At the SCOTT Vehicle Data Hackathon, the team of the University of Applied Sciences – Campus Hagenberg could win the final. With their idea to use the vehicle data of several drivers provided by the SCOTT partner VIRTUAL VEHICLE (Graz) (which is freely available here: such as speed, rpm, GPS data, steering wheel angle, acceleration sensor values in all directions, temperature of the engine, outside temperature, etc., the team was able to calculate meaningful predictions about the condition of the vehicle or the driving environment, e.g. show where strong brakes happen. They also proposed an algorithm idea to authenticate a driver just by its individual acceleration behavior. Thereby they convinced the top-class jury with representatives from ACCIONA, AVL List, JKU Linz, INDRA, Technical University of Graz, Philips Lighting, GUT, SmartIO, NXP, Nokia, VIRTUAL VEHICLE, and the
University of Oslo. As a reward, the three students Lukas Rogl, Alina Kuttler and Simon Krög of the Automotive Computing Studies at the Campus Hagenberg won 1.250 Euro. Congratulations!

The success was also reported in the media, among other things there was a report in the 2 different editions of the local newspaper „Tips“ ( and reports on the accounts of the University of Applied Sciences, which mention project SCOTT as well.
