Manipal : Team Hacking Bad, from Sardar Patel Institute of Technology, Mumbai emerged victorious in the first 36-hour Manipal Hackathon which concluded on Sunday at the KEF Auditorium here in MIT. The team also walked away with a cheque for Rs one lakh. Team Codelion from Mumbai University finished runners up in the event organized by the Student Council of MIT as part of the annual fest, Tech Tatva 19. They also bagged Rs 50,000.



Mr Rajen Padukone, Group President, Manipal Education and Medical Group (MEMG), Bengaluru was the chief guest. Also present were Dr B.H.V. Pai, Joint Director of MIT, and Dr Narayana Shenoy, Associate Director (Student Welfare).


The theme for the hackathon was,“social innovation”. Each team worked on one of the five given problem statements: to make roadways more efficient; to improve healthcare systems; to reduce crime against women; to make better medical prescription systems and to develop smart city projects. The astounding solutions submitted by the teams served as an attestation to the success of the event. 


Team Hacking Bad developed an application to help improve women’s safety. The application marks regions in a locality as safe or unsafe. Further, it automatically sends SOS alerts to the appropriate authorities and pre-selected contacts upon entering an unsafe zone. It is designed to reduce the reaction time taken for help to reach in these situations.


The runners-up, Team Codelion, from Mumbai University, developed a dynamic traffic light system which works by detecting the number of vehicles approaching a traffic signal and displaying the signals accordingly. Such a system would be more efficient than conventional timer-based traffic lights.  It also has the potential to reduce congestion and pollution in our cities.


Four other teams received a special mention―Team Kuber Techies, Ramaiah Institute of Technology;Team Default, Pune institute of Computer Technology; Team Code O Holics also from the same Pune institute and Team Coldblooded.io from Pillai College of Engineering.

Team Default made a system which detects false documents and prevents illegal immigration in smart cities. Team Code O Holics developed a women’s safety app made available in multiple Indian languages andCold blooded.iocame up with a quality healthcare system with a chat bot, also available in different languages.
