Linfox names FuelHack winner from RMIT

Leading logistics company, Linfox, has announced the winner of its FuelHack initiative.

Held over 28 hours on 9-10 of May, the hackathon, orchestrated with Melbourne-based tech and innovation hub YBF Ventures sought to develop innovations around reductions in operating costs and environmental emissions by optimising fuel consumption.

A judging panel heard participants pitch their ideas for a shot at the grand prize of $8,000.

Two artificial intelligence (AI) focused teams were, to the surprise of many, announced joint winners, splitting the total prize pool.

Second placing received $2,000.

Winners Tim Kallady of Piccard and Arian Probowo, Darcy Morgan, Nan Gao, Sichen Zhao and Wei Shao of RMITCRUISE++ will also receive $10,500 worth of free coworking space at YBF Ventures.

“The FuelHack was an intense 28 hours," said Linfox Chief Technology Officer Nick Delija.

"All ten teams worked incredibly hard to find stand-out technological solutions to optimise Linfox’s fuel use,” he said.
