The ARRB Hack
The Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) is the leading provider of applied research in the transport sphere. The first ARRB Hack focuses on the future of transport and runs on the 28 – 29th April 2018, directly before the pre-eminent ARRB International Conference 29th April – 2nd May.
Strategic workshops, unique data sets, and talented mentors will all feature, as we seek to grapple with the big transport issues of our time, such as the emergence of autonomous driving, connected roads, and electric vehicles.
Wait, but what is the ARRB Hack?
The ARRB Hack is an innovation pressure-cooker event in which teams work intensively across the two days to creatively solve a unique challenge and prepare a final pitch for the panel of judges. Teams can have a wealth of backgrounds, but often include programmers, engineers, designers to build a prototype and others involved in product development, including graphic designers, interface designers, business analysts and project managers.
Who can join?
The ARRB Hack welcomes innovators from around the world. Entrants of all levels of experience and technical expertise are encouraged to enter, however some suggested team assets may include programming, data analysis, engineering and public speaking.
What do I need?
Motivation, determination and a willingness to work in a nimble group. We are looking for technical individuals ready to apply their skills to the transport sector. Bring your machines and your own knowledge. You own the IP, you own the solution and you can earn the accolades. Morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, and drinks will be supplied across the two days.
What can I win?
