IIIT-H to host hackathon on smart city on Oct. 28

A two-day developer tutorial using open source implementation of oneM2M, developed by French research lab LAAS-CNRS and organised by India EU ICT Standards Collaboration Project, will open at IIIT-Hyderabad on October 27.

The tutorial would be conducted by a team of professors from University of Toulouse for technology developers and students. A part of the India-EU Partnership Project for Collaboration on ICT standardisation, Policy and Regulatory matters, the programme is being jointly anchored by TSDSI and ETSI, the telecom standards development organisations from India and EU respectively. The tutorial would be followed by a hackathon on October 28, on a smart city theme. The hackathon would seek to create new applications that a smart city could offer its citizens, its elected officials or its technical and administrative services in a multi-domain vision based on the oneM2M standard.

A release from IIIT-Hyderabad said challenges for the hackathon include energy efficiency in smart buildings, pollution monitoring, smart healthcare services and disaster management. The winning team would get a fully paid trip funded by EU to attend a leading startup event in Estonia in January .
