THE CHALLENGE: 

BLOCKCHAIN in MOBILITY

Blockchain is one of the technologies which could disrupt the way various industries work. Join our hackathon to explore, which role blockchain could play in the future of mobility. Be bold, be creative!

We have 3 challenges you can choose from:

Blockchain empowered vehicles
#AutonomousDriving #ImmutableData #InsurancesX

Vehicles are getting smarter and more autonomous, but any smart system needs reliable information to excel. Can Blockchain technology help building dependable data sources for autonomous cars and commercial vehicles, or verifying recorded traffic data for insurance purposes?

Blockchain empowered mobility infrastructure
##ChargingInfrastructure #Vehicle2X

The evolution of modern mobility includes infrastructure as much as vehicles. Can we leverage Blockchain technology to secure communication between vehicles and smart infrastructure? Will we be able to pay the charge for our electric vehicles with a service you built on DLT?

Blockchain empowered mobility services
#SharedMobility

Car sharing and ride hailing services are growing in popularity. How does Blockchain technology enable us to make transactions and entry even more secure? Will it even allow for competely new business models by eliminating the need for trust?
