KTM 2019 Digital Challenge
salmanfaris last edited by salmanfaris
The KTM Digital Challenge is a unique opportunity for developers and teams to transform the journeys of motorcyclists around the world. The judging panel is looking for applications and services that address the three following scenarios: Hills (ups and downs, needle curves), Highway (higher speeds) and City (stop and go) in unique and disruptive ways, in doing so enhancing the ride for the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT rider. KTM will be providing all participants with data from a new KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT in those three scenarios as well as a lightweight, in-browser emulator. The data set includes data from the CAN bus, as well as localisation, acceleration and much more.
The winning team or teams will be invited to the headquarters of KTM in Mattighofen, Austria,to engage with a full team of experts in a 2-day KTM Inno Camp to explore and test their ideas, receive technical feedback, consider integration options (technical, eco-system, commercial), discuss viable business strategies and draft roadmaps, with all travel expenses covered by KTM. Teams will work directly with senior managers in product management, R&D, innovation and other departments such as After-Sales, IT, production and finance. This KTM Inno Camp will take place in October in new KTM Motohall.
KTM 2019 - Digital Challenge
We are very happy to launch the KTM Digital Challenge — an exciting and unique opportunity for developers and third party services to build applications and services for connected KTM motorcycles.
️ What can you expect from the KTM Digital Challenge?
We’re inviting teams to think up innovative and original connected vehicle apps and services for users of KTM motorcycles that solve the unique problems these riders may face. Using our extensive and varied range of APIs, we want you to put yourselves in the driving seat and reimagine the future driving experience of a rider of a KTM 1290 Super Duke GT MY19.
️ What are we looking for?
The panel of judges for the KTM Digital Challenge are open to all sorts of solutions that add value to the user.
️ Deadline and Prizes
The deadline for the challenge is the 21st of July 2019 and winners will be selected by the judges on the 31st July 2019.
The winning team or teams will be invited to the headquarters of KTM in Mattighofen, Austria, to engage with a full team of experts in a 2-day innovation bootcamp to explore and test their ideas, receive technical feedback, consider integration options (technical, eco-system, commercial), discuss viable business strategies and draft roadmaps with all travel expenses covered by KTM.
️ How to take part ️
Have we piqued your interest? Then simply head over to the KTM Digital Challenge webpage to check out the APIs and sign up to play around with the tailormade Super Duke motorcycle emulator. We’re excited to see how your applications and services will transform the rides of motorcycle users!

@salmanfaris best if you could point me to an example that works as described: getting different values depending on hoe close the finger is without really touching. nothing i tried did work yet
@salmanfaris I haven't found a good sensor module for this at all. I used a thing which was calles touch sensor and it returns only 1/0. Tried to use touchRead() but it is not sensitive apparently, only 40 and 1 more or less.
#define touch_pin_numer 33
const int VALUE_THRESHOLD = 30;
TOUCH_SENSOR_VALUE = touchRead(touch_pin_numer);
if(TOUCH_SENSOR_VALUE < VALUE_THRESHOLD)
Serial.println ("Touch ON");
Serial.println ("Touch OFF");
should show something between 40 (current max) and 1 (current min) the closer the finger gets but it shows 40/41/39 and 1 - nothing inbetween. got this code from the web
@FlorianB Can you share the code, output window/error and details of the sensor module?
Hi! I am trying to add an capacitive sensor to the ESP32, that will work through glass with 3mm thickness and an distance of 8 to 2 cm. I have bought sensors which only work on touch, i have looked into the touchRead() function but cant get a steady value increase/decrease with distance and only a real touch gets me enough difference to count it as a "touch". I have checked Arduino examples with foil where a resistor can set the sensitivity but nothing worked on my ESP32. i have spent hours looking for an example, can somebody point me to one please?
