She created an app called BlueJay. The app connects through Bluetooth to an Intel Edison that is attached to a drone.  She built it to help emergency responders  fly the drone  over areas that have been impacted by disasters. The drone can collect data, such as GPS location, from those who are stranded. The Edison stores all of the information it collects in its internal storage, and once it has returned to emergency responders.  it runs a script to upload all of its data to the cloud. Another script is run to download updated information to be sent to the users when it flies back out into the field. And for those in the know:  Sara used  Swift3 with Xcode, and programmed the scripts for Edison in Python and Javascript.
