Following the 2018 Future Mobility Idea Ad-Venture Hackathon from November 10th to 11th, 2018 (click to read), the final idea presentation took place on November 24th, 2018 at Hanyang University Commax Startup Town. Two additional weeks were given to the final teams after the hackathon for further idea development and mentoring. Out of the seven finalist teams, a first prize team and two second prize teams were selected. The Hackathon, hosted by the Center for Global Entrepreneurship, LINC Foundation, and Hyundai NGV, focused on Hanyang University students’ ideas regarding mobility in the future. The event has its significance in that the first prize team is given the opportunity to tour the Silicon Valley in January 2019.  
Nano3, the first prize winning team of the Future Mobility Idea Ad-Venture Hackatho, presented an idea of a passenger notification device utilizing a thermopile sensor and IoT technology called T-Saver, which can save lives in automobiles.

The first prize went to the NaNo3 team, which consists of three 3rd year students from the Department of Organic and Nano Engineering: Kim Do-hyung, Choi Jae-young, and Kwon Tae-young. The team approached the field of mobility with the idea of a passenger notification device combined with a thermopile sensor and IoT technology. The team was inspired by the issue of child deaths inside automobiles during the scorching summer. If the thermopile sensor senses any vital signs in the automobile, it directly notifies connected devices. NaNo3’s team leader, Kim Do-hyung, believes that the team was able to get good evaluations because they took real issues into consideration. Prior to the final presentation day, the team had periodically received mentoring from the Center for Global Entrepreneurship and Hyundai NGV.

“The additional two weeks of idea development and market realization was both mentally and physically tiring. However, receiving first prize made it all worth it,” said Kim. When asked about future plans preparing for the Silicon Valley tour in January 2019, the team answered that they consider this opportunity as an extension of the chance to learn. NaNo3 is planning to apply for a patent with T-Saver and make sales in the near future. 

Quickick, one of the second prize winning teams, proposed the idea of an autonomous self-driving electric kickboard rental platform. The team hopes this can become a base to transport people to a specific destination from bus and subway stations.

The second prize went to two teams: Quickick and AngelsSoft. the Quickick team consists of Kim Han-bin (Division of Economics and Finance, 4th year), Choi Young-chul (Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 4th year), and Kim Han-bom (Division of Mechanical Engineering, 2nd year). The team designed the idea of a self-driving electric kickboard rental platform to develop the idea of autonomously transporting people to desired locations from bus or subway stations. In order to prove its market availability and commercialization, the members rented electric kickboards on campus. “Our main goal during the hackathon was solely to learn. We did not expect to win but feel very fortunate that we did,” said Kim Han-bin. The members of Quickick also added that it would have been better if there were some subsidies from the school to prove commercialization. Quickick is planning to officially start their startup in winter vacation.

The other second prize winning team, AngelsSoft, consists of four members, who became a team after taking a course together prior to the competition: Shin Kang-soo (Department of Policy Studies, 4th year), Lee Jung-woo (Division of Mechanical Engineering, 2nd year), Lee Jun-ho (Department of Physics, 2nd year), and Lee Chang-jun (Major in Bioengineering, 2nd year). AngelsSoft’s future mobility idea focuses on an artificial intelligence drone called ‘Driving Angel’ to predict road accidents and detect any road hazards that are out of the driver's sight. According to the team members, the hackathon was not only about strict competition, but also about producing ideas together on the same topic. AngelsSoft will further study the development of autonomous drones utilizing artificial intelligence.

With three winning teams, the 2018 Future Mobility Idea Final Pitching Presentation Day came to an end, and two more additional weeks of idea development and mentoring proved to be effective. The competition challenged the students’ ideas in the field of future mobility and hopes to be one of the many startup idea competitions hosted by Hanyang University’s Center for Global Entrepreneurship.
