Create Your own Smart Infrastructure
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 part of the team that helps make smart infrastructure a reality?
8 December 20:00 - 9 December 18:00
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 with your ideas, then sign up! You can team up with participants of complementary skills during the hackathon.
We will have mentors and coaches who will help you along in the hackathon to come up with the best possible hack!
To get started on your ideas, extensive data sets from smart construction, road performance and autonomous driving will be provided. Mentors from the Swedish transport administration, industry and academia will coach the groups during the day.
The members of the winning team will get an iPad and an 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(**).
The members of second best team win an 8-hour personal project/career coaching by two KTH Professors.
(*) 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.
