Alstom has teamed up with Ecole 42 to launch a Hackathon event on 17 and 18 March 2016. The challenge is to create a design for the metro of 2030; focusing on connected mobility and a revolutionised passenger experience by creating prototypes for mobility applications, services and how the internet of things will change things through the creation of application programming interfaces.

Students from Ecole 42, a computer programming school in Paris, will predict the way that digital applications will be integrated into mobility solutions as part of the Société du Grand Paris“world’s most connected metro” project.

Public data relating to the transport system in Paris will be made available to students, with additional, anonymous data to be provided by Alstom. An “ideas battle” evening will be held on 8 March 2016 at the school where Alstom will provide experts to meet with students.
