Cosponsored by TEP—Our Largest IoT Hackathon Ever! Featuring a LoRaWAN Environment Along the Entire TX Railway Area
A wireless environment will be built along the Tsukuba Express (TX) railway area between Hongo (Tokyo) and Tsukuba (centered around the Kashiwanoha-campus area) using the global and open wireless standard for IoT called "LoRaWAN," to hold our largest IoT hackathon in history. The area will be promoted as one large field for developing and testing IoT applications. The hackathon aims that participants' proposals will be assessed by companies on the panel and implemented with an eye toward actual service commercialization that goes beyond the proof of concept phase.
Applicants should select one of the following themes and submit a proposal.
Theme 1: Transportation Issues in Kashiwa City
Theme 2: Issues Attracting Companies to Kashiwa City
Theme 3: A New Form of HEMS
Theme 4: Housing in the Immediate Future
Theme 5: Providing Information to Boost Urban Walks
Theme 6: Urban Spaces Coexisting with Nature (Green Management)
Theme 7: Agriculture and IoT
Theme 8: Free Proposal Regarding Kashiwanoha
Please see the video at the Kickoff Meeting on November 15 for details on the themes.
