Route planner app for electric cars
GoGreen is a route planner app for electric cars. Type in your start location and your destination and GoGreen will plan the best route taking into consideration needed stops in recharge points, according to your car autonomy.
Wait until map is loaded. Insert Starting point, destination and car's autonomy into the fields with the same name. Click go! Computed route will load! Scroll down for route stats!
Allow geolocation! (should work anyway but you know...) Be sure to access trough https. We tested on Safari, Opera and Chrome. We mostly tested with routes between european cities, should work for US too, Asia and Africa have too little recharge stations to really plan effective routes.
Due to timing constraints some data in the stats section is mocked (the goals, shaped like circles). Also, css could have used some more tweaking (especially for mobile).
We started from this angular starter: https://github.com/angular/angular-seed
Lots and lots of bower components! jquery Materialize angular.js angular-materialize.js angular-route.js leaflet.js angularjs-geolocation ngAutocomplete angularjs-google-directions leaflet-routing-machine angular-count-to
Materialize for ui elements Google Maps Geocoding and Directions API api.openchargemap.io for charging stations positions
Love the UI
Would've been nice to be able to zoom in or out on the map, and mobile use would also have been great
I like the idea. The UI was a bit difficult. The search box and directions didn't collapse so they were in the way.
Mapped out my route but only found 1 place for me to plug in. I set my 'autonomy' to 200km and mapped a 700km route. I guess I'll be stuck on the side of the road with dead batteries!
I love this so much!!! This is such an awesome idea and is beautifully executed. An app for the future!
I like the layout and design, the iconography, and ease of use.
There were a few UI niggles, for example I couldn't zoom in and out of the map, it would scroll the page instead which is a bit hindering. It's a bit of a mess on mobile, but it looks great on desktop which is where I'd imagine the most use would be in the beginning.
I didn't find it clear what the "goal" charts (percentages and circles) were about; some clarification would be great in a future version.
These are minor issues however; overall, fantastic work! :)
very simplistic and nice looking site. You know what it's supposed to do instantly and it does it well.
- on Innovation because it's more or less just a pimped route planning tool.
Great work, but needs to be more user friendly. Maybe some text that will help people know what to do right away.
Great planning app that shows the benefits and savings by using green energy on transportation. Feature suggestion: zoom controls to improve route visualization.
Really cool idea. Would be cool to see travel time as well.
Super cool. Nice, clean deisign. If I had an electric car and lived in a country that has charging stations I would definitely plan my trips with this :)
looks great :)
this is perfect! :3
Nice idea, hope more people go green;)
I like the design and the idea. Now I know that it's impossible to travel from Mountain View to New York just using electricity :( I think it's useful feature but dunno if it will work as a WebAPP, probably it would be better as a plugin for a guidance system
The concept is awesome. Plus I now know, that I either need a Tesla or stop visiting my in-laws. I don't mind either way ;) Get the mocked data up and running, add a personalised profile and you are in business.
Wow! The design is amazing. Notifications, maps, graphs couldn't have been placed any better. I will use this application when electric cars become mainstream in India.
Looks great. But it's really need more friendly mobile support
Good stuff, though doesn't always find the route.
It is not possible from my city to go anywhere in the world with Electric car :D
Some slight responsive layout issues, but otherwise I think this is pretty neat. Well executed!
Great idea of the app! Nice design!
Love the design. Looks really good.
Pretty impressive for just 48 hrs :)
Oh, where is my Tesla 3? The app's idea is great, could be something real after some UX tweaks!
When I enter a route, I'd like to see the whole route. Not just the starting point. Missing manual controls such as zoom.
Amazing concept, really useful for a lots of users, looks great, fast.
I love it!
Other route planners for EVs look terrible, while this one looks super pretty. I like that I can select the range of my vehicle upfront.
Some things to improve upon:
There isn't any indication of activity when pressing GO button. I wondered if my click worked.
Being able to print or email directions.
Being able to zoom the map in/out. Similarly, the search box moving off the map once the results are loaded would be a big help.
I live close to a charging station so when my routes started out from home they usually went to the charging station first. This probably wouldn't be necessary as I should have a full charge leaving home. I can see why that wouldn't always be the case though.
Super useful app! Would have liked to be able to resize the map easier. Really fun to play around with.
