UrbanThings: A TfL Hackathon winner

After an exciting and busy week of hacking, Friday the 30th of September saw TfL’s Data in Motion Hackathon draw to a close. Teams were invited to present their ideas to a panel that consisted of representatives from TfL, Geovation and Amazon Web Services.

We are pleased to reveal that UrbanThings was named as one of the winners. After a tense period of deliberation, the judges reviewed the entries and were particularly impressed by our Top Secret Idea™ (shhhh). As a nice bonus, we were also awarded some pretty cool prizes to take away.

It was really useful to spend a solid week generating ideas from the new datasets TfL provided, and we are looking forward to developing our idea directly with TfL as they seek to maximise transport capacity throughout the capital.

Watch this virtual space for the next big thing!
