LYFE - Lower Your Fuel Emissions

Project Info

Project Description

An initiative created by two passionate Software Engineering students from the University of Canberra.

Rethink how you commute and help reduce your environmental impact.

Calculate your commute's carbon footprint and learn about the possible alternatives.

Data Story

Statistics about Canberra's commuters were used to estimate Carbon emissions p.a to be used as a comparison with the user's derived commute distance using Google Maps.
Alternatives are suggested, such as breaking up an entirely car commute to sharing the Carbon Emissions with other travelers by suggesting Park & Ride Locations.
