AT&T and ChallengePost are announcing the Connected Intersections Challenge, a three-month-long competition aimed at designers and software and hardware engineers. Entrants to the challenge are tasked with “[re-imagining] software and hardware technology to keep pedestrians in NYC safe and alert while remaining connected on their smartphones.”

One experience I would love to see is route mapping based on the quality and accessibility of the bike lanes. When Google Maps puts together a Bike route between two points in NYC, half the time I follow it most of the bike lanes are closed and/or inaccessible due to construction.

Seems like an opportunity for a Waze-like crowd-sourced app.
