One of the Google Summer of Code 2015 projects offered by 52°North is “Social Driving Stats”. It is a sub project related to 52°North’s enviroCar project. I will be working on this project under the mentoring of Dr.Christoph Stasch and Matthes Rieke. enviroCar offers a citizen science platform for collecting, analyzing, sharing and discussing car sensor data. Sharing specific tracks or statistics is currently not possible with enviroCar. The Social Driving Stats project aims to enhance the enviroCar with sharing facilities and social media links by implementing a REST interface for creating and providing track visualizations and statistics. Furthermore, enviroCar should be linked to social networks, such as Google Plus, Facebook or Twitter. Therefore, this project will utilize the APIs of these platforms and integrate them within the user profile pages of enviroCar.
