ABOUT

Ericsson proudly present the second Hackathon “Technology for Good Challenge 2.0” co-organized together with UTM and UPM. This year, the theme of the Hackathon is “Connected Mangroves Challenge 2.0” for the purpose of monitoring Mangroves and environmental conditions that could affect the ecosystem in the area using the next generation of IoT sensors.

The hackathon aims to

  1. Attract new ideas & stimulate innovations in the target IoT solution for Mangrove ecosystem
  2. Create local use cases to accelerate cellular IoT adoption by university and industries
  3. Develop local talents to propel Malaysia as the Premier Regional IoT Development Hub

Hackathon Programme HIGHLIGHT

After the Registration, the top 10 best ideas will be shortlisted to participate in the real hacking to bring ideas to life

A Pre-Hack Workshop will be carried out to prepare the participants with the necessary skills for the prototype development. NB-IoT development kit and IoT cloud platform access will be provided to the participants. Participants may acquire additional sensors and hardware to build the prototype.

The participant will have a month of hacking time to develop the prototype. During the hacking period, periodic progress meeting with industry mentors will be carried out

After 1 month of hacking, the participants will present their prototypes at the Hackathon Final.

The programme then continues with a Post-Hackathon Incubation to nurture the winning teams to be technopreneurs and to refine the prototypes into commercial ready products.
