Realtime Transit on Google Glass Mark Silverberg / @Skram
About Me & Social Health Insights Me! Healthcare hacker + biz student! Previously: Dual analytics/ engineering team member at a consumer health website! ! Social Health Insights! Yes, we really found each other via Twitter (nurse + developer)! We won a HHS challenge and formed company to pursue our passions: health + IT innovation! Clients from federal/state gov’t to WHO, Intermountain, & startups! Custom development & consulting
Started with a personal need I received Glass.. but it wasn’t clear when the built-in directions app is using real time versus schedule data! I wanted to see all my options in one list sorted by time! I also want to reach my physical activity goals which means more walking depending on the time trade-off
So… I built it Testing ‘Ask DC Metro’ at NoVA Open Data Day
Flow 1. Install from askopendata.com! 2. Activate from Glass! OK, Glass! Take a note! Ask DC Metro! What are my transportation options from Union Station? 3. Use from Glass! Scroll through results! Can be read aloud! Pin to favorites for easy access and updating at will
How? Ruby + Sinatra - ! Bootstrap web foundation! PostgreSQL for data store - for storing ! Many APIs - there is no one free API for area transit data (yet?). I query WMATA, NextBus, OneBusAway (thanks MobilityLab!), Capital Bikeshare, and more. ! Tropo for SMS - It’s important to me that this information is available for people without Google Glass
More than just Metro AskOpenData.com (demo video: ! HHS/NIH/NLM Pillbox! What is this purple capsule that’s about 12 mm?! CivOmega (a Sunlight Foundation funded project)! What bills are about medicare reform?! When has Beyonce visited the white house?! Wolfram Alpha! Includes census data, ICD codes, drug interactions, more! ! DawnData.com - Google Analytics reports sent to your Glass
