Car drivers select their routes based on the information obtained about accidents and traffic congestion along the route. In recent years, nowcasting and forecasting of various traffic risk events is being performed by using diverse sensor data. However, there is no clarity as yet on what and how to communicate to the driver in case there are traffic risks on the route. In this paper, we have developed an environment that enables non UI experts to quickly create car navigation prototypes by using traffic risk data. This paper includes our report on a hackathon that we held using this environment. The hackathon theme was "Develop a new car navigation system equipped with a mechanism that makes the driver aware of traffic risks and helps them determine the most appropriate driving routes." Twenty three researchers and professionals from the field of traffic engineering participated. Our results have brought certain common problems to the awareness of the experts. The information obtained from this report will be very beneficial for our community to determine the direction of collaboration.
