Come and join the TIMON Hackathon, which will be hosted on 19-21 January 2018 by the Queen's University Belfast at their newly opened Computer Science Building!
The TIMON project seeks to increase the overall safety, sustainability, flexibility and efficiency of road transport systems. TIMON partners believe that the persisting problems related to congestion, traffic safety and environmental challenges could be solved, if people, vehicles, infrastructure and businesses were connected into a cooperative ecosystem. The creation of such an ecosystem, which will rely on cooperative networks and open data, is one of the key objectives of the TIMON project.
The TIMON Hackathon will help the project partners to collaboratively identify with you the commercialization prospects for the TIMON application in new cities and the transportation challenges faced by other cities and see how the TIMON application satisfies them!
