Are you up for the
challenge? Create your own solution for making Helsinki a smarter city
by using the city's and other data sources on INDRA/Minsait's Onesait
IoT and Big Data platform. In conjunction with the Select4Cities
project, a hackathon is organized in Helsinki and Antwerp. Sign up for
the hackathon now, or join the information event in Espoo to learn more
about the platform and the challenge.
The aim of the hackathon is to bring together a diverse range of perspectives, from academics to entrepreneurship
and professionals to create innovative smart city solutions utilising
Big Data and IoT. Participants will compete by developing a prototype
using Onesait platform capabilities to improve Antwerp Smart Zone and
Helsinki's Jätkäsaari area.
Some examples of possible solutions;
new sensors to let the city speak (noise source detectors, crowds),
gadgets and public devices for citizen interaction (actuators, sensors)
or apps to increase city interactions or any other way to understand the
Talk of The Town and improve citizens life.
have to be created on top of INDRA/Minsait's Onesait Platform. You can
use the wide selection of tools provided on the platform and the Data
Sources loaded for both Antwerp and Helsinki environments. Examples of
loaded data include air pollution, traffic flow and maritime traffic
data. If you need it, you can upload your own Data Source.
