25 people, from 10 teams participated in the Connected Airpot Challenge – a 24-hour Hackathon, sponsored by indoo.rs amongst others, dedicated to gathering ideas for innovative airport solutions and bringing them to life.
Some interesting projects using indoo.rs SDK include:
- A Pebble Airport app that that provides all the useful information to passenger easy and quickly – book a taxi, check your flight status, find your gate, you name it.
- An Intelligent Airport Navigation that uses travellers movements and passenger’s reports to maintain an up-to-date pathfinder, flight status updates, passtime activities recommendations.
- Never ever losing your pet at an airport with the pet tracking mobile app Furry Flyers.

Apart from having fun, the participants also learned a lot about making multiple APIs work together and about airport procedures and regulations.
Next stop is SFO Terminal 2 on December 17, where the teams would have the chance to demo and test their apps in real-time.
