Critical data from oneM2M’s successful smart city deployments will be used in the WISE-IoT Consortium’s IoT4Tourism Hackathon. The Hackathon will be held at the IEEE ICCE Berlin Conference, in conjunction with the IFA consumer electronics fair, which will be held September 3-4, 2017.
The test bed data – taken from the Busan Smart City project and the Alpensia Smart Resort project, both deployed in South Korea, as well as Korea University’s Sejong Smart Campus project – has been chosen to provide competitors with information from proven, real-world applications.
The Hackathon encourages the development of IoT deployments to enhance tourists’ experiences in cities and resorts and at events. IoT app developers, product managers and solution architects from across the industry will be brought together, with the event’s organiser providing oneM2M’s data and platform as a tool to power developers’ participation.
“oneM2M has played a key role in enabling and encouraging the advancement of the IoT industry, with the standards successfully driving various smart city projects across the globe,” said Dr. Fran O’Brien, oneM2M’s Steering Committee Chairman. “This event highlights some of these smart city projects, illustrating how important a collaborative approach is to continue the momentum of the IoT. By sharing this data at the Hackathon, key lessons and expertise gained from these deployments can be shared, helping develop the industry as a whole.”
The Hackathon will combine oneM2M’s smart city data with WISE-IoT platform tools that enable interoperability between devices and applications across the IoT platforms. The developers will then produce functional prototypes, which will be presented to a jury of industry professionals.
“The Hackathon will give IoT developers and engineers a unique opportunity to exploit oneM2M’s real-world data, which powers IoT applications across the world,” said Professor JaeSeung Song, of KETI, oneM2M’s Testing Working Group Chairman. “By making use of the data produced by these successful applications, participants and industry innovators are provided with the effective tools to accelerate industry deployments, while encouraging experimentation and collaboration within the industry.”
The two-day IoT4Tourism Hackathon is open to software and hardware developers, user experience designers, coders and IoT engineers, as well as start-ups and other companies in the IoT industry.
