Interested individuals are warmly welcome to participate in the UVAR Box hackathon. It will begin online on 9 May2002 and end in an award ceremony at the ITS Congress in Toulouse at the end of May.
UVAR Box is an EU-funded project aiming at the digital communication of regulations on vehicle access to cities to road users, through their incorporation into navigation systems or mobile applications. Access regulations to cities include Low Emission Zones, Limited Traffic Zones, pedestrian zones, parking regulations and congestion charging schemes. The project provides a data structure for these regulations, machine-readable formats of the regulations’ data, and a user-friendly software tool with documentation and training to help authorities put their regulations into this format.
The hackathon is meant to challenge developers to use UVAR data and demonstrate new and alternative uses that are of benefit to both users and city authorities. After the event kicks off on 9 May at a kick-off meeting, participants will have two weeks to submit their proposals. During this time, the UVAR Box Hackathon Committee is available to support participants in case of any doubts.
