In class 2012 we thought of a minimum spanning tree application. Running races (that record times electronically) require runners to wear a chip on their shoes.
When the runner runs over special mats their start, end and middle time is recorded. Perhaps in the future a permanent version of this could be at every corner/intersection.
Why? to graph the speed of runners to improve their training, and to catch people who are off track or off task. (Less need for teachers to supervise, and SAFE!)
