Ford Mobility's Kerbspace Hack is a two-day innovation sprint inviting tech experts to generate intelligent solutions using the Kerbspace API portal and data that can help improve kerb space in the city of London.
About Kerbspace Solutions
Digital Kerbspace is a suite of bespoke solutions that have been developed in collaboration with city and local government partners to manage their kerb space more effectively.
Traffic congestion, emissions, road accidents, etc. limit the efficiency of urban transport systems. Kerb plays a pivotal role in transforming urban transport systems, not just for on-street parking but as pick-up/ drop-off points, delivery hotspots, parking new mobility vehicles, etc.
Participants will be challenged to design a solution that would improve or optimise mobility utilising kerb assets - today and in the future.
Teams will choose one of the three challenges to focus on:
Ford Mobility's proprietary data set in CurbLR format (SharedStreets) for Camden, including kerb restriction, kerb permissions, tariffs, linked to kerb geometry.
Openly Available datasets
Camden Open data: Street Lighting Map, Street Works Register, Camden Air Quality Monitoring, Camden Neighbourhood Profile, Location of Trees, Cycle counters, POIs.
On-Street Crime, Road collisions/ fatalities, Parking Services Penalty Charges, EV charging stations
Open data portal: Participants are allowed to use data from all openly available sources, including but not limited to Camden open data, google, TfL open data, open streets, etc.
Bring your own devices
On-site wifi connection will be available
