Mateo and Trager, students in TCC Professor Lisa Carter’s information technology class, earned the accolade for their mobile app designed to provide information on the make, model and price from a user-entered picture of a motorcycle.
The app was created for Cycletraders.com, a site similar to eBay for motorcycles. Mateo said the app would eliminate the paperwork and time it takes to decipher all the information on a motorcycle that a prospective customer might want to buy. Instead, all the details about the bike would be available simply by snapping and uploading a picture.
“It was pretty intense,” said Mateo, who worked alongside Trager and a coaching staff from Dominion both days. “We developed a pretty sharp looking app that is usable, too.”
Mateo and Trager each brought home a Samsung Galaxy tablet along with their trophy and praise from their professor.
“They beat teams from VCU, William and Mary, CNU, NSU and ECPI,” Carter said. “I am extremely proud of their efforts.”
