The theme for the 2014 IT Challenge was Connected Cars. Teams were encouraged to develop innovative context aware applications designed specifically for connected cars, that can be used anywhere, anytime and on any device to add value to a business or an individual.
The proposed ideas were addressing safety and driver’s convenience. Most of the teams chose to address the driver’s mobile phone, instead of relying on integrated hardware of the car, and managed to propose fully working services.
The competition was led in partnership with car manufacturer Renault.
