TrafficCast Design Challenge Decided Tomorrow

Fabulous Prizes totaling $10,000 will be awarded tomorrow at TrafficCast’s Design Challenge Event at the Curtis Center in historic Philadelphia! The contest, hosted with Technical.ly, asks participants to brainstorm original and innovative ideas to power a consumer facing mobility solution for commuters and daily travellers.

Contestants submitted proposals to meet a Friday deadline last week, and at tomorrow’s event, finalists get the chance to pitch their idea to industry experts and an audience of other coders and like-minded technicians. During their pitches, contestants will explain how their submissions  include Positive User Benefits, Features, How to Balance Driving Centric Features with Driver Safety and Mobile Distractions, and What Makes This Platform Stand Out from other Apps?

Happy Hour drinks and snacks accompany the pitches, prizes and networking. Find out who wins the Design Challenge tomorrow, June 27, from 5 – 7, at 601 Walnut St, #1200 West.
