HACKADIR CHALLENGE : Smart City: How can IoT empower the quarter hour city concept
Before we host the World Electronics Forum (WEF) in Morocco, we invite you to participate in the HACKADIR challenge—an exceptional event that merges electronics, the Quarter Hour Smart City concept, and the spirit of innovation. This prelude to the WEF is designed to revolutionize urban environments and shape the future of cities. Engage with talented individuals, explore cutting-edge solutions, and contribute to the advancement of smart cities.
Participants will have the opportunity to explore and propose innovative solutions within three key challenge areas:
Cities require robust and efficient infrastructures to support the quarter hour city concept. This includes mobility infrastructure such as roads, highways, and transportation systems, as well as electronic networks and smart decision-making systems. Energy vectors like water systems and electricity providers also play a crucial role. Participants can address this challenge by presenting innovative solutions that enhance and optimize urban infrastructures.
Smart cities aim to provide enhanced services that improve citizens' experiences and support business activities. This challenge area revolves around the development of primary urban services such as education, healthcare, and administration. Additionally, participants can explore value-added services like banking, purchasing, parking management, tourism, entertainment, and more. By proposing innovative and technology-driven service solutions, participants can contribute to the overall vision of creating smarter and more efficient cities.
A smart city is inherently sustainable. Participants will have the opportunity to focus on sustainability-related aspects, including intelligent building systems, waste management, the use of renewable materials, promotion of green energies, and sustainable agriculture practices. Proposing solutions that contribute to the ecological balance and long-term sustainability of cities will be a significant aspect of this challenge.
Through the exploration of these three challenge areas, participants will have the opportunity to delve into the core components of smart cities, unleashing their creativity and innovation to propose solutions that align with the quarter city concept. Join us on this exciting journey as we pave the way for the WEF in Morocco.
