When Jules Verne published his novel "From the Earth to the Moon" in 1865 it was just a science fiction story. But roughly 100 years later, humans actually did land on the moon. The impossible had become a reality. This is just one example on how technological development has always been inspired by open minds and creative ideas that at a first glance may have seemed outlandish.
SICK is convinced that we need this spirit also today to overcome the challenges we face every day - in our daily life, at home or at work. This is the spirit of the SICK Solution Hackathon.
It gives young talents from universities and startups a chance to bring in their way of thinking and create new ideas to solve the IoT challenges of the world of industrial automation.
Together with hack coaches from well-known industry leaders the hack participants are competing in a 3-day contest at SICK's Sensor Intelligence Academy near Freiburg in Southern Germany.
