22 – 26 MARCH
The Molière – Hackathon 2021 is created to identify the needs of mobility services, and to prototype ideas and products that will fuel the innovation stream of Molière concept and vision. By the creative and innovative use of digital technologies participants can create different solutions that benefit people and the mobility sector in a range of fields.
Teams should decide in the registration process which of these two challenges they would like to tackle during the Molière-Hackathon:
Challenge 1: Improve inaccurate geo-positioning of sharing vehicles due to critical zones of the city.
A frequent problem with urban sharing services is the lack of geo-positioning accuracy in certain areas of the city. Therefore, the first challenge aims to find solutions to improve the accuracy of positioning systems in order to potentially obtain more accurate data for the Data Marketplace.
Please find a full challenge description here.
Challenge 2: Smart contract definition for mobility data exchange of a marketplace.
When it comes to the technical aspects of a Data Marketplace configuration, a diverse set of relevant aspects need to be considered on the execution for the best practices of data sharing.
The second challenge of the Molière Hackathon aims at providing the technical architecture for the platform within the framework of a smart contract. Thus, participants are asked to define the protocols and tools that will be used during the data exchange in the open mobility data layer (MDM) with a special focus on geo-positioning data.
AND THE WINNERS ARE…
Winning Team: GeoCentric
The group presented their solution based on a map-matching algorithm to improve vehicles’ geolocation accuracy through GPS+GALILEO systems, and proposed an easier and faster way to find the SEAT MÓ fleet thanks to known parking spaces.
Winning Team: CityFy
The solution consists in the creation of an app that merge clients’ information and the main transport modes across the city, with the use of a smart contract that maps user’s displacement and share the data in the Blockchain network to be open to the public domain..
