IN PRAGUE, THE WHOLE WORLD THOUGHT UP FUTURE TRAVEL

Hackathon. This word combines two concepts from completely different worlds – computer hacking, i.e. modifying and improving programs, and an athletic marathon. The results of this resourceful discipline are here to change the future. And how did the hackathon in Prague turn out?


ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab hosted Smart Mobility Hackathon 2019 in Prague over the second weekend in April. Programmers from thirteen countries spent forty-eight hours working on ideas about how travel and transportation will look in the future.


It is becoming increasingly difficult to move around in overcrowded cities and we need to address how to reconcile a basic human need – mobility – with ever stricter emission standards, infrastructure options and sustainable development. The way we travel in ten years’ time will be very different from today's modes of transport. Cars will also change significantly. And the hackers gathered to show what that future will look like.
