Mobility Hackathon: tapping into the power of Big Data

Valeo is co-organizing a Mobility Hackathon in Paris on March 21 & 22 with Kuantic, a distributor of machine-to-machine (M2M) and telematics solutions. Its objective? Create innovative new mobility solutions based on the vast amount of data collected by connected vehicles.

On-board telematics makes it possible to send, receive and store invaluable insights on vehicles and their usage. From geolocation data to vehicle management and driver management–a wealth of information can be used to create new mobility solutions.

Valeo HackathonThe hackathon in Paris will ask different types of stakeholders to take up this challenge.

For two whole days, teams of students, mobility & fleet management startups and Valeo collaborators will each work on various solutions and present their ideas to a panel of judges.

Their objective is to create solutions targeting three main markets: vehicle fleet management, in order to optimize the costs related to operating the fleet as a whole; repair networks or better control of a vehicle’s repairs or maintenance; drivers: improved use of the vehicle such as eco-driving, safety etc.

The overall winners will get customized prizes: students will win 5 000 euros and get to join Valeo’s incubator program; Valeo collaborators will obtain funding and access to an internal accelerator platform; while startups will get to prototype their solution and present it at an international fair with Valeo.

The mobility revolution is underway!
