18 - Today's Trip

Calculate environmental and economic impact of a given trip by different cars/mobility options

The Paul Scherrer Institute has developed an open source tool for analysing the environmental and economic impact of current and future mobility options: carculator. The aim of this challenge is to allow people to provide inputs for a specific trip (e.g. car type/size class, trip distance, exact route) to see the difference between using combustion and electric mobility in a graphically interesting way. Specifically, we would need to:

  • Enhance calculator tool with energy consumption for ascending, and energy recovery while descending
  • Add vehicle-specific parameters from one of the public databases
  • Get routing from Open Route Service
  • Work on a web GUI with nice maps
All attendees, sponsors, partners, volunteers and staff at our hackathon are required to agree with the Hack Code of Conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to ensure a safe environment for everybody. For more details on how the event is run, see the Guidelines on our wiki.
