Description

Traffic jams getting you down? Want to cycle more safely? The TIMON hackathon is the ideal place to think outside the box to come up with new and innovative ways to reduce urban pollution, improve traffic/pedestrian safety and achieve more flexible travel planning.

With a €6,000 Prize Pool, the event is aimed at people with an interest in open data or transport from students to transit authorities, from train spotters to cycling vultures, no matter who you are, your skills or your level of expertise, you are invited to join us.

The event will be hosted by Queen's University Belfast at their newly opened Computer Science Building, showcasing the TIMON application and open ecosystem giving attendees full access to transport and environmental data from Belfast, and transport, environmental and traffic data from Helmond (Netherlands) and Ljubljana (Slovenia).

What is TIMON?

The TIMON project has as its main objectives to increase the safety, sustainability, flexibility and efficiency of road transport systems using cooperative communication by processing open data related to mobility through an open web-based platform and mobile app, developed with the purpose of delivering information and services to drivers, businesses and vulnerable road users in real time.

What will happen at the Hackathon?

You’ll be given complete access to the TIMON Rest API, our proprietary route-planning algorithms and our Android/iOS mobile app SDK, and you’ll be thinking outside the box to come up with new and innovative ways to reduce urban pollution, improve traffic/pedestrian safety and achieve more flexible travel planning.

Open data will be made available as part of a collaboration with transport authorities and local government in Belfast, Helmond (Netherlands) and Ljubljana (Slovenia).

What will be included during the Hackathon?

There will be an opening reception on the evening of Friday 19th January. Lunch and refreshments will also be provided on both the Saturday and Sunday of the event. Attendees will however be expected to bring their own laptops.
