Students show off smart city commuter solution in D.C.

This week a team of Ohio State students presented their HackOHI/O award-winning platform at the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Opportunity Project Demo Day in Washington, D.C.

Computer science and engineering majors Bobby Yost and Austin Reifsteck, electrical and computer engineering (ECE) major Andrew Fu, and Chinese and ECE double major Gus Workman make up Team Transity. At October’s student hackathon, HackOHI/O, they tackled a design challenge sponsored by Teradata, a global data and analytics company based in Dayton, Ohio.

Influenced by Columbus being named the Department of Transportation’s Smart City Challenge winner last year, Teradata posed several smart city challenges for hackathon students to solve through data analytics and visualization.
