Representatives of Blue Divine I talked about the course of hackathon and presented their competition project. Hypermiles - directed to companies with vehicle fleets, which reduce fuel consumption by 30% per year with the use of space technology patented by CNES. The system consists of a vibrating device placed on the accelerator, sending feedback to the driver and software, which calculates the optimal route running and how to drive a car. Its advantage for the user is intuitive and easy to use. For more information on solutions can be found at: http://hypermiles.tech/
