Hosted by the TAC Foundation, the Transportation Hackathon is a 48-hour problem-solving competition where multi-disciplinary student teams are challenged to address a real-world transportation issue. The hackathon will bring together a diverse mix of students and professionals from both transportation and relevant non-traditional/non-transportation specific disciplines. Teams of students, guided by mentors, will work together over a weekend to create integrated solutions to the hackathon’s central transportation ‘problem’, for the greater good of commuters and community.
The Transportation Hackathon will host 100-120 inventive, forward-thinking minds to change the status quo and create disruptive solutions for transportation issues. The event will bring together a diverse, multidisciplinary group to discuss issues affecting traffic; pitch and develop solutions over a two-day period; and present demos of their solutions to peers and a panel of judges for recognition, honours and prizes.
Team registration opens soon.
The Hackathon will take place in Toronto, in March 2019.
Sponsors are needed to support the event financially, and to serve as mentors, judges, and examples of industry leadership.
