ThreeB IT GmbH with your idea of an app to improve the parking situation on highways for truck drivers, took first place at the Copernicus Hackathon. The Copernicus Hackathon was carried out by Pioneers on behalf of the European Commission.
ThreeB IT's team has been able to assert itself with a mobile application that allows truck drivers to better assess the parking situation on motorway rest areas and parking lots. This is made possible by using the saddle data provided by the Copernicus program. The aim is to avoid parking problems and lorries parked illegally in driveways, thus also preventing accidents.
Yesterday's closing event was opened with a keynote speech by Tomas S. Jonsson, representing the European Commission. Here, the audience was presented with some factual facts about the European space programme. Afterwards, the three finalists each had three minutes to pitch their ideas and answer questions about the projects and the team.
With the victory, ThreeB IT GmbH was included in the Copernicus Accelerator and thus receives the support of the program to further develop the idea and bring it to market maturity.
