Mateusz Białek, Kamil Choromański and Jakub Łobodecki from the Faculty of Geodesy and Cartography of the Warsaw University of Technology (PW) have created an application that opens up new opportunities for electric car users. Their solution won the international hackathon TomTom n.EXT.
Nearly 80 students from the United States, India, the Netherlands and Poland, i.e. countries with branches of TomTom company specialized in the production of navigation systems, participated in the hackathon.
Participants had five days to develop a solution to one of three challenges: how drivers can deliver goods, food and transport people more efficiently, how TomTom can help drivers enjoy their time while charging an electric vehicle, and how TomTom can make journeys of group motorcyclists safer and more enjoyable.
WUT students’ application enables the user to actively spend time and choose interesting places to visit (e.g. museums, parks or good restaurants), and the application will calculate the route to allow them to be visited while charging the car.
