ITS Hackathon

Go back to MOBiNET Bordeaux Showcase
 

The ITS Hackathon took place within the Bordeaux ITS World Congress main programme from 6 to 8 October 2015.

The Hackathon targeted academics from universities and research centre, start-uppers, designers, developers and service providers. The challenge was to come up with new ideas and apps for mobility or safety services using the different components of the MOBiNET e-marketplace as well as the services developed in MOBiNET and traffic- and transport-related data available in the Platform Service Directory

Participants could also develop new services for the platform including functionalities that can be used by other services and could eventually become platform standard features.

The developed services should be designed with a European dimension in order to support the vision of a European wide e-market place. So the developed service should emphasize “mobility”, i.e. be designed to work in multiple locations in different countries.

There were two categories for types of services which participants could develop and prize categories for which they could compete:

  • road safety (sponsored by eSafety Aware)
  • intelligent mobility (sponsored by MOBiNET)

There were two prizes per category: €10k prize money and an incubation package to develop their concept into an operational service and demonstrate it at the European ITS Congress in Glasgow in 2016.

The teams had two days to code and on the morning of the third day, they presented their prototyped solutions to a jury of top ITS managers, who marked them on the level of execution, presentation, user experience, innovation, business potential and realisation of the MOBiNET vision.
