NestHACK - Connected Vehicle Hackathon

$10,000 + in prizes and giveaways!

Participating partners - Hertz, Moj.io, AT&T, Gracenote, nVidia

Throughout history, the global automotive industry has reinvented itself again and again, but today, the industry is currently undergoing a revolutionary and unprecedented transformation.The future of the connected vehicle is that of one where there is a wholesale decrease of accidents, more efficient ways of traveling, a significant reduction in terms of emissions generated and a reduction in overall commute time. Whether it’s the expanded application of automotive electronics, intelligent smart systems improving convenience and safety to provide an optimal driving environment and comfort, and new infotainment systems as telematics, the automotive industry is actually undergoing one of its biggest transformation in decades. We’re looking to explore the next frontier in form of the connected vehicle. Specifically, we’re looking to explore: •Short term connected technologies in existing vehicles

•The future of autonomous vehicles and smart sensors

•New business models for helping consumers commute more efficiently

•The impact of social in vehicular transportation •Sustainability and vehicle performance

NestGSV is collaborating with Ann Arbor Spark, as teams from Michigan and California will compete for prizes. There will be a 24-hour connected feed between the two sites. http://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-connected-vehicle-hackathon-tickets-10732263489?aff=meetup

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
