ITS in your pocket – proven solutions driving user services

ITS in your pocket App contest open!

ITS in your pocket is an App development competition open to companies, teams and individuals who want their proposals to be considered for a total prize sum of 100,000€. The competition will give traffic application proposals a wide European visibility and the opportunity to get feedback from experts in intelligent transport systems.

To be considered for the contest, Applications should provide solutions to improve transport safety, efficiency and sustainability, make transport systems more comfortable and should focus on the user needs.

The competition is divided into two tracks:

  • Products and Services – which will be presented at the ITS European Congress 2014 in Helsinki next June. Application period for track “Products and Services” is open until May 7, 2014.
  • Ideas – which can be developed into an app with the support of Demola Network, an incubator for project development present in 5 countries. Developers, start-ups and students who require assistance on working on a new concept can apply until 9 February.
