The Hackathon on Road Safety is organized by Indian Road Safety Campaign (IRSC) in collaboration with the IIT-Guwahati and BOSCH with the aim of utilizing the intellect and ideation capabilities of the students of premier technical colleges of India for developing implementable solutions in form of digital solutions to promote road safety, to reduce the frequency and effect of road accidents or for detecting frauds.
Our long-term goal for the Hackathon is to launch implementable products/solutions into the market stream that solve some prevalent problem. The competition lay emphasis on developing ideas for Road safety related issues which often becomes the reason behind deaths in road accidents and how to incorporate these ideas to curb such issues.
Hackathon is divided into three phases i.e.
Phase 1 - Interested students are required to register for the submission of their concept note through the online portal. Students can participate as an individual or in a team (max. 4 members),
Phase 2 - Qualified teams are required to submit an execution plan of their concept note. The report must clearly state the concept and technical principles that would be used to generate the prototype, the uniqueness of idea and feasibility in terms of execution and finance. Submit the report on the online portal.
Phase 3 - Selected teams would be called at IIT-Guwahati for the final round where they will be given 36 hours to work on developing an implementable solution.
