Join now to unleash the potential of Internet of Things to accelerate Smart Green Sustainability
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
Our enterprise partners will also post several specific problems which IoT could help.
The specific problems will be announced soon.
Category 1 : University or Tertiary Education Students from all private and public institutions in Malaysia.
Category 2 : Professional developers, programmers, designers, engineers, wannabe-technopreneurs, in Malaysia.
Choose a category and form a winning-team of exactly 3 members.
Register online for free in a team of 3 members.
Upload a video pitch* and abstract** of the proposed idea for any chosen theme or challenge.
The video can be presented in any creative way you like. As long as you cover the Need, Approach, Benefit and Competition (NABC)
The Top 10 best ideas will be shortlisted to proceed with real hacking.
* The video should be less than 2 minutes in length.
** Abstract should have less than 300 words.
Originality, Novelty and Wow Factor
Usefulness and Practicality
Execution and Quality of the Prototype
Ericsson Technology and API Adoption
Total Prizes of RM40,000. to be won
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.
