ROAD SAFETY AND TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT HACKATHON7 months ago Saritha Keshamoni
Society for Cyberabad Security Council is organizing a Hackathon on ‘Road Safety and Traffic ‘ powered by Idealabs
As a growing city, Hyderabad faces challenges related to Traffic management, seamless Multi-modal transport, Road-infra, and Commuter behavior.
As citizens, we often complain and go to social media to vent our ire. But can we do something more constructive. Here is an opportunity to give suggestions and showcase innovative solutions to policymakers, key influencers and enforcement agencies.
Society of Cyberabad Security Council (SCSC) along with Cyberabad Police and Cyberabad Traffic Police is hosting a 36 hour hackathon on Road Safety and Traffic Management. Idealabs is the implementation partner for the Hackathon.
We invite solutions to specific challenges on four major themes that have been identified as the major issues by the Cyberabad Police.
19th October 9.00 am to 20th October 6.00 pm (36 hours Overnight Hackathon)
Here is a look at some of the challenges identified:
Unified Platform: Very often, parts of the road-infra is owned by multiple agencies and the resolution of problems raised by citizens gets lost between interdepartmental coordination. Can we have a single unified platform to help citizens raise the ticket. This ticket should automatically create notifications to concerned agencies, give an estimated time of resolution and notify the progress update. Can you build this solution??
Sound Pollution: while we all talk about Air pollution due to traffic, another huge issue with the growing traffic is that of Sound Pollution. Can we have a mechanism to check vehicles/commuters creating excessive sound pollution and come up with means of enforcing it. Do you have a solution to measure and enforce sound pollution???
Integrated Traffic Signal Management: This is an issue that affects all people. Whenever we are stuck at the traffic signal, a thought invariably passes our mind about making the traffic signals intelligent based on traffic density. Should we take into account the vicinity of schools, cinemas, and their timings? Should the system also take into account some dynamic parameters like a rally or a road-diversion???. We invite you to create a solution for intelligent, adaptive and synchronized traffic management systems.
Multimodal Transport: While Metro is turning out to be a boon for commuters, people still face challenges in terms of first-mile connectivity and last-mile connectivity. How can we encourage employees to use public transport, pool cars, etc. Can we make our public transport more reliable and predictable? Do you have some solutions???
