Create a web app to visualize LiDAR data from self driving cars.
LiDAR is a way of obtaining an accurate 3D representation of a scene, often used in self driving cars to detect their surroundings. Lyft recently released a large dataset of sensor readings from their self driving car work: https://level5.lyft.com/dataset/
This would not only help people get more insight out of this particular dataset, but would provide a framework for anyone doing self driving car analysis to see their result and share their research. For inspiration you can see how people are analyzing this data in this Kaggle competition:
How much experience does your group have? Does the project use anything (art, music, starter kits) you didn't create?
