Themes

Geo-location

The purpose of the hackathon is to demonstrate the use of geo-location satellites on smartphone devices through building an innovative application.

Augmented Reality and Games

The integration of positioning with virtual information allows the development of pinpoint services aimed at entertaining or informing users.

Geo-marketing and Advertising

Consumer preferences are combined with positioning data to provide exceptionally personalised offers to potential customers.

Mapping & GIS

The enhanced processing power of modern smartphones, their portability and the location capabilities make them very suitable to develop Geographic Information System applications and create crowdsourced maps.

Fitness, sport and mHealth

Fitness and mHealth applications rely on GNSS –in addition to other sensors- to monitor users’ physical performances.

Smart mobility

Innovative GNSS-enabled applications contributes to the reduction of congestion while implementing faster, greener, and cheaper transportation options.

Enterprise applications

GNSS-based tracking solutions contribute to improving productivity and safety of workers through mobile workforce management solutions.

Social networking

The location of people is a relevant information around which develop specific services in social networks.

HyperTrack

Hypertrack, our hackathon partner, will enhance all these applications by providing historical and real-time location tracking and allowing for actions to be performed on the data. Things like live tracking, trip replays, delay alerts, mileage, assignments, accurate ETAs, location profiling and more.

Prizes
