Note: This is a screening Round.
Round 3 Details (FINALS : ONLINE PRODUCT EXPOSITION)
In this round, the participants will present their static or dynamic final hardware product. Real final product will be highly appreciated along with the power point presentation for making things clear about their idea. There will be a time limit of 8 minutes for model presentation and rest 5 minutes for answering queries of Judging panel.
All the Students currently pursuing education from recognised institutes are allowed to take part in the event.

➢ Each team has to select their Problem Statement while registering.
➢ By the end of Registration and final product verification, teams will be allowed to present their models in front of jury and judgement will be based on the feasibility, practicability, sustainability, scale of impact, user experience and potential for future work.
➢ Abstract/ Brief description of the Model.
➢ The idea should be related to the domain mentioned in the themes & Open Innovation is allowed.
➢ Plagiarism is not allowed. The abstract should be 100% unique.
➢ Only the team Leader will get the link to Google meet for a presentation session. It would be solely the responsibility of the team leader to ensure the presence of his/her teammates.
➢ On the day of presentation, teams will have to present their Idea in front of the jury.
➢ During the Presentation Round, all members of the team should be present in the presentation.
➢ Within 8 minutes the Prototype presentation should be wrapped up. 5 other minutes will be for answering the queries of Judging Panel.
Note: Arguing with organizers / judges will lead to disqualification.
Use of MODEL DESIGNING & SIMULATION SOFTWARE:
Use of model designing software is allowed but real models will be preferred more.

We all know how solar panels are used to generate electricity from sunlight but its efficiency is hampered by the path of the sun, to tackle which various sun following mechanisms are deployed, which are very expensive to implement on practical grounds as solar panels are very heavy. The task of the team will be to device a method to follow the sun without moving the solar panels.
Lights can either be kept ON or can be switched OFF, but considering the timing constraints the lighting system cannot be kept off at night time. But due to less traffic or usage after midnight all that energy gets wasted. The aim of this problem statement is to device a system to intelligently lighten the college properly and save a large amount of energy. (Please note that the lights are not to be switched OFF at any time in the night.)
This is the most significant problem in any developing country. Design an efficient, practical idea to avoid unintentional injuries in the conviction so that majority of them are avoidable. The accidents to be prevented can be of any type be it Road Accident, Rail Accident, After Accident Measures, Fire , Gas, Water etc.
Waste management is a hot issue in urban management in India. Indians generate 62 million tons of municipal solid waste each year, but only 43 million tons are collected, and under one million tons are treated. The rest ends up in landfills. Waste management is complex: there are several different stakeholders to coordinate, from the households and businesses that generate waste, to the ragpickers, kabadiwalas and traders that handle it, to the recycling centers and landfills that receive it. The lack of uniformity in different cities has made it difficult to consistently replicate international models of waste planning. Design cost effective hardware/software devices required for the same purpose.
Nearly 70% of Indians get their drinking water from the public tap, but the quality and availability of that water are often seriously limited. City administrators overseeing the water supply have minimal access to real-time, hyperlocal data, leading them to make highstakes decisions based on incomplete information. Water utility providers in particular struggle with high operational costs and inefficient delivery of services to their end customers. Meanwhile, sanitation remains a challenge in rural areas: only 34% of rural Indians have access to sanitation centers. The spread of water-borne diseases represents a serious public health risk. Design cost effective hardware devices required for the same purpose.
Despite stringent provisions in the law, manual scavenging continues unabated in India. Manual scavenging is defined as "the removal of human excrement from public streets and dry latrines, cleaning septic tanks, gutters, and sewers." The practice is driven by caste, class, and income divides. "One of the modern India's greatest shame is the official failure to eradicate 'manual scavenging,' the most degrading surviving practice of untouchability in the country." - Harsh Mander (Indian author, columnist). Could this problem be solved? This job makes the life of the person miserable in one form or another! Despite the fact of possible job losses for these people, propose a device for an innovative hardware solution to curtail this high risk of human lives.
Public health aims to improve the quality of life through prevention and treatment of disease, including mental health. This is done through the surveillance of cases and health indicators, and through the promotion of healthy behaviours. Students are encouraged to come up with ideas which can improve the present system of public healthcare.
With many companies coming back progressively to their offices, what solutions could they build on Teams to ensure a safe and organized return to their workplace?
Develop a secure in-house AI-based data processing solution that will help healthcare institutions and hospitals to study and analyse patient’s medical records. Using Deep Neural Networks, robust computational processing, and machine learning, the data processing solution should help medical personnel to streamline their workflows and better manage patient care.
Road traffic management Traffic jams and traffic rules violation is something everyone can relate to. Innovate a tool to aid traffic police in managing traffic jams and facilitate autonomous monitoring of the traffic rule violators.
Under the Swatch Bharat mission we should have all the government offices fitted with these low-cost dustbins which will be smart enough to inform the labour when it’s full and when to empty them. Design a cost-effective smart dustbin meant for offices, homes and parks.
Come up with innovative practices to change the tiresome system of educational techniques for students. It should be competent in Covid-19 times as well
Cyber bullying is primarily harassment using Electronics means, majorly Social Media. This causes emotional pain on young ones and many of them commit suicide after wards. This problem statement requires you to invest your time and bring up an ideas to stop cyber bullying.
As you might have seen the portable brick manufacturing process, on the construction sites using ash and cement. Though the process is much effective in making bricks but is slow and tedious. our aim is to design a system which can decrease the labor cost surrounding the process and increase its speed.
Do your ideas go beyond the limit of the themes presented before you? Brainstorm bold new ideas and apply fresh insights to advance existing concepts. The idea of an open theme is to give students an opportunity to stretch their imagination and come up with innovative solutions to demonstrate day to day challenges faced by people across the globe.
