MARTA Hackathon: Smart City + IoT
Do you love Atlanta? Want to help make MARTA better?
You can be part of this exciting 24-hour challenge to create solutions to real world problems that will help make the rider experience better and increase ridership.
Smart City + Internet of Things is our focus.
This time around, MARTA will showcase data collected via sensors within the system, specifically on-time data for trains and buses and parking data. Our partners with the City of Atlanta's Smart City initiative will share progress made with the North Avenue smart corridor demonstration project and assets being assembled for it.
Open to the entire community - regardless of your technology orientation.
Coders, cat video enthusiasts, and wood carvers are equally embraced. Whether you love to code, have a passion for design, can herd cats, or just want to help out somehow, you can make a difference!
Join us for just for a few hours or come along for the entire ride!
Participants will gather the first night to form teams and then work like busy bees to present their prototype solutions to a panel of esteemed judges from the community at the end of the 24-hour sprint.
