Goal: Leverage data from OnStar APIs to create new applications that benefit customers (Chevy Volt owners), building managers and utilities. Reduce a customer’s utility bill by proactively setting the Chevy Volt to charge at a time when there is typically a lower load and lower cost energy (this is known as “Time of Use” or TOU). Improve Chevy Volt electricity use by actively controlling these Volts while they are plugged into the electric grid (this is known as “Demand Response”).Learn More

Using SFPark's open source code made available by the SFMTA and developers of SFPark, create a multi-modal trip planner. It should present the user with the information they need to make informed decisions about their commute before they leave home, comparing the available options in terms of time, cost, health, and environmental impact (see reroute.it).

Huddle - Claim Workspace
Huddle around challenges or pitches that resonate with you, or ask for help being assigned to a team. Your team should identify a workstation, and sign up all members to that station for the weekend.
