Velove is a blockchain app which rewards people for commuting with their bike. There are 4 million commuters in Switzerland, more than half of whom use cars to get to work. 31% use public transport and only 15% walk or cycle. That's why we create velove, with which we want to encourage and reward people to ride more with bikes. By riding the bike to work, you can earn our virtual currency – the CO2 token. Once your ride is finished, we tell you how much CO2 tokens you have earned and how much you have reduced your carbon offset. Of course you can also send the CO2 token to other people in the network - CO2 is a real ERC20 token on the Ethereum blockchain.We are convinced that such an approach could be effectively successful and I would be super happy to discuss it with CO2-Friendly Partner. Our CEO is looking forward to drink coffee with you ;#sbhack19



Livealytics provides a complete, GDPR ready analytics solution for measuring and benchmarking the performance of sales and live marketing promotion activities, trade shows, and retail spaces. Axelra relaunched the digital product of livealytics and, together with the livealytics team, took it to the next level, in terms of the business model and in sales. The new product is deployed on the cloud, and its onboarding, setup, measurement, and reporting processes are fully automated. Projects can be configured in 90 seconds, and as the mobile connectivity is built in the IoT sensor, no technical expertise, training, or on-site staff is needed.

Livealytics's architecture

The Livealytics platform is entirely cloud-based through Amazon Web Services (AWS). Incorporating an intuitive dashboard, various measurements are generated and can be configured. In the background, IoT sensors are configured through AWS IoT Core. With this setup, the user only needs to plug the sensors in and any further configuration is not required but customization is possible. When a measurement has terminated, the data is processed and aggregated in the cloud to be displayed in the dashboard.

Tech insights

The system is built on the AWS stack, with AWS Lambda, AWS Cognito, and AWS RDS. AWS IoT Core with its Device Shadow allows users to manage the IoT devices remotely. The amount of people within the sensor’s range are measured by passively listening to Wi-Fi scanning signals constantly being emitted by smartphones. The frontend was built with React Native and apllied libraries such as Redux and Redux-Saga to manage the application state. The build pipeline is based on AWS Amplify and enables continuous deployment.
