THE IAA MOBILITYTHON.COM

SOFTWARE DEVELOPER CONTEST IN MOBILITY

IAA MOBILITY, Munich
05. - 10. September 2023

Demand

The mobility sector is facing enormous challenges. New drive concepts require not only interaction with intelligent infrastructure, micro-mobility complements inner-city traffic but also the right talents with the fitting solution. Where neither the solution is clear nor companies are established, prototype.club helps.

Goal

Innovative startups and tech talents work in competitive mode on functional prototypes for industry challenges in a 14-day developer sprint before and during IAA Mobility 2023 (05th-10th Sep 2023). The team with the best solution receives a follow-up order.

→ iaa.prototype.club is the professional hackathon with physical „live coding“ during IAA Mobility 2023

Benefits for challenge setting companies

  • Presenting the company as „Open Innovation Ready“ with a „new way of working“ attitude to attract new skilled talents
  • 14 days before and during the IAA „experience digitization haptically“

Process

  • Definition of a challenge together with company
  • Prequalification of suitable expert teams
  • Competition in compliance with public procurement law: Startups are supported in the creation of functional prototypes 14 days before the IAA Mobility
  • Main prize: Follow-up contract of the winning team by the challenge company
► Win follow-up contracts or 5,000€ in prize money!
► Become a new service provider or employee!
THAT IS IN IT FOR STARTUPS

Some impressions

At the IAA Mobilitython 2022, we had three challenges given by Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt, Enpulse and Die Autobahn. One night we hosted the I/O Mobility Tech Forum with a panel discussion on today's digital implementation of the mobility transition. We also hosted the VDA & IAA Startup Night which was a great opportunity for networking.

THE CHALLENGES

COMING SOON!

Challenges from the IAA Mobilitython 2022

null

DLR challenge – Image recognition software

Improvement of image recognition for the detection of vehicles for the Lower Saxony test field, in particular along the A39. For this purpose, image recognition software for real-time detection of vehicles is to be adapted or developed. The image recognition software should precisely recognise and localise the detected objects.

null

Enpulse challenge – Data-based business models

Develop innovative data-based business models in the mobility context, based on the Switchboard API (PV forecast, green power index, Mercedes charging data) or with other data.

null

Die Autobahn challenge – Floating car data

If geolocation and vehicle data are known in real time (e.g. floating car data from toll OBUs, tachography, etc.), can e.g. forecast for traffic jam or road conditions be made even more accurately if several vehicles brake or suddenly switch on the windshield wiper at the same time in the same place?

Fraunhofer

Fraunhofer challenge – Optimize daylight harvesting systems

You can pitch your results either onsite or virtually on Nov 17.

Since irregularities occur due to various work in the barn, we want to install an animal welfare-friendly daylight harvesting monitoring system in a chicken barn through Computer Vision. Daylight harvesting systems use daylight to offset the amount of electric lighting needed to properly light a space, in order to reduce energy consumption. This is accomplished using lighting control systems that can dim or switch electric lighting in response to changing daylight availability.

Goal

On the basis of computer vision, the potential for optimal use of daylight is to be determined. For this purpose, the participants will receive data from the Fraunhofer Institute at the virtual kickoff.

Background

Due to the natural rather dim environment, the eye of the poultry has adapted. Daylight that is pleasant for humans is often too bright and discomforting for poultry. On the other hand, the birds can see less well at night, so a barn that is too dark leads to poor orientation and thus less feed and water intake. Therefore, it is important to have a lighting programme that optimally fulfils animal welfare needs. The lighting programme can influence movement activity, feeding behaviour and feather pecking. Sufficient lighting and light promote health and encourage the broilers to grow healthily. Ideally, the barn has sufficiently large windows because it is not always possible to give the animals free access. Then it is good if sufficient daylight enters the barn.

Your impact

The results are used for studies on the development of new daylight harvesting systems. Win a follow-up contract based on your prototype and 100-days-MVP-concept!
