5GMETA Second Hackathon
22-23 May, Lisbon
Over a span of 28 hours, 13 participants from start-ups and SMEs were tasked with developing innovative solutions and working prototypes, utilising the dataflows provided by the 5GMETA Platform.
The primary objective of the 5GMETA project is to exploit data captured from cars and roads in order to encourage and enable the development of innovative products and services. In pursuit of this goal and to test its Platform, the consortium organised the project’s second Hackathon during the recent ITS European Congress in Lisbon.
Three teams and three innovative solutions
The Second Hackathon yielded three progressive solutions proposed by the participating teams. The first solution addressed the challenges of car parking and supporting local businesses. This innovative solution aimed to optimise parking space utilisation and enhance the overall parking experience for drivers while boosting local economic activity.
The second solution involved a dashboard which uses data from various sources to reconstruct accident dynamics accurately. By fusing information from different sensors and data points, this solution provided a comprehensive understanding of accidents, aiding in accident analysis and response improvement.
The third solution introduced a platform allowing road operators to effectively communicate road status information to drivers. This would enhance overall road safety and improve traffic management.
