Improving City Living with Smart Lighting Data
Hackathon platform Devpost and GE have partnered to launch the Intelligent World Hackathon, an ongoing challenge for civic hackers to develop smart city applications with data from Internet-connected lighting systems. Hackathon participants have access to real and simulated datasets generated by sensors in GE’s smart streetlights and indoor lights, as well as access to GE’s Internet of Things analytics platform Predix, and they will compete to develop apps that improve one of four aspects of city living: parking and traffic, intelligent buildings, public safety, and pedestrian planning. Winners of the Intelligent World Hackathon, which concludes August 2, 2016, will receive cash prizes totaling $58,000.
