Hack n Roll Indore - Ford Mobility Hackathon
Ford’s global mobility hackathon series is making its latest stop in Indore, Central India’s largest city, to help make roads safer for pedestrians, motorists, and bicyclists.
Hack and Roll Indore
, an online software competition open to global participants, has over $30,000 USD in cash prizes for apps that enhance safety and improve traffic conditions.
Recent changes have brought about improved public bus service and bike sharing initiatives in Indore, but traffic fatalities still plague the city; it ranks fourth in traffic accident deaths in India after Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai, with 444 people losing their lives in road accidents in 2015.
Apps that provide new options for safe road sharing will be up for the $15,000 grand prize, and submissions are open through January 26
