Why The Hackathon

Moving Hackathon provides car platforms equipped with computing abilities, sensors, drive-by-wire control and other hardware support, also closed urban roads to test and challenge for global self-driving engineers, who can stay focused on algorithms/software design, optimization and development without worrying about car/hardware to test. 

Moving Hackathon is a self-driving global meetup and hackathon event with two onsite participating categories: Full-sized Self-driving Car Onsite Challenge and DIY Robocars Donkey Car Challenge. With sparking spirit of engineering  and technology innovation as the aim, Moving Hackathon is meant to facilitate the mutual growth and inspiration among self-driving startups, engineers, developers and enthusiasts worldwide, lowering the entry barrier of self-driving for common developers.
