Mobility Hackathon

The weekend of 8 and 9 October 2022, Stadslab Eindhoven becomes a vibrant pressure cooker for developing new and surprising solutions for challenges in the world of urban mobility.

What is the impact of digitization on our mobility, what can the concept of the 15-minute city mean, which problems have priority: the bicycle first; shared mobility; car-free city center; citizen science; parking; climate neutral; AI powered blockchain?

We invite everyone to join this exciting weekend in a dynamic innovation competition!
Free registration (required).

More information and contact: info@madlab.nl
The hackathon will be English spoken.

At the start of the Hackathon challenges and pitches are presented live. Any participant may pitch their own idea or challenge within the theme Mobility.

Challenges

1. Urban shared mobility network

We strive for a city that is safe and easily accessible for everyone, with an eye for sustainability and a well-maintained public space for living, moving and meeting in the streets. However, the city cannot grow and become more sustainable without a mobility transition. This means more walking, cycling, use of public transport and shared mobility. Or don’t travel – but work from home.
Making these forms of transport attractive requires a mobility system that is competitive with the car. To what extent does shared mobility compete with the car? And is shared mobility an alternative for everyone?

2. Shared mobility for all

How can we make shared mobility accessible to everyone? The commercial offer of shared mobility is growing. It is expected that some large providers will remain, but what about the ‘bottom-up’ initiatives? There are more and more people who do not need their car on a daily basis and want to share it with others. There are also more and more groups of people who buy a shared car together. What can we do to strengthen this development? How can we make it easier to share cars with each other? Solutions are needed to be able to reserve and open cars, but also to automate administration and invoicing.
