EU-IoT Hackathon: Mobile, Sustainable IoT Solutions

Grant Agreement N°: 956671 Topic: ICT-56-2020

What is the EU-IoT Hackathon?

The Cooperation and Support Action EU-IoT is organizing an online Hackathon over a period of 6 months and focused on Mobile Sustainable IoT solutions to encourage developers, students, researchers to discuss, cooperate and develop open-source solutions focused on the EU-IoT scope area: tactile Internet/Human-centric interfaces); Near/Far edge aspects; Infrastructure; Data spaces.

For each proposed challenge domain, there is the possibility to develop three different types of projects or you can also propose an additional project of your own:

  • Technical projects: where the focus is on the development of a technical solution to address the challenge. The outcome shall be provided in the form of open-source code to be uploaded to the EU-IoT Hackathon git repository. TechnicalTemplate.docx TechnicalTemplate.pptx
  • Training skills projects: where the focus is on the development of a training tool to be available online which addresses the specific proposed challenge. Outcome can be: a Web-based training tool; a Tutorial (e.g., PowerPoint, video), etc. SkillsTrainingTemplate.docx SkillsTrainingTemplate.pptx
  • Prototype Business/Design ideas: where the focus is on the development of a business framework for an IoT solution. BusinessTemplate.docx BusinessTemplate.pptx

Why should you participate?

The Hackathon allows you to interact with different exciting IoT projects and their experts (academia and industry); promotes the visibility of your work within the context of the "Next Generation IoT" initiative, and allows you to win with various awards:

  • 1-year membership UnternehmerTUM Makerspace in Munich City Center
  • IoT Starter kits, e.g., Raspberry PI plus Sensor Kit
  • Free tickets to IoT Week 2022 in Dublin
  • And much more to come!

EU-IoT Hackathon dates

The EU-IoT Hackathon event will occur face to face in Munich on June 2022, more details will follow.

Looking forward to meeting you in Munich!

Challenges

Challenge Human/IoT Interfaces: Augmented Reality Interfaces based on the Smart Mirror concept

Smart mirrors are a common tool in environments such as home automation, or even retail.
The starting point for this challenge is the use of a smart mirror as an IoT hub to the real world.
The aim is to integrate new features (feedback to the user) that can improve efficiency and provide a better quality of experience for the user in different environments, e.g., at home, at retail stores (example01 , example02) , in the car (example03) , on the go.

Challenge Far Edge: Sustainable IoT with Tiny ML

Tiny machine learning (TinyML) relates with the application of ML on constrained devices with low power, to perform data analytics without necessarily being connected to the Cloud.
TinyML projects focusing on this challenge are expected to address IoT solutions on the far Edge that could improve detection of collective health abnormal situations, for instance, persons without a mask on a room; abnormal temperature levels in a school; abnormal environmental situations, e.g., a potential fire; analysis of plants health, etc.
The application domains are varied: agriculture, industry, buildings, healthcare, etc.

Challenge Area Data Spaces: Sustainable, user-centric smart mobility

The focus of this challenge is to, based on the analysis of mobility data, come up with ideas and apps that may assist a better functioning of a smart region.
This may relate, for instance, on the development of a solution that can provide real-time information about points of interest in a city.
It may also relate with a platform, such as a dashboard, that, via data fusion and analytics, can benefit a smart city services.
Relevant to address are solutions that can improve sustainability and a green lifestyle.
