TAPAS
Hackathon 

The TAPAS Hackaton is an open invitation for exploring  the potential of using dynamic and accurate positioning data in a city by getting access to real time accurate positioning data from the TAPAS platform. (www.tapasweb.dk)

For 24-hours of intensive hacking and building in teams we will compete for the a prize of DKK 20.000! We hope to see you there!

ABOUT THE EVENT

 

For 24 hours 60 hackers and creatives will play, explore and build on top of positioning data using TAPAS! 

 TAPAS is “Testbed for Precision Positioning and Autonomous Systems” – a research and development platform for precise positioning. TAPAS provides an opportunity to test future needs for accurate and dynamic positioning data, and delivers a real-life test environment of city, harbour and air.

Learn more about TAPAS here: www.tapasweb.dk
The aim of the hackathon is for you and your team to come up with innovative solutions centred around positioning data, as we now have an great platform and lots of data to play around with. 

 

The overall winner will be rewarded with 20.000 DKK!

 The hackathon will be hosted at:  Aarhus University, Aarhus, and is organized together with Styrelsen for Dataforsyning & Effektivisering, IDA, ESA, IKT and Aarhus Harbor. 

THE IDEAS

We are looking for ideas and solutions driven by user needs, which provide:

  • New product ideas that use real-time hyper-precision data from TAPAS showing a potential for being commercialized.
  • New ideas for products or solutions based upon user needs that can be tested and developed for a commercial purpose using hyper-precision data from TAPAS.
  • New ideas that use TAPAS data combined with other sources of data that can create more effective work processes, helping to solve urban challenges. Eventually in combination with existing open public data.

We will have case presentations by respectively Aarhus Havn and IKT Aarhus – who will be present a range of different potential use cases that you can be inspired by when building the solutions

You can join as an individual or as a predefined team.
