Bus Stop Alarm is finalist in Google “Juicy Ideas Collegiate Competition”

Have you ever slept, read, talked, or tweeted past your bus stop?

If so, then Bus Stop Alarm is the app for you!  Bus Stop Alarm lets users set a location-based alarm on their phone that will go off when they get close to a preselected bus stop.  Bus Stop Alarm is the first application to incorporate publicly available bus information and GPS in an innovative bus stop alarm system.

Bus Stop Alarm has just been named one of six finalists from across the nation in the Google “Juicy Ideas Collegiate Competition.” Teams from MIT, Stanford, and UC Irvine are among the other finalists.

Bus Stop Alarm began as a project for CSE 403, taught by professor Marty Stepp.  Watch the Bus Stop Alarm video here.

Congratulations to team members and UW CSE undergraduates David Truong, Huy Dang, Michael Eng, Orkhan Muradov, and Pyong Byon.
