Be part of the World’s First Intelligent Mobility Hackathon

Monday 7 September 2015

Join teams of experts to develop the transport solution of tomorrow at IMCreate 2015 - the Transport Systems Catapult’s inaugural Smart Transport Solutions Hackathon.

The Transport Systems Catapult (TSC) is holding a hackathon called ‘IM Create 2015’ focused around Intelligent Mobility (IM). This is part of its on-going mission to accelerate innovation in transport and you can be part of it. The event will use the intensive environment of a Hackathon event along with the transport data index by the TSC at www.imdata.co.uk to address critical problems within the UKs transport network. 

The event, to be held on 14th and 15th November, will bring together data scientists, software engineers, bsiness thinkers, marketers, and innovators. The key objective for this group is to actively develop solutions that address critical transport challenges. In addition to the participants, 50 public and private transport sector end-users and suppliers will also be present to frame the challenges in context. 

IMCreate will start in London with access to exclusive data sets as well as cutting edge hardware, and software. Teams will develop their ideas while travelling around on many forms of transport, ending with the train from Euston to Milton Keynes. The event will conclude at the at the Catapult’s groundbreaking Imovation Centre facility, home of the LUTZ pathfinder driverless car project

The catapult is keen to engage with recently finished PhD students.
