Toyota is to be the first Japanese company to hold a Hackathon in Israel. The Toyota HackCars Days will take place in Tel Aviv on October 23rd and 24th.

Toyota info Technology Center, in cooperation with Samurai Incubate, is aiming to create new ideas with Israeli startups and new global services with high technology in Israel.

The company says that the event is for anyone interested in cars or big data hacking. It will provide participants with WebAPI which enable them to get big-data about trial cars. Participants are required to create new ideas with WebAPI, a web application interface which is used by both the web server and internet browsers.

Toyota says that this WebAPI is the interface to get “Vehicle Data” through our server, such as location by GPS, speed, break, doors, wipers, engine, etc. Only the vehicle data from trial Toyota’s cars can get through it and the operation period of the API server is until the end of November 2014.

The company stated that, “Toyota Info Technology Center is verifying the utilization of Big Data from Toyota’s 100, 000 vehicles. We are expecting Israeli engineers to generate the new idea of vehicle data usage in this Hackathon, and can contribute pleasure and social value to society through smartphone applications in the near future.”

The event is free, but full time attendance is mandatory. There will be 50 participants working in 8 teams of 6-7 members.
