The Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) is hosting its first hack-a-thon in April, focusing on the emergence of autonomous driving, connected roads and electric vehicles.
The ARRB Hack 2018 will run from 28-29 April at The Precinct in Brisbane, Queensland, directly before the 28th International ARRB Conference.
According to the ARRB, its hack-a-thon will be an innovation pressure-cooker event in which teams work intensively across the two days to creatively solve a unique challenge and prepare a final pitch for the panel of judges.
“The ARRB Hack welcomes innovators from around the world,” the ARRB said in a statement. “Entrants of all levels of experience and technical expertise are encouraged to enter, however some suggested team assets may include programming, data analysis, engineering and public speaking.”
