At the New York Consensus event, a bunch of Australians banded together and entered the hackathon.  Playing on the Australian them of the black box flight recorder, the team created an Ethereum based “block box” event recorder, to record traffic incidents using Ethereum, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Power BI and IoT hub.  The winning team included:

Tim Bass form Block8
Nick Addision from Agri Digital
Lucas Cullen from Civic Ledger
Sam Brooks from Veredictum
Special thanks to Mark Staples from Data61 for his input.  Sam’s original white paper and hackathon code can be found here.
