PROJECT: NAVIGATE THE MARS ROVER

Upload your code on GitHub and share the URL of your GitHub Repository in the project submission form. Along with the code, your GitHub Repository must also include a short video or a presentation that clearly demonstrate the workings of your application. This video must not exceed 7 minutes in length and must be in MP4, WebM, Ogg, AVI, or WMV format only. The presentation should be in PPT, Keynote (Mac), or PDF format only.

Using the learnings from the course, apply the shortest path algorithms to help the Mars Rover find the shortest path avoiding obstacles between the starting point and the destination marked by the user. Your application should let the user pick an algorithm of his/her choice for calculating and rendering the shortest path.

Check out Example 1 and Example 2 for inspiration on what you can build. The videos contains loud background music. Turn down the speaker volume before you play the videos.

JUDGING CRITERIA

Rest assured, you will be judged. No pressure. Winners of this Code-a-thon will be selected by a panel of judges that includes industry leaders as well as representatives from ABI India and Ace Hacker.

  • Bull's Eye

    Stay as close to the problem statement as possible. Your application should address one of the two problem statements mentioned above.

  • Code Quality

    Evaluate the technical achievement you and your team has tackled during the course of development of your application.

  • User Interface

    Could the user operate the application intuitively or did the UI failed to appeal to the user?

  • Demo

    Creating a world-class project, or world-changing one, requires the ability to get others on board.
