How can TomTom help drivers minimize stop-and-go situations, providing a safer and smoother driving experience?
Safety is massively important to us. It’s not always about the fastest or shortest route to get to a destination – sometimes a longer journey with fewer stops can protect drivers. This is where you come in.
Hacker-level challenge: With a sandbox app we provide, create a routing mode to change a route from fastest to smoothest, minimizing stop-and-go moments. Think of the most common and avoidable situations, e.g., traffic lights, priorities at intersections, crosswalks, etc.
Master-level challenge: On top of the hacker level, create a routing mode that works with more use cases and road situations. Compare the extra miles with the need to stop-and-go in certain scenarios.
Skills needed: Basic programming, Network/HTTP experience in Kotlin or Python; Nice to have – user research, mobile UX design
