Hackathon Projects

These are the concepts/projects that were developed at Traffic Jam Session.

Cocomute – commuting social

cocomute

Concept:
Cocomute is an interaction platform accessible in public transportation via a mobile app. It helps people with common interests find each other and create connections during their commute. This ad-hoc digital platform is a new communication channel that can also be leveraged for other purposes such as channeling traffic info, connecting with train staff, marketing offers and much more.

Can I fit?
can_i_fit

Concept:
With the help of an infrared camera mounted in the bus and in the train, you are able to count how many passengers there are on the bus. You are able to see if there’s any space left for you and your baby stroller, wheelchair, or bike. The web-app suggests the nearest station at hand and gives you a good hint of how much space there is in the next bus or train approaching. Wherever it’s possible, the same info is displayed at Skånetrafiken’s info screens.

PingPal Meetapp

pingpal_meetapp

Concept:
PingPal Meetapp provides an easy way to meet up with friends. It suggests the geographically most  accessible cafe between you and your pal, with the least travel time. Just pick a pal from your phone book and explore convenient travel routes. Then follow your bus location in real time. Also, PingPal Meetapp provides a simple way to text-message your pals.

Enaks

enaks

Concept:
Enaks makes it possible to combine your Jojo card with the current Skånetrafiken App. It enables you to load the card the same way at the web, buy tickets with the remaining cash-balance, and take a peek on the last 10 trips you have made with the Jojo card. And to make the Jojo card even more attractive to new users and keep the old ones is to make a simple gamification to it. A solution to that is the Jojo card itself, its unique number, making the user not consider the card as something you only pay and refill.

Time to go

time_to_go

Concept:
The simplest travel-guide app for commuters. Use it to figure out what time the next train or bus leaves. It only gives you the minutes. It can be used all over the world. It expects you to know the route already.

SIGMA: In Time

in_time

Concept:
Use ‘sensmitters’ (sensor and transmitter) to measure technical bus information like movement, temperature, vibrations, and acceleration. In Time uses Microsoft’s cloud service Azure to store information, and two Android applications to collect and present information: One for the bus driver and one for the passenger to get realtime bus information. There is also an admin web interface and a data visualization application (QlikView) for  analysis.

GoBike

go_bike

Problem: Users do not start and stop tracking applications when going biking and thus do not track data during most of their rides. Users want correct results, not complications.

Solution: A bluetooth enabled cadence tracker (the rate at which a cyclist is pedalling/turning the pedals) on the bike communicates with an Android phone to track when a biker starts and stops the bike, as well as the position of the bike. This is then presented in a web app displaying the ride on a map and a Google Street View image of each stop.

Team:

  • Lars Sehested (web dev)
  • David Pettersson (visionary & Android)
  • Robert Stanescu (Android & app hero)
  • Antonis Gkouskos (hardware & app hero)
  • Joakim Tornhill (support)
  • (Andreas Krohn (mentor, API ideas)

EscapeCompass

EscapeCompass

Concept:
A minimalistic and playful mobile app letting you “escape” in any direction, taking you on unexpected journeys. Meant as an exploration app to explore your city from more unexpected angles than ordinary travel planners provide.

Team:

  • Johan Bichel Lindegaard (nailgun developer)
  • Jonas Jongejan (gluegun developer)

Write on this Wall

thiswall

Concept:

‘Write on this Wall’ enables you to attach virtual discussion forums to physical landmarks. It automatically generates a pdf with a unique id to put on the landmark.
