Interested in knowing more about Connected, Cooperative, Automated Mobility (CCAM) and how it can benefit citizens and society? Seize the opportunity to take part in SHOW’s Hackathon and help us improve our automated mobility services! The SHOW Hackathon will take place in hybrid form on 23-24-25 November 2021; a pre-Hackathon event will be organized in person on 12 October 2021 at the ITS World Congress in Hamburg (Germany).


The SHOW Hackathon is a 3-day event for multinational & multidisciplinary teams of developers, entrepreneurs,
designers etc., to brainstorm and develop innovative solutions for increasing user acceptance and user benefit of automated mobility, focusing on three challenges:

  • Human assistance stand-by in case of problems: People may feel unsafe using an automated vehicle if there is no safety driver. Cameras on board could automatically detect a problem (using AI) and notify the control center which, if needed, can send someone to help.
  • Adapting capacity to increase in demand in a flexible way: Surplus demand (e.g. due to peak hour, large events, unforeseen circumstances) can be addressed by quickly deploying additional automated buses, to be summoned from a nearby bus depot.
  • Accessibility and assistance for persons with reduced mobility: How can we ensure that persons with reduced mobility can travel independently – how can we keep them informed (e.g. through audio-visual messaging) about accessibility, and how can they notify any need for assistance?
