Smart transportation infrastructure is becoming the vein of our safe and fossil free future societies.
From enabling smart, maintenance free roads to connecting autonomous cars in direct communication to the infrastructure to enhance safety...many technologies for smart transportation infrastructures are being developed right now, but we are missing some essential systemic interfaces that will enable their sustainable implementation.
Can you be the team that helps come up with "The Concept" that makes smart infrastructure a reality?
Enabling future applications on top of data from IOT, sensors, LIDAR, weather, traffic and road network information is key to building smart infrastructure. Campus2030 is therefore launching a hackathon encouraging anyone interested in smart infrastructure to apply.
We believe diversity is key to great innovation!
If you are someone who works in areas connected to transportation infrastructure, or have programming skills without knowledge in this field, or think you can contribute, then sign up! You can team up with participants of complementary skills during the hackathon.
We want you to generate ideas that make these interfaces between various systems.
For example, what would it take for information from satellites to reach autonomous cars in real time, to influence a decision in driving.
The technology, the details of how the transmission of data would take place, the impact of this connection for society - this is of interest for this hackathon.
Develop this over Dec8-9, with mentors to give you input and submit a presentation for your idea. Code /pseudocode is also expected to demostrate the depth of thinking. Take a look a judging criteria to understand how the hack will be judged.
$799 in prizes
The members of the winning team will get an iPad.
Exclusive lab-tour, meet top scientists at KTH
The members of the winning team will get exclusive package, spending a day with top researchers from the Digital Twin Stockholm team(*) and KTH while getting an exclusive tour of the KTH laboratories including the Reactor Hall R1 under the KTH Central Campus(**).
(*) Curious about meeting the people that are building the Digital Twin Stockholm? You will get to sit down with the key players, see what data-sets they are trying to merge, hear about ongoing developments, such as standardization and get to ask them about the missing bits.
(**) The research infrastructures at KTH Royal Institute of Technology include large national research labs to smaller labs, and advanced and expensive instruments. Get an exclusive tour and meet with the top-scientists running the labs. You will learn both about the ongoing efforts and how the infrastructures are preparing for the future needs in science.
8 hours personal project/career coaching by two KTH Professors
The members of second best team win an 8-hour personal project/career coaching by two KTH Professors.
