ATX Hack the Traffic

March 4 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

31722953207-28052076

Can’t hack Austin traffic? We think you can!

Are you interested in using data and technology to solve Austin’s transportation challenges? Come to the first ever ATX Hack the Traffic event, co-hosted by the City of Austin Transportation Department and UT’s Center for Transportation Research.

We’ll have single-board computers, travel sensors, and gigabytes of travel-time data for you to experiment with. If you’re able to help us develop an open-source travel sensor, an awesome analytics tool, or beautiful visualizations, your work could be piloted on real-life Austin streets as part of Austin’s Smart City initiatives!

We welcome everyone from first-time hackers to industry experts, and we’ll have tasty local food and beverages to keep you going through the afternoon.

Developers, designers, analysts, and transportation enthusiasts, join us on March 4 at Galvanize Austin to #HacktheTraffic!
