Figuring out how many solar panels would fit on your roof and how much yield they would generate used to be a time-consuming task. Autarco wanted to simplify this proces by developing a web-based design tool. The goal was to let dealers and customers easily design by simply drawing your roof on a satellite map and let the tool calculate how many panels would fit on your roof and how much power it would generate.
I've delivered a working solution using React, Typescript, Turf.js and many other libraries
During this project there were several technical challenges, but not limited to:
- Implementing draw functions on a map provider
- Optimizing geospatial calculations to efficiently provide results in a browser
- Integrate complex geospatial algorithms in cooperation with physics experts
