The need for smart mobility solutions is growing and continues to change rapidly. How can we design mobility that it doesn’t just get more sustainable, more flexible and multimodal - but also personalized and trustworthy? The ANWB, Schiphol, NS and UtrechtInc think that technology and data are a key part of solving this puzzle. During the Dutch Mobility Hackathon these partners are making datasets & APIs available for 24 hours in order to discover new opportunities. Think about solving challenges such as traffic jams, flight delays, location services, road assistance, traffic safety, train outages and route guidance. Below are three specific challenges, but all innovative solutions for smart mobility are welcome. The best solutions will be awarded prizes - totalling over €12.000!
Challenge: Connected Cars
The ANWB is looking for innovative ways to integrate connected car technology within the services they offer. Which data can help a driver connected to internet even better - for example with traffic flow, safety, roadside assistance or maintenance? The ANWB is also interested in Mobility-as-a-Service, where travellers make use of mobility services from a provider instead of using transportation they own.
Challenge: First mile & Last mile
The NS wants to guide travellers through public transportation as smoothly and as personally as possible. The goal of this hackathon challenge for the NS is improvement of service for travelers between ‘the front door and the station’ and ‘from the station to the final destination’.
Challenge: Smart Travel
How do you help people traveling to and from Schiphol in making conscious decisions with maximum autonomy and flexibility? Consider innovative ways of providing travel advice, real-time integrated notifications, visualizations and forecasts.
Developers, designers, data scientists, mobility experts, business professionals, marketers and innovators. Employees from ANWB, NS and Schiphol will also participate. You can register by yourself or register as a team. During the kickoff we’ll help form up interdisciplinary teams. With regard to participants the main language during the event will be either English or Dutch.
Datasets & APIs
Our partners are offering access to a wide array of data (+20 datasets & APIs) so that you can analyze, combine and visualize to create the best innovations! Think about dumps and API’s about traffic history, roadside assistance calls, route information, braking events, actual flight, train and traffic information, travel advisories, outages, stations and gas station locations, and much more!
For 24 hours you work in a team to concept innovative digital solutions. With workshops and support from innovations experts and a pitch coach, you’ll work towards the finale on Saturday afternoon. Every team will pitch their concepts to the public and our jury from our mobility partners!
