Finding The Safest Route

ACADEMY AT PALUMBO • Pennsylvania

Project Information

Academy at Palubmo’s project focuses on the personal safety of students when traveling through the Philadelphia area. Specifically for students who frequently come to school early and stay late for extracurricular activities. Due to recent budget cuts in Philadelphia, a large number of high schools closed down, displacing students and giving them longer walks through dangerous neighborhoods. To ease this transition, this project aims to design a system that can evaluate travel routes for relative safety, so that the most efficient and safest travel routes can be planned and communicated to the community at large.
