How can we take mobility to new heights?

In the third program of this unique hackathon series, we will continue with the Big Five, the key core elements of the Future World, by adressing Mobility.

How can data sharing and interconnectedness contribute to seamless travel? Develop an IoT app to bring the world closer to sustainability! 

Startups and other innovative companies are invited to submit their solutions and develop their own IoT application to make mobility more sustainable and efficient through the MindSphere solution.

Data analysis and connectivity transforms mobility!

Transportation has become one of the most crucial assets in our everyday lives. We have seen it evolve, but we have not yet scratched the surface. We need new approaches that will redefine mobility; through digitalization and electrification we are hoping to bring innovation to travel. 

The need for sustainable mobility solutions is at an all-time high! By 2050 we will see an exponential rise in mobility demand: passenger movement is predicted to increase 3-fold globally, 70% of the world's population will live in cities, and more than 30% of global energy demand will come from transportation. This is why Siemens is looking for solutions that merge sustainability with profitable long-term growth. We want to take the world on the road that heals the environment. 

Help create transportation networks that benefit us all.

Discover the MindSphere Smart City App

At the heart of the MindSphere Future World Series stands the ground-breaking MindSphere Smart City App and its IoT framework that bring the physical Expo site into the digital space. 

The app is designed to digitally optimize Expo 2020 Dubai, enhancing the visitor experience and reducing energy and water use during the six-month event. Initially operating across two domains – environmental monitoring and irrigation – the app will collect, monitor, correlate, and analyze data from the site, and then visualize it to allow real-time monitoring and control of infrastructure from static and mobile devices. 

Be one of the great minds during the MindSphere Future Hacks and make the Big Five – Buildings, Energy, Mobility, Industry and Water – smarter!
