Best Idea: InforMobile
InforMobile is a ridesharing safety app for autonomous vehicles that helps riders feel comfortable and confident while riding in an autonomous vehicle with people that they don’t know. This app will allow users to request rides based on their needs, such as cargo space, accessibility, and even style. Riders immediately have access to information about the autonomous vehicle as well as those who would be riding with them, giving them the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the environment as well as the option to cancel their ride.
Best Pitch: Ambrosia
Jean Rommel Marquez
Ambrosia is a social media app that is centered around food. Users create profiles where they share their likes and cravings, connecting with others with similar tastes. Users can follow each other and share, like, and comment on posts. Through this, Ambrosia creates a community around food, allowing food enthusiasts to share their food and cravings, local providers to promote their own businesses, and users to decide what to eat.
