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 at Ryerson University, January 18-20, 2019.
Sponsors are needed to support the event financially, and to serve as mentors, judges, and examples of industry leadership.
