SAFER INDIA HACKATHON

Safer India Hackathon aims to utilize the intellect and ideation capabilities of the students of premier Technical Colleges of India for developing implementable solutions in the form of digital solutions to promote road safety, to reduce the frequency and effect of road accidents.

ABOUT THE HACKATHON

Safer India Hackathon aims at developing implementable solutions in the form of a digital solution to promote road safety and to reduce the frequency and effect of road accident. It is divided into two phases:

TIMELINE

THEMES

DRIVER
BEHAVIOUR

Improving driver skills and building applications and/or simplistic integrable devices that can make driving much more easier and efficient. Here, we aim to target both domestic as well as commercial drivers. Such improved techniques and assistive technologies can prove to be very beneficial in bringing down the number of accidents.

ROAD
CONDITIONS

We find bad road conditions to be one of the most difficult problems to tackle with an on-ground implementation because of the cost, labour and logistics required. Hence, we shall be looking for some feasible technological or digital solution so as to monitor and handle such problems efficiently.

FRAUD DETECTION
/TPA INSURANCE

It is found that in general, more accidents are caused by rookies and unauthorised drivers. It is sought that some technology may be employed to make the task of analysing and detecting frauds on the roads is made easier. Here, frauds include underage drivers, drunk driving, drivers without appropriate licenses, etc.

CONNECTION WITH
LOCAL AUTHORITIES

Build a Seamless platform to communicate/highlight issues with the local authorities and central ministry over various issues and reporting problems by the locals.

CRASH
INVESTIGATION

Analysing why an accident happened is a very important aspect of our endeavour to build safer roads. If we can come up with a web-tool/app that can make crash investigation easy and help us perform the same in a systematic way, should be a game changer.

EMERGENCY
CONNECT

Working on an web/tool that can improve the post accident emergency space in India. From working on making it easy for the victims to claim financial support to the process of getting an ambulance- there is a lot of gap in the space that can be worked upon by using technology to improve the same.

LEGAL
CONNECT

Working in law space to help people with all the legal solutions at the tap of the button.

VEHICLE
FITNESS

People most often do not know whether there vehicle is in the best state to undertake the journey. We can come up with a solution that can help citizens evaluate the state of their vehicle before every drive and help them any issues before the start to have safe journeys.

JOURNEY RISK
MANAGEMENT

An app/website that can perform JRM for auditors and identify areas which can be improved.

SMART
ANALYZER

A free tool can be developed for the police of the nation that can help them monitor speed of the vehicles, implement odd-even policies, track fitness of the vehicles and age of the same, person wearing helmet or not, has the seat belt on or not based on continuous video feeds.

VOLUNTEERISM &
AWARENESS

An app that can drive volunteerism of people, to increase the awareness level about road safety and it's importance, and come up with user driven content.

GAMES

Innovative games/VR Bases approaches that can be used to teach kids people about road-safety using Traffic Simulations or various other approaches.
