After developing our idea further, here are the technologies we are planning to use to create our project:
For storage of collected data from our app. SQL may be more appropriate for its ordered approach, but does not work easily with Phonegap.
MongoDB has plugins for Phonegap and may be considered a newer technology, thus more appropriate for our brief. (MongoDB, 2017)
We will use Phonegap to build a basic app containing input fields that users can download. Phonegap has a handy online compiler, meaning that apps can be built quickly that will work across multiple mobile OS’s. (PhoneGap, 2017)
A Raspberry Pi will be used for input of data without the use of a mobile phone. This will be achieved by pairing it with a touchscreen hat. We will use this for presentation within the IVT.
Immersive Vision Theatre (IVT)
We will use the Immersive vision theatre for the large scale presentation of our project. Users will be able to come in and view their data visualized in real time.
