The CleanAI team had just 24 hours to hack into a real car via the fresh Mercedes-Benz Mobile SDK provided by Daimler. Our team was able to turn a brand new EQC into a new, CleanAI-boosted version that closes any that were left windows open after a ride, read battery levels and more. Leveraging the Mercedes-Benz Mobile SDK and tapping into the EQC's full functionality was a very exciting task!

For those of you not familiar with CleanAI: the AI-powered platform uses Machine Learning and sensors to detect dirt and lost belongings in shared cars and public transportation. This helps companies to identify issues remotely and respond in real-time, which results in better customer experience.

We are super proud to take home the shiny new A-class & look forward to further explore the API using the generous 20.000€(!) worth of SDK credits Mercedes-Benz kindly provided us with! We also want to say a HUGE thank you to the organizers: DigitalLife@Daimler, Me-convention & Mercedes-Benz. Obviously, it wouldn’t have been possible without you.

And of course we want to give a shoutout to the other teams, there’s some good stuff there! So, well done: RideBee, Vialytics, home-iX, Car eWallet, Vimcar, NX Technologies, Metacity, autoaid, ParkHere, mobilApp & Pace.

HACKIAA

See you again next year or at another hackathon!
