    The BRIDGE SF 2016 UC Berkeley Hackathon explores how Shared Automated Electric and Connected (SECA) vehicles will impact the way people and goods move within a city. Participants will be asked to define and solve these challenges: How will SECA vehicles impact residents, commuters and businesses?; Can SECA vehicles better serve the underserved?; Will SECA vehicles lead to greater safety?; What about adapting to new or unpredictable changes including emergencies?; How can multiple shared services work together?; and How can multi-modal integration be achieved between various public and private transportation modes?

     Our infrastructure faces significant challenges. Infrastructure in urban areas is affected by the need to increase load and usage, and the demand can change every decade. And because current projections show we will face an increase in the number and severity of extreme weather events, our infrastructure needs to be more resilient.

     The future of shared, connected, autonomous, clean, app-driven vehicles and services will transform how we move from place to place. Yet over the coming decades, this evolution could play out in heaven or hell scenarios─and anywhere in between. Joan Walker wants a say in where we end up.

     A sprawling business park, near a patchwork of former salt ponds on the Hayward shoreline, houses more than its share of biotech and energy startups bent on changing the world. Tucked inside these nondescript boxes are companies making innovative batteries to store power from solar and wind farms, ingestible sensors called smart pills to help patients monitor medication intake and, at the offices of Berkeley-born Alphabet Energy, devices to convert wasted exhaust heat into clean, renewable power.
