The Ministry of Transported invited interested people to take part at their Hackathon. Lukily a lot of companies provided us with data eg. City of Aalen, Cit of Stuttgart, Airport Stuttgart, Deutsche Bahn (German Railways), Fahrgemeinschaft.de, Flixbus, INRIX, KreisVerkehr Schwäbisch Hall (local transportation provider), Telefonica NEXT, VVS (local transportation provider) and some other companies who do operate within Baden-Württemberg.
We tried to make life easier for the travellers of the Airport Stuttgart by providing them a calculation of ther estimated time of arrival at the Airport by including multimodal ways of transport (bicycle, bus, car, carsharing and train). We didn’t make it to the well priced first places but we gained a lot of experience and confidence in working with such a data driven business modell.
Thanks a lot team for guiding me through my first hackathon!
