Make an impact and hack your IoT solution in many categories
Our hackathon challenges
make it real
make it digital
Make it move
The biggest task lies in movement because the requirements for mobile robots and platforms are very complex: Where am I? What does my environment look like? How can I reach my destination safely? What can be done while moving from A to B? What task must be completed at the destination?
That's the challenge: To detect everything in the environment, not missing anything, avoiding obstacles and reaching the destination safely.
Make it easy
Your daily life is automated. Whether you're sitting on the couch, in the office, or working on a machine, opportunities to automate everyday challenges are everywhere. But the simplicity is often in the details. The solutions are not always obvious, but their effects are indispensable.
That’s the challenge: Make complicated things simple. Bring your ideas to life and simplify everyday activities with voice assistance, remote control, service robots or any other idea you have.
Make it visible
What if you no longer need a crystal ball? The predictability of events is based on sensor data. This data helps to make production processes more effective and more competitive. With your help we make the data visible and actionable.
That's the challenge: Sounds complicated? We need you to make the data come alive.
Make it green
Resources are needed everywhere. Sometimes, however, they are also wasted. Using them wisely and in a targeted way is the right approach to sustainability.
That's the challenge: Find the areas where resources are wasted, energy is consumed unnecessarily, waste can be avoided, or scrap can be fed into new processes. Use your energy to save energy!
make it safe
Achieving a high productivity for machines as well as a high level of flexibility and automation are decisive competitive advantages in the digitalization era. But how to benefit from safety solutions that make processes run smoothly or enable human and machine working as a team?
That's the challenge: Discover safety solutions that protect people from hazards at their workplace, but at the same time ensure and even increase the productivity of production or logistics.
