UC Route Assistant is a mobile web application that allows the user to input their schedule and needs and determines the most optimal appropriate route for them to take on campus. This application was originally inspired by the vast quantity of new students coming to UC each year. With over 7,000 new first year students in the 2019 Fall Semester (UC, 2019), it is apparent that there is a need for assistance navigating the large campus. We built a mobile web application that enables the user to upload their course schedules, extracurricular activities, and accessibility preferences. Leveraging Google Maps API, UC Route Assistant processes this information and determines the fastest route that the user can take in order to reach their various destinations, while accounting for accessibility preferences and other events. This results in less headaches having to reroute, less surprises running into blockades, and overall reduced travel time for the user.
