Challenge: Luge shape Improvement of aerodynamics and adaptation to individual athlete
Challenge description: The creation and design of luge is a very complicated and interesting challenge, because each luge, like a great suit, is designed for each athlete individually tailored to the peculiarities of height. Each of these models has similar, but different, challenges in improving aerodynamics. Given that a full-size wind tunnel is not available in Latvia, most calculations have to be performed using a computer.
Currently, several models of luge covers have been created, which are well suited for individual athletes, but the goal is to create a perfect shape for each athlete of the Latvian national team.
May we succeed!?

During the hackathon, teams can solve the challenges set by the partners, as well work on own new or work in progress ideas.
If possible, we suggest the teams to find ways to adapt their solutions to the challenges set by the partners, as they are looking for teams to work together and start pilot projects after hackathon.
