Event description

Description

The oneTRANSPORT ideathon brings together authorities and solution vendors to innovate in a way that regional needs are effectively addressed, while offering a new distribution channel for fast adoption of products at national and international scales.

The Challenge: Before the Ideathon, Solution Masters will come up with a data-driven solution or product that uses data from authorities. At the end of the Ideathon, the idea should integrate into an existent open marketplace for data and services, which enables discoverability of solutions, national/international transferability or expandability, data/service transactions (distribute for free or at a cost) integration of datasets, and use of already integrated datasets.

Putting the challenge into context: Successful ideas to solve problems for the Ideathon may have some of these components: integration of datasets, innovative visualisation/dashboard proposals, added value to data feeds, or creation of new services based on combining existent and/or future data from databases, web sources or sensors. Some of the already available datasets in the marketplace for reference are: parking information, traffic, journey time estimations, VMS, road loops, roadworks, etc. The polished final solutions at the end of the Ideathon should demonstrate viable business models and advantages to communities, authorities and commercial partners.

The process:

  1. For Solution Masters, indicate you want to present a seed idea or product to work on the day by emailing ideathon@onetransport.uk.net

  2. For Solution Masters, give a brief 5 min presentation on the idea at the start of the event

  3. For Ideathon Participants/Teams, once ideas are presented, teams will be created to further develop ideas or align them in a way they can be extendable and have even greater value in a marketplace

  4. Prizes will be given to the best teams and solutions



Prepare your ideas and let us know if you want to become a Solution Master!

For authorities: How can Local Authorities best use their available data and get it out to market whilst maintaining control, stimulating innovation and avoiding vendor lock-in?

For vendors: How can data-driven solutions expand rapidly nationally and internationally whilst minimising costs and becoming discoverable?

oneTRANSPORT is creating an open marketplace for data and data services based on open international standards for the Internet of Things. This growing framework is intended to offer more control to data publishers at a reduced cost, and at the same time enable new discoverable and interactive distribution channels for solution providers.
The ideathon brings together authorities and solution vendors to innovate in a way that regional needs are effectively addressed, while offering a new distribution channel for fast adoption of products at national and international scales.
For the ideathon, oneTRANSPORT is looking for solutions that can use or benefit from a combination of multiple datasets offered through an open marketplace. The most stimulating solutions and ideas will be presented at the beginning of the event to form multi-sided groups that will either co-create more elaborated solutions or polish initial ideas into commercial offerings. All the final solutions will be pitched to a judging panel at the end of the day. Prizes are available for a number of categories and of which will follow in due course.
