IoT #Smartcity #ConnectYourCity #Hackathon #SanFrancisco
Teams collaborated on projects focused around the opportunities in the Internet of Things technology field. Teams explored ideas in the following categories:
Utilities: Water, rainfall, leaks, methane, air quality, gas, waste/trash, smart meters/electric.
Transportation: Parking sensor, bike tracker, traffic/congestion, public transportation, security, speed.
City Services: Tracking assets, capacity, count people, indoor navigation, airport
Infrastructure: Bridges, Man-holes, Seismic, lane tracking, lighting
New Innovation: Polling, wildlife, Tree Health, Moisture, Health monitoring, tracking, education.
As this was my first #IoT Hackathon, I decided to #Hack together a smoke detector using low power specifically for #TinyHackerHouse. The #Hack detected smoke and sent an email notification to the city to report possible fire in the event that it was unattended. I used Texas Instruments Launchpad along with their MSP430 board and SigFox infrastructure.
The event was a great experience connecting with SF Hackers and doing what hackers do best..solving the worlds problems. Looking forward to the next one.
