    Background
    The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is an international competition held bi-annually, bringing 20 solar powered houses to the National Mall in Washington, DC. The University of Maryland is honored to be one of twenty teams selected from 45 entries to the Solar Decathlon 2011.
    Problem
    In Solar Decathlon 2007, the construction site for the University of Maryland’s entry was located in a heavily traveled area of the campus which served to keep the University community at large informed and involved in the project. For Solar Decathlon 2011, our construction site is on an edge of the campus, in an area that is rarely, if ever, visited by most students. In order to achieve a high level of involvement and interest in the project,
    Unfortunately, we needhad to find innovative ways to reachpull out to the campus community to involve it in this extraordinary undertaking. Additionally, once the house is moved to the National Mall, the audience for the app will broaden to hundreds of thousands of visitors that come to see the Solar Decathlon. There will be long lines and teams get points for keeping visitors engaged while they wait to tour the house.
    Audience
    Phase 1: 37,000 Students in one
    contest. Best of 127 undergraduate or 112 graduate degrees from 13 different colleges and schools
    Phase 2: Hundreds of thousands of visitors to the Solar Decathlon 2011
    Solution
    This app gives students a real-time look into the dynamic development of WaterShed, the University of Maryland’s solar house, in an easy convenient manner, producing virtually the same effect as walking by the construction site, thereby bringing the construction site instantaneously to your fingertips.
    The app will have information about the team, including the team’s philosophy and mission, and information about the house which will be of interest to architects, engineers and everyone in between.
    During construction, users will be able to see the overall progress on construction through updates and pictures from the site. As the house systems come online, users will be able to see information about the performance of the house systems, such as how much energy the solar panels are generating.
    As construction progresses, the app will transform, through the change in available data, into a resource for holding the interest of those waiting on line on the National Mall for a tour of the house. This will allow visitors to gain preliminary knowledge about the house so they can ask educated questions once they enter.
    Risks
    Certain data about the workings of the house during construction will need to be private to preserve the team’s competitive edge. We do not yet know exactly what information will be available from the house. We do not yet know how we will operate the server-side portion of this app. We do not have any experienced mobile programmers.
    Technology
    We are planning on a hybrid application for iOS devices with the potential to be easily converted to Android. It is important
    luck to us that this app can be opened and be usable in a limited sense without an active internet connection.everyone.
