What's not to like about FLL: legos, robots, tournaments, and team spirit. We like working together as a team. Most of us have been together since last year, this is our second year in FLL. It's a lot of work but if done right it pays off and we have a lot of fun. We've thought of some unusual ideas this season and talked to a wide variety of people while researching this invention. It's exciting to explain our project invention to professionals and have them really understand what we're trying to do.
Brief Submission Description:
The EVT is a device to help not only senior drivers, but all age drivers and provides an extra set of 'eyes' and 'ears' when active emergency vehicles are around. It is connected inside the car and is attached to either the dashboard or windshield, where its display can be seen by both driver and passengers. It's programmed to alert the driver when an emergency vehicle is within range to help prevent accidents.
