2-1-17; 4B Update

Class 4B continued to work in their smaller groups. The coding group is now broken into three sections. One group is learning “HTML” language on Codecademy in order to design a website for the Fitbit app to link to. Another group is coding the actual app in Android Studio. Android Studio is coded in “Java”, which means the first version of the app will be tested only on Samsung phones as apple products work on a type of “R” language. The last group is researching options for a database web hosting service, as the website should store data sent to it from the Fitbit app. The data analysis group is looking through an extensive big-rig crash spreadsheet in order to find further correlations between fatigue and crashes, as well as calculating potential benefits, costs and lives saved, of reducing these types of crashes.
