SC West is one of the most important security trade fairs worldwide. This year the IoT safety & security startup SAST is presenting a real premiere: the first live hackathon on the occasion of the important security event.

In April the ISC West takes place in Las Vegas, one of the world’s most important trade fairs and conferences for security. Visitors have the opportunity to learn in detail and depth about various innovations and security trends. There in Las Vegas exhibitors show solutions, services, and innovative products and present them in live demos and case studies.

SAST will be among these other innovative solutions and will present his IoT platform live for the first time. SAST is a wholly owned but independent Bosch startup that brings an Android-based app-ecosystem for visual security applications. The company also has a real premiere for the visitors of the ISC world ready: SAST will present the probably first live hackathon on the occasion of the ISC West.

On the 10th and 11th of April, the first two days of the fair, three teams will work on solutions with the SAST ecosystem, write code and publish their apps. These three teams will prove in less than two days that the new SAST system is the ideal platform for programming powerful apps for the security world.

After a technical introduction, the teams each consisting of a computer vision specialist and a developer will develop a deployable solution. The members of the teams each have a suitable background in IoT, image processing and machine learning.

For the hackathon, there will be Google pixel phones as well as reference cameras available – and the appropriate APIs and development kits (not to forget some dummy data) that are needed. The framework of SAST OS consists of a video API, a control API, and a web server API.

The developers starting point within the app skeleton is the RestHandler and there will be a main server that processes the video images in the foreground. Thus, the development teams will be among the first to have the opportunity to experience the development experience of SAST OS.

The SAST OS promise: Executable apps within two days

What we from SAST expect from these two days is on the one hand obviously the development of apps. But, on the other hand, we also want to bring the stunning proof of how impressively easy and fast executable apps and solutions can be developed. In addition, our experience will provide us with input for improvements of SAST OS, our operating system for computer vision and IoT.

Last, not least, we also want to fascinate other developers for the technology behind SAST OS. Because we are convinced that the ecosystem and framework that we are currently creating will soon be a powerful standard for developers and integrators (and also for hardware manufacturers).

The time we can give the teams to develop a fully deployable app prototype is very limited. But we are sure that this challenge will enable us to show how powerful our app environment is. The tasks the teams will accomplish in this tight timeframe all have something to do with sports - and a football stadium.
