Hack Challenge #1:
Connected Mobility Services

Join the hack challenge Connected Mobility Services and kick-start the next generation of automotive IoT applications. As an example, you can use Bosch mySPIN SDK to easily connect your app to your car – or motorbike. To improve future connected mobility, several use cases come to mind, including driver assistance, driver information and entertainment, autonomous driving, the car as the third living space (your home is first and your office is second), multimodal mobility, preventive diagnosis, or fleet management. Join this hack challenge if you have promising ideas related to connected mobility – and want to bring them to life.
