This report is a summary of the NowDrive project, NowDrive is an application that focuses on calculating car routes from point A to point B with safety in mind and to avoid potentially dangerous roads that are accident prone. The target group for this application would be New or Learner drivers which would help them plot easier and safer routes which helps them avoid possible accidents that may lower insurance premiums if accident free for the first 5 years of getting the insurance.

The report addresses various headings that discusses a wide variety of details about the project. A high-level view of the current state of NowDrive would be that currently where the project stands it has a very solid backbone that can easily be worked from, it also achieves all requirements outlined in this document.

There are however no APIs or sources of data that can be utilized for the calculation of routes as required currently and, in its place, static data had been created manually by referencing the map of collisions in Ireland provided by the RSA (RSA, n.d.) to be used in the calculation of routes. This has resulted in the number of accidents in the IFSC area being as the only factor in the algorithm when calculating routes. Regardless, all features are functional and scaling upwards to support additional factors can easily be implemented once the data is made available.
