Bartosz
Jędrasik, who suggests to apply these methods for rebooting our inner system

Tin of Taran

To help realize the team's full potential they are given access to the extremely potent Tin Of Taran. It is a drink with mystical powers enchanted by asking the great masters living secluded lives in temples far atop mountain peaks \"How to best motivate a team of aspiring developers?\" for so long they started crying tears of pure wisdom. Their occular drippings were later canned into this limited edition beverage, only to ever see the light of day on special, history-altering occassions... such as this one.
