Accelerate the delivery of contextual and personalized contents
in the Connected Car

Drivers are expecting the kind of connected features in their cars that they get from their smartphones and tablets, and the arrival of standard platforms is generating tumultuously development of rich, contextual, personalized and user centric experiences that are deeply integrated into the connected car.


THE CHALLENGE

The CA+Hackathon is an app-building contest held at the Monza Circuit in Italy, temple of speed and automotive innovation and development hub for the smart mobility community. A cool event that brings together teams of technologists and industry stakeholders to shape the next generation of the connected cars.

The CA+Hackathon provides a playful, exploratory environment where disruption and creative ideas are the essential tools for innovation.

The CA+Hackathon gives developers, designers, and entrepreneurs the chance to pitch app and product ideas – form teams – build prototypes- and present to our hackathon judges for a chance to be one of the top hackathon winners who get prizes, publicity and connections through the platforms of Connected Automobiles and Smart Mobility World events.
