As you know we will provide and support a range of hardware products and cloud platforms at the Hackathon Stuttgart! We think it will help you to fokus on your idea at the Hackathon if you take some time upfront to read about the things we provide, maybe you can even get your accounts or SDKs downloaded before Friday:
See our blog article: http://www.hackathon-stuttgart.de/2015/10/06/here-are-the-things-you-need-for-your-iot-hackathon-project/. You can see a list of the available stuff here:
We suggest that you have a look on the TinkerForge website to see more details. It’s quite likely that you will be able to use that stuff here during the hackathon as well: http://www.tinkerforge.com

As part of the Hackathon car2go will give you access to their API that they use internally in their app and that is used by many 3rd party apps worldwide. For simplicity reason you are not able to access the full API for like even opening the cars realtime, but the basic API gives you already access to all the car positions, their status and you can already reserve cars for later use.
On the car2go website you can find a lot of useful information on the API and how to use it today. Just go to https://www.car2go.com/en/stuttgart/car2go-apps/.
To use the car2go API you will have to sign a special agreement (NDA and terms) with car2go provided at the Hackathon.
