Bikepacking: Data to information using google cloud functions
Kartik Arora (~kartik53) |
The Bikepacking project is a unique community driven project to collect data across India.
Under the bikepacking project, we will have ~30 bikers across india, who would travel and help capture data.
We provide each rider with a data collection kit.
- Bikepacking Companion App
- Bikepacking Collector Device
And this kit helps to capture the following data.
- Positional/Orientation data
- Environmental data
- Misc data
- Quality of life data
This raw data is then pushed to a firebase realtime database.
Now, there is a need to translate this raw data to Information
Data -> Information -> Knowledge
To acheive this we are creating a set of google cloud functions.
- Pothole detection
- Journey Summarizer
In this sprint, I hope to have contributions to these functions and help us improve the quality and impact of the data we capture.

Video explaining the project:
I am the founder of Akriya Technologies, a digital transformation agency.
I like to describe myself as a flexible opinionated guy. It was the summer of 1999 when my father got a PC home, and since then it has been hard to part me away from a system.
