Abstract

The goal of this project is to develop a suite of applications for the WPI community and police department to streamline the SNAP service. We have developed an app for students to request a SNAP ride for their phone, a website for a SNAP dispatcher to view current rides and assign them to a van, a tablet app for a co-driver to view a list of their rides, and an admin portal to manage the SNAP service. While we originally planned to conduct actual in-person trials during the final term of this project, COVID-19 prevented us from doing such. As a workaround, we completed a battery of simulations to ensure the software suite can be readily deployed in the future.
