AutoMobility LA Hackathon

Nov 17 - 19, 2019 · Los Angeles, United States of America

The Hackathon

Combine Los Angeles city data, use of Alexa skill(s), the Connected Vehicle Reference Architecture (CVRA 2.0) and the HERE Location Services – geocoding/search, fleet telematics, map data, navigation, routing and the SiriusXM Connected Vehicle Services drive, location and crash incident data.

Power providers in California, Oregon, and Washington are working together to determine the best strategy for developing an electric charging infrastructure supporting both electric vehicles and long-haul battery-electric trucks along the 1,300 miles of Interstate 5 from Mexico to Canada. The goal of this announced study is to determine impacts to the grid so that key locations for electric truck and vehicle-charging infrastructure can be identified and prioritized. Tesla, for example, said its 500-mile battery-electric Semi truck will consume less than two kilowatt-hours of energy per mile. That would require 1 megawatt of electricity, which is roughly the same amount of energy it takes to power 750 homes at once, according to the California Energy Commission.

The Challenge

Participants in the hackathon will be challenged to develop solutions that support:

  1. Smart-charging journey planning (ML for most convenient station, predict availability, advance scheduling, and reservation) including integrated payments

  2. Battery performance and analytics and calculating range based upon driving style

  3. Improving the in-vehicle experience (e.g. using Alexa for Automotive)

  4. Use vehicle and location data to create models for predicting either:

  • Driving range based on driving style

  • Impact/damage modeling based on real time vehicular data

Who Should Attend

Developers who are skilled in the following areas (but are not limited to) are highly encouraged to attend: Blockchain, Business Applications, Mobility as a Service, Connected Vehicle, Smarter Cities Solution Development, Content Delivery, Data Lakes and Analytics, DevOps, E-Commerce, High Performance Computing, Hybrid Cloud Architectures, Internet of Things, AI & Machine Learning, Mobile Services, Modern Application Development, Scientific Computing, Serverless Computing, Websites, Location Services, Security, Maps, Geocoding and Search Routing Fleet Telematics, Geovisualization, Advertising, Data Services and Tracking.

Judging and Prizes

Your projects will be judged on the following criteria: Innovation, Use of Technology and Impact.

  • Impact: Will this solution have a far reach and market potential?

  • Innovation: Is the project new and disruptive?

  • Technical Execution: How has the team effectively utilized the available technologies? How easy is the application to use? How advanced is the prototype presented?

$20,000 Prize Pool!

  • Grand Prize: $10,000

  • Runner Up: $5,000

Additional category prizes will also be awarded. Projects that win the Grand Prize and Runner Up are NOT eligible to win the category prizes. Categories are Impact, Innovation, and Technical Execution. All prizes will be divided equally between each member of the winning Team.

  • Impact: $1,000

  • Innovation: $1,000

  • Technical Execution: $1,000

  • TWO random drawings for all Qualified Solutions*: $1,000

* Solution that addresses the hackathon challenge, a solution that was presented during demos and is deemed by the hackathon organizers to be submitted in good faith
